Although you had unprotected sex, you were prepared and took the Plan B, the morning after pill, to ensure you wouldn’t be wondering later “can I be pregnant?”. You had hoped your emergency contraception would work but it hasn’t and now you are pregnant. We can help you through this.
Plan B is claimed to be 25% to 95% effective depending on how soon you take it after having sex, according to its manufacturer. (1)
- 95% effective within 24 hours
- 85% effective 25-48 hours
- 58% effective 48-72 hours
- 25% effective after 72 hours
But that leaves the small chance it doesn’t. Perhaps giving you something to think about that you were not planning on.
If you are having any pregnancy symptoms or a positive pregnancy test after taking Plan B, we can help you think through your next steps. Our caring and supportive team will perform a lab-quality pregnancy test and help you understand all your pregnancy options.
If your pregnancy test is positive, you may qualify for a free ultrasound to verify viability, calculate pregnancy, and see if proper implantation has occurred.
If abortion is a pregnancy option for you, we will provide free pre-abortion services including ultrasound and the education required in our state prior to any abortion procedure.
