Emergency Contraception

Trust Women Seattle Clinic is proud to offer a variety of reproductive health care at our clinic in Seattle, Washington.

The Trust Women Seattle Clinic provides emergency contraception at a low price with no appointment or prescription necessary. Emergency contraception should not be relied on as your primary form of birth control. We would be glad to talk to you about everyday options. However, if you have unprotected sex, the “morning-after” pill is the absolute quickest and easiest option and is available without a prescription.

We offer a single dose 1.5 mg (levonorgestrel) tablet for $25 or two for $40. If you purchase more than one, they should not be taken simultaneously. 

Emergency contraception is NOT the same as the abortion pill and will not work to terminate a pre-existing pregnancy.

If you have become pregnant and are interested in additional options such as medication abortion (the abortion pill), please click here.

Emergency contraception is to be used to prevent pregnancy after you have experienced birth control failure (e.g., broken condom) or unprotected sex. It is a progestin hormone that works to prevent pregnancy by stopping the release of an egg (ovulation) and changing the womb and cervical mucus to decrease the chance for an egg to meet sperm (fertilization) or become attached to the wall of the womb (implantation).

Use of this medication will not stop an existing pregnancy or protect you against any sexually transmitted diseases (e.g., HIV, gonorrhea or chlamydia).

This birth control medication may not work well in women who weigh over a certain amount (for example, greater than 164 pounds or 74 kilograms). Please talk to your doctor for more details and to see if this medication is the right choice for you.

This medication should never be used as a regular form of birth control.
