At ERC, you will receive a thorough exam and review of your options, which include the pros and cons so that you can make an informed choice. Once you have made your decision, you will receive an explanation as to how to use your chosen method of birth control.
ERC offers the following birth control methods:
- Vaginal ring (NuvaRing)
- Emergency Contraceptive Pills (Plan B)
Each of these birth control methods is reversible. Using reversible birth control doesn’t affect your long-term fertility. These methods are best for women planning future pregnancies.
ERC welcomes all clients, regardless of their ability to pay. We accept self-pay, private and public insurance. For those who are uninsured, we can help you determine whether you qualify for financial assistance, based on the ability to pay.
Plan B is available for women who have had unprotected sex within the last 72 to 120 hours. It can prevent pregnancy after having a contraception failure. The sooner Plan B is taken, the more effective it is. Plan B is Levonorgestrel 0.75mg. It prevents fertilization and implantation. It will not work once implantation has begun. Plan B is not the abortion pill. It will not work if a woman is already pregnant.
