Emergency Contraception is a hormonal emergency birth control method used to delay ovulation to reduce the risk of a pregnancy. The hormones delay ovulation – the process when the ovaries release an egg – and thicken cervical mucus. Emergency Contraception 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.
People of all ages can get Emergency Contraception over-the-counter at most pharmacies. In Colorado there is no age restriction to buy Emergency Contraception. It is usually between $40-$60 at these locations.
