Emergency contraception (EC) is a safe way to prevent pregnancy after unprotected sex. Different types of EC include pills (e.g. Plan B, Ella) and the copper IUD. EC pills need to be taken within 5 days of unprotected sex to be effective, and the sooner the better! The most common type of EC, Plan B, is available over the counter without a prescription to people of all ages.
But knowing when to take EC and how to get it can be both awkward and intimidating, especially for teens. It shouldn't be.
Young people should be able to afford and easily access EC in order to engage in safe sex and be able to take care of their bodies.

When anxiety and financial constraints can be immobilizing, our chat will help teens make the best decision for them given their specific situation, resources, and constraints.
