Morning After Pill
Before you take the morning after pill, be sure you understand what it is, how it works, and what will be taking place in your body. We can help you to understand this information.
The morning after pill, sold over the counter as Plan B One Step® and Next Choice, is intended to be taken as soon as possible within the first 72 hours after unprotected sex to prevent pregnancy. But there are many factors to consider.
– Does it work?
-What are the risks?
– How will it affect me?
– What if I am already pregnant?
– Am I at risk for an STD?
– What if I’ve taken it before and need it again?
These are great questions to ask and Free Abortion Alternatives offers real help and real answers. All our services are free and confidential. Make an appointment and talk to us.

Signs of Pregnancy
Things to think about
- When was your last period?
- What are your symptoms?
- How long have you experienced your symptoms?
- Have you taken a medical-quality pregnancy test?
- Need someone to talk to?
How Many Weeks?
If you are pregnant, the first question to answer is how far along are you? You will need to know the first day of your last period even though conception could have been several days after your period ended. Ovulation usually occurs in the middle of a 28 day cycle – or about 14 days after the first day of your last period. If you were sexually active around the time of ovulation, it’s possible to become pregnant.
