Emergency contraception: the back-up plan

It just makes sense to have EC in my home if I'm going to be sexually active.

As reliable as contraception is, there are times when birth control doesn’t work. Like every once in a while when we use a method incorrectly. Or on a rare occasion when a condom breaks. And sometimes—especially when partying—we forget to use anything at all. All of these times scream out: Emergency contraception NOW!
