Worried about an unplanned pregnancy? We can help.

Emergency contraception (the morning after pill) can help prevent pregnancy if you’ve had unprotected sex — for whatever reason. MFHS can help you access EC regardless of your ability to pay, and we accept a variety of insurance plans.

Our staff are here to answer your questions and help you choose the right emergency contraception for you and develop a plan for your reproductive health.

MFHS offers 2 types of emergency contraception, and our healthcare providers will help you find the right method for you, since these methods can require a prescription.

  • Plan B® (levonorgestrel) is available in most pharmacies without a prescription. It is effective up to three days after unprotected sex and is almost 90% effective for women who weight up to 165 lbs.
  • Ella® (ulipristal acetate) is another very effective type of morning-after pill and remains as effective in people weighing up to 195 lb. (88.4 kg). This pill requires a prescription.

MFHS offers confidential and comprehensive reproductive health services across our community, and no one is ever turned away based on their ability to pay. Call us today at 570-961-5550 to learn more and make an appointment. Walk-in appointments are also available at our Circle of Care Scranton location.
