Considering Abortion

Emergency Contraception

You may have heard emergency contraception referred to as the Morning-After Pill, or brand names such as Plan B One-Step®and ella.® Emergency contraception is a term used for drugs taken after sex with the intent to prevent pregnancy. There are different brands of emergency contraception available, but the most common in America are Plan B One-Step and ella. If you have questions regarding emergency contraception, you can schedule an appointment with one of our peer counselors to discuss your questions and concerns.

You can call us to discuss your situation with our trained staff. All our peer counseling services are free and confidential, so you have nothing to lose.


Care Net Pregnancy Center of Central Texas offers consultations and accurate information about all emergency contraceptives; however, we do not offer or refer for abortion services.  The information presented on this website is intended for general education purposes only and should not be relied upon as a substitute for professional counseling and/or medical advice.
