Emergency Contraception (EC) is a safe and effective way to prevent pregnancy after unprotected sex.
EC is also known as emergency birth control, backup birth control, the morning after pill and by the brand name Plan B.
It can be taken up to 5 days (120 hours) after unprotected sex, but it is best if taken as soon as possible.
Public Health can help you determine if EC is right for you. Also, we can provide education and resources to help avoid the need for EC in the future. Plan B is available for clients.
You may want EC if:
You didn't use a condom or birth control
The condom broke during sex
You forgot to take your birth control
You were forced to have unprotected sex
