Emergency contraception, also known as "Plan B", "One Step", "Next Choice", or "My Way", all commonly referred to as "the morning after pill" is available over the counter at the Yale Health Pharmacy as well as most local pharmacies. Emergency contraception might be effective up to 120 hours after unprotected intercourse, but is most effective when taken as soon as possible.
After hours, call Acute Care at 203-432-0123.
If you have questions about emergency contraception, you may call Ob/Gyn (203-432-0222) or Student Health (203-432-0312) if you are a Yale student and ask to speak with one of the nurses. All information is confidential.
