Emergency Contraception

Emergency Contraception

"Just a short note to say, "Thank You" for your professional yet compassionate care. You certainly do everything possible to make the best of an unpleasant situation. When I look at my happy, healthy, 4 month old daughter I know that we made the right decision in not having another baby right now." -- Donna

Also known as the "Morning After Treatment," Emergency Contraception using Plan B One Step.

We offer the generic brand for $30 -- a substantial savings over  pharmacy prices.

Emergency Contraception is most effective in the first 12-24 hours after unprotected intercourse, but may be effective up to 120 hours.  "

Sooner, better"
  It's a good idea to keep a pack on hand. There is a theoretical success rate of about 85%, although results cannot be guaranteed.

Prescriptions for the newer Emergency Contraception, Ella are also available from Dr. Cousins. 

A recent study in Europe has cast doubt on whether Plan B is effective for overweight women. It may be that Ella will work better. This continues to be studied.

You can walk-in during business hours to obtain the emergency contraception.
