Emergency Contraception

What is Plan B? Plan B One-Step is intended to prevent pregnancy after contraceptive failure or unprotected intercourse. It is recommended to be taken within 72 hours of intercourse. Plan B One-Step does not require a prescription, and will not disrupt an implanted pregnancy. It should not be used as a substitute for regular birth control, because it isn’t as effective.

What is Ella? Ella (ulipristal) is an emergency contraceptive for use within 5 days of unprotected sex or contraceptive failure. It is to be used only once during a menstrual cycle. If used as directed, Ella is reported to reduce the chance of pregnancy but is not effective in every case. Ella may reduce the chance of pregnancy by preventing or postponing ovulation. It also may work by preventing an embryo from implanting in the uterus, which is a form of early abortion.

Why Do I Need an Ultrasound?

An ultrasound is the only method that can 100% confirm a pregnancy and determine how far along you are.

If you are considering abortion, it is very important that you first have an ultrasound to see if the pregnancy is viable. Abortion costs vary depending on how far along you are, which can also only be verified through a diagnostic ultrasound.
