Emergency Contraception (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
Emergency contraception is not as effective as ongoing birth control. It should not be used routinely instead of birth control. If you are sexually active and wish to avoid pregnancy, you may wish to consider using a consistent form of birth control.
Many methods of birth control are available, both by prescription and over the counter. If you have questions about which is best for you, ask your health care provider or contact your local Planned Parenthood (800-230-PLAN).
