emergency contraceptive information

Emergency contraception is any type of birth control used after unprotected intercourse or a known or suspected contraceptive failure (e.g. a broken condom) to attempt to prevent pregnancy. The morning-after pill, also known as Plan B, is the most commonly used emergency contraceptive. The morning-after pill is not the same as the abortion pill or a chemical abortion and should not be used to end a pregnancy.

should I take the morning-after pill?

You can only become pregnant on certain days of the month — around the time that you ovulate. Taking the morning-after pill during a time when you cannot become pregnant needlessly exposes you to a large dose of hormones and costs you money. If you are already pregnant from an earlier sexual encounter, taking the morning-after pill is of no value and may cause unpleasant side effects.

how we can help

If you think you may be pregnant, make an appointment today. We provide free pregnancy testing and can confirm or negate a potential pregnancy. Before taking any emergency contraceptives, it's important to rule out pregnancy.

During your appointment, you will also learn about the different types of emergency contraceptives, how they work, and any side-effects. 

If you are already pregnant, we can provide a free pregnancy options consultation, including information on medication abortion (the abortion pill), abortion procedures, types of adoption, and parenting options.
