"Emergency contraception is a safe and effective way to prevent pregnancy and a great backup even if you’re on a birth control method. If you're having sex, EC should be in your medicine cabinet."

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.

  • 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 may also determine how effective EC is for you. If your BMI is more than 25, over-the-counter EC pills may be less 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. 

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

  • 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 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.

    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.
