Emergency Contraception for Teens

You can get free emergency contraception, also known as Plan B or the morning-after pill, at clinics for teens. These pills can prevent pregnancy after unprotected sex or birth control failure. You can get sexual health services at a clinic without your parents' permission or knowledge. Services are confidential, free or very low-cost, and open to all. You will be helped regardless of your immigration status.

If you are 15 or over, you can also buy emergency contraception at a drug store. A pilot program in some City public high schools offers emergency contraception and other reproductive health services.
