Emergency Contraception

 

Emergency Contraception

Emergency Contraception is a medication which can be given to prevent pregnancy. To be effective, emergency contraception must be given within 72 hours of the assault. Emergency Contraception is not a form of abortion. It is a heavy dose of normal birth control pills. Hospitals are required to provide information on emergency contraception. Rape crisis center advocates can also provide information on emergency contraception.
