Participating Planned Parenthood health centers across the country will distribute free emergency contraception (EC) to women and men 18 and older tomorrow, Wednesday, December 6. EC lowers the risk of pregnancy when taken within 120 hours of intercourse, however the sooner EC is taken, the lower the risk of pregnancy. If EC is taken within 24 hours of intercourse, it can reduce the risk of pregnancy by up to 95 percent.
The Food and Drug Administration approved EC for non-prescription distribution earlier in August for women 18 and older.
BE PREPARED Back up your birth control! Have EC on hand for an emergency. Visit www.ppfa.org or call 1-800-230-PLAN to find the closest Planned Parenthood health center distributing free EC tomorrow
