Emergency Contraception

NOTE: We offer accurate information about all your pregnancy options; however, we do not offer or refer for abortion services or emergency contraception. The information presented on this website is intended for general education purposes only and should not be relied upon as a substitute for professional and/or medical advice.


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

Commonly sold as Plan B One-Step and ella®, emergency contraception may reduce the chance of pregnancy. These medications are reported to work in several possible ways: Delaying ovulation, blocking sperm from joining with an egg, or preventing a fertilized egg from implanting - some may consider this a very early abortion.1,2,3

Emergency contraception does not prevent the spread of sexually transmitted infections (STIs), and there are potential risks and side effects to be considered.4

To learn more about emergency contraception, its risks, & side effects, schedule your confidential consultation.
