Emergency Contraception

Plan B or "Morning After Pill"

Emergency contraception, commonly called “the morning-after pill” can be used to prevent pregnancy after having sex without birth control or if a birth control method has failed. It is an option for women who have had unprotected intercourse and do not wish to become pregnant.

You are a candidate for emergency contraception if you have had unprotected intercourse within the last 72 hours. If used within 72 hours after sex without birth control , emergency contraception can be very effective. A woman with a history of blood clots, high blood pressure, or cancer of the breast, uterus, or ovaries, may not be considered a candidate for emergency contraception.
