  • Birth Control Pills 
  • Depo Provera (the Shot)
  • Plan B and Ella (Emergency Contraception)

Emergency Contraception

Plan B (Emergency Contraception) may prevent a pregnancy after birth control failure or unprotected sex. The sooner it is taken after unprotected sex the more effective it is at preventing pregnancy. It is available at the Student Health Services for a reduced cost. It is also available at most local pharmacies.
