Progestin for Emergency Contraception
What To Think About
Some pharmacists refuse to fill emergency contraception prescriptions based on their personal beliefs. If this happens to you, ask for the location of a pharmacist who will fill the prescription, or contact:
- The Emergency Contraception website http://ec.princeton.edu.
- The Planned Parenthood clinic nearest you, or call 1-800-230-PLAN (1-800-230-7526).
Emergency contraception use is not recommended if you know or suspect you are already pregnant. If you may already be pregnant, see your doctor.
If hormonal emergency contraception does not work and a pregnancy develops and grows, there is no known risk to the embryo.Reference 2
