Where can you get emergency contraception?

ANSWER

Emergency contraceptive pills (ECPs) are available at Planned Parenthood, college, public, and women's health centers, private doctors, and some hospital emergency rooms.

Some doctors will prescribe ECPs over the phone and call the prescription in to a pharmacy. Plan B One-Step is available at pharmacies without a prescription.
