Obtaining Emergency Contraception
Emergency contraception can be obtained from many private doctors; college, public, and women’s health centers; Planned Parenthood centers; and in many hospital emergency departments. Obtaining emergency contraception quickly is important because the sooner it is used, the more effective it is. A hospital emergency department may provide emergency contraception if you are unable to reach your health care provider or if you have been sexually assaulted. IUDs should only be inserted and removed by medical professionals. Contact your health care provider for an appointment. For a list of providers of emergency contraception, you can call 888-NOT-2-LATE, or for Spanish, 866-en-3-dias.
