Where can I get the morning after pill?

What excatly is it and is it 100% gauranteed? I just recently got my mirena removed and have not decided which type of birth control to use, so we've been using condoms. Which by the way I truely hate because at times it just ruins the moment for me, and I am a married women now. I don't need to protect my self against my husband. Anyways we had sex a few hours ago and got carried away and he ended up going inside of me. And now we are worried, my self, more than him because I am not ready for another baby. Where can I get the morning after pill and is it expensive and hard to get? Does anyone recommend a good type of birth control with little or no side affects? I got my mirena removed because of severe side affects.

  • Planned Parenthood, and if you are low income you can get it free or (at least in CA) it's $40. They encourage you to buy an extra one for just in case.

    Go for it, I used it once when my husband and I got carried away, went to the health center at my college and they gave it to me. Good luck :)

  • How about you count your days and see if you are ovulating. If you just had your period or are about to then your chances are that you could not get pregnant. Or even an ovulation kit can tell you if you are ovulating now.
    As for birth control I have liked the NuvaRing. No pills, it is a vaginal insert and you only have to put it in and take it out once a month and then forget about it. I loved it!
