Emergency Contraception (Morning-After Pill)
If you’ve had sex without using birth control, made a mistake using your method, or been sexually assaulted, there’s still a way to prevent pregnancy—but you need to act fast.
Emergency contraception is contraception that you can use to prevent pregnancy up to five days (120 hours) after unprotected sex. It is safe and effective. There are two types of emergency contraception: morning-after pills and certain IUDs.
You can get some types of morning-after pills (like Plan B) without a prescription at drugstores, grocery stores, or Gynadoctor health centers.
For other types of emergency contraception (such as the IUD or ella), you need an appointment or a prescription from a Gynadoctor health center or other doctor or nurse.
Professional staff at your local Gynadoctor health center can provide you with more information about emergency contraception and help you get the morning-after pill or IUD.
