Roughly half of all pregnancies in the U.S. are unintended, and one in nine women have used emergency contraception (EC) at least once in their lifetime. At some point, you or your partner may have to use emergency contraception. We get it, accidents happen, so here’s what you need to know about it.
Emergency contraception is a safe way to prevent pregnancy and can be used up to five days after unprotected sex. Emergency contraception like the copper IUD and morning-after pill stop sperm from meeting the egg.
The birth control pill is safe and simple to use. Not to mention, it can clear up acne and make your periods lighter. Watch this cute, short video to learn more about The Pill!
Every year, Planned Parenthood provides high-quality, affordable and compassionate care to 2.7 million women, men and young people. There is no organization that does more than we do to provide and advocate for family planning, preventive care and sex education. As the most trusted nonprofit, reproductive health care provider in the country, nothing is more important than the health and safety of our patients.
Many of our supporters are equally passionate about the work we do in their communities and have chosen to share their experiences. This is a story from a high school student and Planned Parenthood volunteer named Isabel who wanted to share her experience as a patient so others can understand the importance of creating safe spaces for reproductive care.
