Accessible Emergency Contraception Information

Here's one for harnessing the power of the internet in a time of a personal crisis. The Not-2-Late site at http://ec.princeton.edu assists users in tracking down emergency contraception by zipcode, area code, city and state, or a clickable map of the U.S. The site also provides a pretty extensive timeline of reproductive rights news as well as an FAQ about emergency contraception. It's run by the Office of Populations Research at Princeton University and by the Association of Reproductive Health Professionals. This website has no connection whatsoever with any companies that manufacture or sell emergency contraceptives.

Emergency contraceptives are methods of preventing pregnancy after unprotected sexual intercourse. Emergency contraception is often called "morning after contraception," "the morning after pill," or "the day after pill," but these terms are misleading because emergency contraception can be used before the morning after or up to five days after. Emergency contraceptives do not protect against sexually transmitted infections. Emergency contraception can be used when a condom breaks, after a sexual assault, or any time unprotected sexual intercourse occurs. Do not use emergency contraceptives as your only protection against pregnancy if you are sexually active or planning to be, because they are not as effective as any ongoing contraceptive method.
