Emergency Contraception

Emergency Contraception Pills (ECP) known as Plan B are available at Health Services at a reduced fee as a way to reduce your risk of pregnancy after having unprotected sex. It is not intended for regular use, but should be used in situations where:

  • you had sex without birth control and do not want to become pregnant
  • the condom broke

The key factor is time! Emergency contraception is safe and most effective when taken within 72 hours after unprotected sex.

If Health Services is closed and you don't feel you can wait, or waiting will put you beyond the 72 hour window, you may:

  • purchase ECP over-the-counter at most pharmacies, or
  • call 607-432-2250 to be connected to the nearest Family Planning of South Central New York health center, or
  • call or visit O'Connor Hospital Emergency Services, Delhi, NY, 607-746-0300
