Emergency Contraception

Emergency contraception is birth control that prevents pregnancy after sex, which is why it is sometimes called "the morning after pill," "the day after pill," or "morning after contraception." You can use emergency contraception right away - or up to five days after sex - if you think your birth control failed, you didn't use contraception or you were forced to have sex.

In the United States, emergency contraception is available without a prescription for women and men 18 and older. Just ask your pharmacist for Plan B.
