Emergency Contraception

Emergency contraception, aka “the morning after pill” is a safe and effective way to prevent pregnancy up to 5 days after unprotected sex.


Did you have unprotected sex? Did your regular birth control fail? Ella is here to help! Ella is a prescription emergency contraception pill that helps prevent pregnancy. Women are encouraged to take Ella as soon as possible after unsafe sex or after your traditional birth control fails. Ella can be effective up to five days (120 hours) after unprotected sex. The risk of Ella include potential nausea and becoming less effective.

We offer Ella and more than 50 other birth control options to help women find what they need.

Plan B One-Step

Plan B One-Step (also called the morning-after pill) is an emergency contraceptive pill that’s used to prevent pregnancy when your normal method of birth control fails. If you use a condom and it slips off or breaks, for example, Plan B One-Step can help. Our experts can help you get Plan B One-Step with the highest levels of privacy and discretion.

Plan B One-Step uses a measured dose of levonorgestrel (which is in the same class as the hormone “progestin” that’s found in birth control pills) to prevent or delay ovulation, and also to interfere with fertilization and the egg attaching itself to the uterus. Plan B is a great help for many women, but shouldn’t be taken if you are allergic to levonorgestrel or if you already think you might be pregnant.

My Way

My Way is an emergency contraceptive you can take if you had unprotected sex and did not use another form of birth control. While we don’t carry this single-dose pill at Nurx™, you can grab it without a prescription at your local pharmacy.
