Emergency Contraception

Emergency contraception is a form of backup birth control a woman can take after she has unprotected sex. It is also called Plan B, The Morning-After-Pill or EC. EC works by covering the egg in a protective coating that prevents any sperm from getting inside and fertilizing it. EC can also prevent the egg from leaving the ovary or traveling to the uterus.
