Emergency contraception (EC) is known as the morning-after pill. There are different brands available: Plan B, Next Choice and Ella. It can prevent pregnancy up to 5 days after unprotected sex. Be prepared, request EC from your clinic along with your regular birth control method.

EC is available at most clinics and some pharmacies. www.not-2-late.com lists local clinics & pharmacies that provide EC.

EC is FREE for those with a prescription and an up-to-date Family PACT or Medi-Cal card. For those paying cash, cost will vary. As of June 30, 2013, a prescription is required for those less than 17 years to obtain EC but it is likely that new rules will go into effect later this year. Check with your pharmacy.
