When birth control fails or is not used for any reason, Plan B can protect you from an unwanted pregnancy. Plan B can be taken up to 5 days after unprotected intercourse, but is most effective within the first 72 hours. Plan B is also called Emergency Contraception, EC, ECT, or the Morning After Pill.
The Health Center for Women at Northland Family Planning is here for your family planning and birth control needs. We will discuss all options available to you and help you choose what best fits your unique lifestyle. Several of the methods we prescribe for birth control are available to you through our on-site prescription services, often for much less than you would pay at a retail pharmacy.
Our Health Center for Women focuses on providing the highest quality gynecological care. We know that many women prefer to speak with other women on the subjects of birth control, sexual protection, sexually transmitted infections, and other lifestyle concerns. That is why our team is made up of exceptional female Nurse Practitioners who specialize in women's health. Not only do they provide high-quality medical care, they are also non-judgemental, kind women who believe offering a safe space for patients to be open and honest allows them to give the best in patient care.
Whether our patients want to test because they have symptoms of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) or are simply being responsible and getting a check up before engaging in sexual activity with a new partner, the Health Center for Women can help. We always conduct our tests and results in a respectful and confidential manner. There are several STIs we test for, including genital warts, HPV, herpes, and chlamidya.
