What you need to know:

Is this the “Morning After Pill?”

Emergency contraception pills are often called the “the morning after pill.” Emergency contraception pills can help prevent pregnancy after birth control failure or unprotected sex. It is a back up method of preventing pregnancy and should not be used as regular birth control.

Can I still prevent pregnancy?

Yes, you may still be able to prevent a pregnancy if the sexual encounter was within the past 72 hours (3 days). The sooner you take emergency contraception, the better it works.

Do I need a prescription?

No. Next Choice One Dose® is available Over-the-Counter for women 17 years of age and older.

Is this the “Abortion Pill?”

No, emergency contraception is not the “abortion pill.” It will not work if you are already pregnant.
