Lets talk a little bit about emergency contraception. Plan B is a brand of emergency contraception.
Emergency contraception is a hormonal emergency birth control method used to delay ovulation in the hopes of preventing pregnancy. The hormones prevent ovulation – the process when the ovaries release an egg – and thicken cervical mucus. Plan B is not an abortion pill. It will not harm or end a pregnancy; it will only work to delay ovulation to reduce the risk of a pregnancy.
If you are 17 and under, all services at either clinic are on a free or donation basis! So this means that you can go to our Boulder or Longmont clinic and receive whatever services you need (including Emergency Contraception) for free.
If you are 18 or 19, your services might be free, or there may be a small fee based on your income. This means that Emergency Contraception may be completely free, or at a low cost.
