Everything you need to know to keep yourself safe

I’m not sure.

“Honestly, I’m not sure if I want to become pregnant right now.” “Is it a good time for me?” “Do I have the resources I need?”

Whether or not you want to become pregnant, it’s important that you talk to your healthcare provider and support system. You need to determine if you have the resources you need, if it’s a good time for you, and, ultimately, if you want to become pregnant within the next year. Emergency contraception is a second chance to prevent pregnancy. Take it as soon as possible after you have unprotected sex to prevent conception. You can:
  • Buy it over-the-counter at the pharmacy or store (up to 72 hours after unprotected sex)
  • Get a prescription from your healthcare provider (up to 120 hours after unprotected sex)
  • Purchase online with AfterPill
