Emergency contraception is a drug designed to take after sex to prevent or end a pregnancy at its earliest stage. Sometimes it’s referred to as the morning-after pill. The two most common types are Plan B One-Step and ella.
Both kinds of morning-after pills can be used up to 3-5 days after sex, but Plan B One-Step becomes less effective over time. Some types of emergency contraception are sold without a prescription, while others require a prescription.
If you think you might be pregnant, your first step should be to take a pregnancy test. You can contact us to schedule an appointment or come by our office when you have time.
