Emergency Contraception Options
ella® is one of the most effective forms of emergency contraception, and can be taken up to 120 hours (5 days) after unprotected sex. Studies have shown that ella® is 98.9% effective in preventing pregnancy. ella® is available by prescription only and will be covered by insurance. Without insurance, ella® may cost $40-$50, depending on the pharmacy.
My Way (levonorgestrel, generic Plan B One-Step) is approved for use up to 72 hours (3 days) after unprotected sex. Studies have shown that My Way is 75% - 87% effective. My Way is more effective the sooner it is taken. My Way can cost $11-$40 without insurance, depending on the pharmacy. Your Alpha Provider can prescribe it to you if you’re in an area with limited access or concerned about cost.
