Emergency Contraception (EC), also known as the morning-after pill, can be started up until 120 hours after intercourse. Emergency Contraception is available through Student Health Service and from drugstores and health centers without a prescription for people age 17 and older. Emergency Contraception should ideally be taken within 3 days of intercourse (72 hours) but can be taken up to 5 days afterward (120 hours). EC will also be provided to anyone receiving a medical rape examination at the Philadelphia Sexual Assault Response Center (PSARC). Click here for more information about Emergency Contraception.
