Emergency Contraception

Ella and Plan B 

Both Ella and generic Plan B are available at reduced cost at the Student Health Center.  Ella can be used up to five days after unprotected sex; Plan B, up to three days.  Ella works better than Plan B if your body mass index (BMI) is more than 25.

Copper IUD

The most effective emergency contraceptive, the copper IUD, can be used up to five days after unprotected sex.  If you have Kaiser WA insurance, the copper IUD could be an option at the Student Health Center.  Mount Baker Planned Parenthood also provides emergency contraception copper IUDs; call their clinic at (360) 734-9095 to check for available appointments.  Be specific that you need the IUD for emergency contraception.
