Emergency Contraception

Emergency Contraception (also called the Morning After Pill/Plan B)

Emergency Contraception is a backup birth control method that can be used after unprotected intercourse or when other methods of contraception fail. It is most effective if taken immediately after unprotected intercourse has occurred. If taken within 72 hours of unprotected intercourse, studies show that pregnancy can be reduced by 89%, and while the percentage decreases over time, Emergency Contraception can be effective up to 120 hours after unprotected intercourse.

Emergency Contraception is available at Brady Health. Call or use the online patient portal to schedule an appointment. Garrett Couny Health Department also offers this service. Contact them @ 301-334-7770.

If the Brady Health Center is closed, you may purchase Emergency Contraception over the counter at the pharmacy (ask the pharmacist). See After Hours, Weekend and Urgent Care for local pharmacies.
