PH Logo Emergency Contraception

Emergency contraception (sometimes call the "morning after pill") helps prevent pregnancy when taken within 120 hours after sex without birth control (unprotected intercourse) or failed birth control.

How it Works
Two pills containing hormones similar to those found in birth control pills (estrogen and progesterone) are taken to change the lining of the uterus and make it unlikely for a fertilized egg to implant.  Emergency contraception is safe for all women to use.  Emergency Contraception will not end an established pregnancy or harm the baby if a woman is already pregnant.

Availability
If you think you are in a situation needing emergency contraception, please call Clinic 555 as soon as possible.
