Need Emergency Contraception?
West Alabama Women’s Center offers both non-prescription and prescription forms of emergency contraception. Talk to us about levonorgestrel (Plan B) or ulipristal (Ella).
- Levonorgestrel is effective up to three days after unprotected intercourse
- Ulipristal is effective up to five days after, and for people with higher BMIs
And of course, if you already wanted an IUD, those can be used as emergency contraception if you have one placed within 5 days of unprotected sex, too.
