We offer a three step process for emergency contraception. You must come in within 72 hours of unprotected intercourse. We will do a pregnancy test to verify you are not already pregnant. We then will do a brief health history and will give the first pill. 12 hours after you have taken the first pill, you will take your 2nd pill. After two weeks, we will give you a second pregnancy test to verify that the procedure was a success.
