Purchase EC or get a prescription for ella.

These organizations and companies sell EC online or in person. If you're able, please consider purchasing EC. This allows the resources for free Plan B and other resources to reach more people who can't afford it on their own.

Plan B and generic versions are available at retail outlets like Target and Walmart or pharmacies like Walgreens and CVS. It's also available at H. E. B. pharmacies.

Request a Repro Kit!

Repro Kits include two doses of EC, two pregnancy tests, condoms, lube packets, and a pocket-sized info booklet called “the guide” to help you navigate your sexual and reproductive health decisions.

If you are able to purchase EC on your own, we encourage you to do that so that we can meet the most need in Texas.

EC is available over the counter at local drug stores and retail stores, but if you need free Plan B (or generic Plan B), use the form to request a Repro Kit. 

High demand means it may take more than 2 weeks to get a kit delivered to you. If it has been more than 2 weeks since you requested a Repro Kit, please reach out to us at ReproKit@everybodytexas.org

If you need EC right away, please contact one of the locations listed above or use our Find a Clinic map. H.E.B. pharmacies, Target, Walmart, CVS, and Walgreens sell Plan B and generic versions. You can purchase generic EC on Amazon. 

If you can afford to buy EC, please consider buying it so we can make free Plan B and generic Plan B available for more folks who can't afford it. 

Internal condoms are now available in Repro Kits by request. Internal condoms, also called female condoms, are worn inside the vagina to prevent pregnancy. Use the form below and select if you would like an internal condom included in your Repro Kit.

Got questions about EC? We've got answers.

  • What is emergency contraception (EC)?

    Emergency contraception pills (also known as the morning after pill) like Plan B, Econtra, ella, My Way, and Preventeza can be used to prevent pregnancy following unprotected sex or if your birth control method fails, such as a condom breaking/slipping off or forgetting to take a birth control pill.

    Intrauterine devices or IUDs can also be used as EC if you are able to have one placed by a clinical provider within 5 days of unprotected sex.

    EC that you can buy at a pharmacy or drug store that does not require a prescription is called "over-the-counter" or OTC EC. Brands like Plan B, Econtra, My Way, and Preventeza are available without a prescription. You do need a prescription for ella.

  • Are EC pills the same as medical abortion pills?

    No, EC cannot cause an abortion. 

    EC works to prevent pregnancy before it occurs. If you are already pregnant, EC will not work. And if you take EC before you know you’re pregnant, it won’t hurt you or the pregnancy.

  • How effective is EC?

    For all EC pills, the sooner you take them after unprotected sex, the more effective they are. EC should be taken within 3-5 days (72-120 hours) of unprotected sex, depending on the brand.

    Your weight/BMI (body mass index) may impact how effective EC is for you. If your BMI is more than 25, over-the-counter EC pills like Plan B or like the one in your kit may be less effective. Evidence has shown that taking 2 pills (2 doses) of this EC is safe and can be more effective. ella, which is prescription-only emergency contraception, is effective up to a BMI of 34. IUDs are the only emergency contraception options where effectiveness is not impacted by your weight.

    You can calculate your BMI here: Adult BMI Calculator | Healthy Weight, Nutrition, and Physical Activity | CDC. If you have questions about what EC is right for you, you should consult with a medical provider.

  • Do I need a prescription for EC?

    No, over-the-counter EC does not require a prescription to purchase. This includes brands like Plan B, Econtra, My Way, Preventeza, and others. 

    However, ella is only available with a prescription and an IUD must be inserted by a medical provider. 

    To find a Title X provider to prescribe ella or help you get an IUD click here. 

  • Where can I find EC?

    You can purchase over-the-counter EC pills at pharmacies, like CVS and Walgreens, on Amazon, at your local healthcare or Title X clinic, and at stores like Target and Walmart. You might want to call ahead to make sure they have it in stock. You can also get a prescription for ella through birth control apps like Nurx

    To find a Title X provider to prescribe ella or help you get an IUD click here.

    You can find information on our website for organizations that can deliver or mail EC to you for free in the list earlier on this page.

    We recommend you get EC before you need it so you have quick access to it when you do.

  • Can I get EC for my partner?

    Yes, you can! People who are not able to become pregnant can purchase EC for their partners who are. EC should be taken by the partner who can get pregnant.

  • Do I have to be 18 or older to get EC?

    No. There is no age requirement to get over-the-counter EC. People of any age or gender can purchase over-the-counter EC pills wherever they are available. For ella or an IUD, people under 18 can access them confidentially at Title X (ten) clinics across Texas.

    You can use our Clinic Locator to find a Title X clinic near you.
