Why should I obtain emergency contraception before I need it?


Because Emergency Contraception must be used as soon as possible after unprotected sex, it is important to have it readily available.  Women Help Women can help women get access to either 6 or 13 EC pills – so that women can protect themselves, their friends and their family.  If a woman keeps Emergency Contraception in her medicine cabinet, she is prepared. The sooner the women uses EC the more effective it will be. Emergency Contraception pills do not expire for 18-24 months.
