EMERGENCY CONTRACEPTION

Q:What is emergency contraception? 
A: It's a pill you can take after you  have unprotected sex that can reduce your chances of getting pregnant if taken within the next 5 days. Now, it's a whole lot more effective in the first couple of days, so it's best to take it as soon as possible.
 

Q: Where can I get it and it's expensive, right?
A:
You can get it at Planned Parenthood, and at some pharmacies. And it's not expensive!

Emergency Contraception costs $30.00 at Planned Parenthood in Waco.
BE PREPARED!  - Buy 2, have one for a friend or for your medicine cabinet.....2/$50

Q: Is Emergency Contraception the same thing as the abortion pill, that RU-486 stuff?
A:
Nope. EC contains the same hormones that are in regular birth control pills. If you're already pregnant, EC won't cause you to have an abortion.
 

Q: Where can I get more information?
A:
At http://ec.princeton.edu or you can call us at 254-759-5777 ex. 230.
