Emergency Contraception Questions & Answers
About Us

The condom broke?
You missed a few pills?
Or you simply forgot about birth control in the heat of the moment?

EMERGENCY CONTRACEPTION (the morning after pill) can reduce your risk of pregnancy by up to 89%.

It has truly been our pleasure to serve you over the years, but our service is no longer necessary because emergency contraception is now available WITHOUT A DOCTOR'S PRESCRIPTION!

That's right! On August 24, 2006, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Plan B for over-the-counter sale to women and men 18 and older in the United States.

On March 23, 2009, a federal court ordered the FDA to approve Plan B for those 17 and older without a prescription.

And on August 28, 2009, the FDA approved Next Choice, a generic version of Plan B that is also available over-the-counter.


If you have had unprotected sex and need emergency contraception, please visit your local pharmacy to obtain Plan B or Next Choice as soon as possible. Both emergency contraceptive products are sold at the pharmacy counter, but you will not need a prescription if you are 17 or older. At this time, women 16 and under must have a prescription to obtain emergency contraception.
