Finding Morning After Pill Near Me

Are you searching for the morning after pill near you because you have had unprotected sex and think you may be pregnant? Women in your situation often think the morning after pill and the abortion pill are the same thing. At Support Circle’s three Bay Area medical clinics, our nurses are knowledgeable and can answer many questions regarding emergency contraception and help determine if you are pregnant.

The morning after pill is not designed to be used as a regular form of birth control but as an alternate option or in an emergency situation such as if the condom broke, missed birth control pills, miscalculation of the fertile window, in the event of a sexual assault, etc.  This form of emergency contraception is designed to be taken as soon as possible after unprotected intercourse and prior to ovulation to prevent or delay the egg from releasing and to slow down the sperm to prevent fertilization with the egg.

There are several well-known brands of hormonal emergency contraception, including “Plan B One-Step,” available over the counter without a prescription and “Ella,” which requires a prescription. The failure rate increases the more time that lapses between intercourse and taking the drug. While the phrase “morning after” is casually used to refer to these drugs, the manufacturers recommend they be taken within three to five days after unprotected intercourse.
