What Is Emergency Contraception?.

Updated: Sep 29, 2019


In the U.S., progestin-only EC is available on the shelf without age restrictions to women and men. Look for Plan B One-Step, Take Action, Next Choice One-Dose, My Way or other generics in the family planning aisle.

Emergency contraception is birth control that prevents pregnancy after sex, which is why it is sometimes called “the morning after pill,” “the day after pill,” or “morning after contraception.” You can use emergency contraception right away – or up to five days after sex – if you think your birth control failed, you didn’t use contraception, or you were made to have sex against your will.

Emergency contraception makes it much less likely you will get pregnant. But emergency contraceptives are not as effective as birth control that’s used before or during sex, like the pill or condoms. So if you are sexually active or planning to be, don’t use emergency contraception as your only protection against pregnancy. Also, emergency contraception does not protect against sexually transmitted infections, like HIV (only condoms do). For help choosing the best regular method for you, try these free online tools: Bedsider, Method Match (from ARHP) or My Contraception Tool (from a UK-based educational website). ***There is evidence that progesterone only EC (Plan B) is less effective for larger people. Ella or a copper IUD insertion may be the best option if you weight more than 150 lbs***
