Emergency contraception pills prevent pregnancy by temporarily stopping the release of an egg from a woman’s ovary. The pills should be started within five days of unprotected vaginal intercourse. The sooner the pills are taken, the more effective they will be in preventing pregnancy. The pills will not work if you are already pregnant.
Choice Medical Group (Now FPA Women’s Health) offers affordable emergency contraception at each of our locations with no appointment necessary. Call the clinic nearest you for further information.
