Emergency Contraception

Learn more about morning-after pills and your options.

had unprotected sex or contraceptive failure?

If you’ve recently had unprotected sex or the condom broke, you might be feeling anxious about the possibility of pregnancy. 


Note: Emergency contraceptives do not prevent the spread of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and there are potential risks and side effects to be considered.


If you are already pregnant, we can provide a free nurse consultation, including information on medication abortion (the abortion pill), abortion procedures, and all your pregnancy options.

What are emergency contraceptives?

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, 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. Ella is another emergency contraceptive and it works more similarly to the abortion pill.

How does the morning-after pill work?

The morning-after pill is used to prevent pregnancy after unprotected sex. If conception (a new pregnancy) has already occurred, it then works to prevent implantation. It does not prevent conception. 

Things to Note: We provide evidence-based education on emergency contraceptivs and your options, but we do not provide contraceptives.
