If this is you, you might need Emergency Contraception

What Emergency Contraception is, what it is not, and why a person may want to make an emergency contraception visit…

First, here is what it is not!

  • It is NOT a method of abortion and it will not cause an abortion.
  • It will NOT work if you are already pregnant from a previous sexual encounter and it will NOT cause birth defects to a developing fetus.
  • It is NOT a way to prevent sexually transmitted infections.
  • It does not prevent HIV/AIDS or other sexually transmitted infections.

What Emergency Contraception IS:

It is a safe and reliable method for prevention of pregnancy after unprotected sex or failure of a birth control method (which often means the person was not using their method correctly).

We have two options available for Emergency Contraception.

  • Plan B = One Step Plan B One Step is one hormonal pill that must be taken within 72 hours of the unprotected sex.It is up to 84% effective if taken promptly.
