Are you aware that there is a “Morning After” pill? (Emergency Contraception)
I did some local research. It seems that if a female has unprotected sex or some other issue that leaves the possibility that she may become pregnant, the “Morning After” pill may not be readily available in Madison. One pharmacy said they would have to order it. This could be a real problem.
What exactly is the Morning After pill?

Did you forget to use your birth control correctly? Did the condom break, leaving you worried about becoming pregnant? If so, emergency contraception might be a good choice for you.
