What is Emergency Contraception?
Emergency Contraception, also known as "the morning after pill," is a safe and effective way to reduce your risk of pregnancy up to five days (120 hours) after unprotected sex.
There are two different types of emergency contraception:
You may want to use Emergency Contraception if:
- The condom broke or slipped off
- You missed two or more birth control pills
- Your diaphragm or cervical cap slipped out of place
- You weren't using any birth control
- You were forced to have unprotected vaginal sex
Affordable emergency contraception is always available at Planned Parenthood. Some types require a prescription and others are available over-the-counter. Call 1-866-476-1321 to get an estimate or to get emergency contraception.
