Emergency Contraception

Plan B One-Step, Next Choice One Dose, Next Choice, My Way, After Pill and Levonorgestrel

If you take it within 72 hours after you’ve had unprotected sex, it can reduce the risk of pregnancy by up to 89%. Studies have shown effectiveness in preventing pregnancy when taken within 5 days. It works the same way that daily birth control does, by keeping the ovaries from releasing an egg and thickening the cervical mucus. It is available over-the-counter without an age restriction. People with MaineCare need a prescription from their healthcare provider in order for their health insurance to cover the cost of the medication.

You can get Next Choice One Dose at Mabel Wadsworth Center for $25. Call today to pick it up: (207)947-5337.


Works up to 5 days after unprotected sex and doesn’t decrease in effectiveness during those 5 days. It prevents pregnancy by blocking the hormones your body needs to conceive. Ella is available by prescription.
