Where Can You Buy the Morning-After Pill for Emergency Contraception?
I need to get the morning-after pill. I know I don't need a prescription, but where can I go to buy it? Does Planned Parenthood sell it?
In June 2013, brand-name Plan B One-Step™ became available over-the-counter (without a prescription) to women of all ages, with no sales restrictions and no identification necessary.Due to some unusual regulatory and judicial actions, the generic versions, such as Next Choice®, still have sales restrictions. These medications are available over-the-counter (OTC) for purchase by men or women age 17 and older. Because of the sales restrictions, it is likely that many pharmacies will carry only brand-name Plan B One-Step (which has no restrictions).Another option is to contact your local Planned Parenthood health center, where they can provide you with what you need.
