YOU MAY WALK IN DURING REGULAR BUSINESS HOURS TO PURCHASE THE "MORNING AFTER PILL" AT OUR RECEPTION WINDOW. Morning After Pill (emergency contraception) - Is a second chance to prevent pregnancy.

Emergency contraception, also known as the "morning after pill" or “plan B”, is a safe and effective way to prevent pregnancy after unprotected sex or when birth control fails. Emergency contraception pills are a large dose of hormones that form a hostile environment for the egg to fertilize. The morning after pill prevents pregnancy by temporarily stopping the release of an egg from a woman’s ovary; they may also prevent a fertilized egg from attaching to the uterus.

Within 120 hours after unprotected vaginal intercourse you have a 75% chance of avoiding pregnancy with emergency contraception. However, the chances of avoiding pregnancy increase to 89% within 24 hours of unprotected sex. The sooner the pills are taken, the more effective they will be in preventing pregnancy. The "morning after pill" will not work if you are already pregnant. Click Here for more information.
