How do I get emergency birth control?
If you are over 17 years old, you can purchase the pill from the pharmacy without a prescription. If your partner is over 17 years old, they can purchase emergency birth control for you. Our clinic can also give you emergency birth control.
If you had unprotected sex for any reason, you can use emergency birth control and lower your risk of pregnancy. If this one pill is taken within 120 hours (5 days) of unprotected sex, there is about a 75% chance you will NOT get pregnant. The sooner you take it, the better! If you are already pregnant, it will not end the pregnancy nor harm the baby.
