Learn about Emergency Contraception

Is this the same as an abortion pill?
Drop down F.A.Q. toggle button

No - emergency contraceptive pills do not cause an abortion, or terminate pregnancy. They work by delaying ovulation. Emergency contraception is effective only before a pregnancy is established. It does not increase risk to an established pregnancy or harm a developing embryo.

Why do I need a prescription for My Way if it’s available over the counter?
Drop down F.A.Q. toggle button

While My Way is available without a prescription, that unfortunately does not mean it’s accessible for all patients. Many pharmacies place emergency contraception in locked enclosures or behind the counter. For patients concerned about cost, receiving a prescription can allow them to pay using their insurance. We’re committed to making emergency contraception more easily accessible for all our patients, including those who may experience these barriers.

You deserve affordable, accessible, and personalized care for your reproductive health. We’ve made this process discreet and convenient so you can access emergency contraception when you need it.
