Emergency Contraception:

What is Emergency Contraception?

  • Emergency contraception, often called the “morning after pill”, is used to prevent pregnancy prior to it occurring. It is used to prevent an egg from being released/preventing sperm from fertilizing an egg.
  • The type of emergency contraception offered by Hope Clinic is most effective when taken within 72 hours of unprotected/under-protected intercourse. The sooner it is taken, the more effective it is.
  • Emergency contraception is NOT an abortion pill. It prevents pregnancy. Medication/pill abortion ends an established pregnancy. If you are already pregnant and seeking to end a pregnancy with medication, please visit our Medication Abortion page for more information.

Our friends over at Midwest Access Coalition also have a program for helping people get Emergency Contraception when they need it free of charge. Request an Emergency Contraception Kit at

Get it before you need it! Emergency contraception is available on Amazon for a low price! You can also buy a pack of 6 tablets on Amazon for the price of 1 at a pharmacy. You can purchase emergency contraception from Hope Clinic for $30, less than the cost of most pharmacies!
