Read our Birth Control FAQ for the most frequently asked questions about birth control pills.
Emergency contraception (ECP or the morning after pill) is available on-site, and an appointment with the nurse practitioner is required in order for ECP to be dispensed. It is important to take the ECP within the first 72 hours for optimal effectiveness. ECP is now also available without a prescription at local pharmacies. The cost of ECP is higher at pharmacies, but is an option when the Wellness Center is closed and you are not to wafely wait until it reopens.
