It happens

Birth control lapse? Condom break? The “morning after pill” works by temporarily stopping your ovary from releasing an egg. Without an egg to fertilize, you can’t get pregnant.

Emergency Contraception Questions?

How do emergency contraceptives work?

Emergency contraceptives, like Plan B® and Ella®, work by blocking your ovaries from ovulating. If you do not release an egg during ovulation, you cannot get pregnant. Emergency contraception is not an abortion pill and will not work if you are already pregnant.

What is the difference between Ella and Plan B?

Plan B® is currently FDA approved for use up to 72 hours (3 days) after unprotected sex. Ella® is FDA approved for use up to 120 hours (5 days) after unprotected sex.

Most research shows that overall, ella® is more effective than Plan B® for most women. ella® is equally effective throughout the 5 days after unprotected sex, but Plan B® is less effective with time (ex. more effective at 24 hours than after 48 hours).

How long after unprotected sex can I take them?

Plan B® is more effective the sooner that you take it, so the longer you wait, the less likely it is to work. Ella® has been shown to work for up to 5 days after unprotected sex and is not less effective with time.

Do you offer overnight delivery?

Unfortunately, we do not offer overnight delivery. In order to make sure that you are able to get emergency contraceptives as quickly as possible, we will send the prescription to a local pharmacy of your choice for you to pick up.

Can you send it to my local pharmacy?

Yes. When we call in a prescription for emergency contraception to a pharmacy it is usually processed the same day that we order it. Some pharmacies do not reliably stock ella®, so if you are requesting this pill, we recommend that you call your pharmacy to make sure they have it available.

If you did not have unprotected sex and just want to have emergency contraceptives on hand, just in case, we can deliver these directly to you.
