A Cheaper Alternative When Accidents Occur

A Cheaper Alternative When Accidents Occur

Let's face it, accidents happen. Some of us may get caught "in the moment" and make the spontaneous decision to just chance it. Sometimes even if we try to be responsible and use birth control, it can fail. Women can forget to take their birth control pills, condoms can break, and diaphragms can slide out of place. The good news is that if this happens, emergency contraception is available. Plan B One-Step (also known as the morning after pill) was FDA-approved in 2009 and has taken the place of the original Plan B. But women now have an even cheaper (and just as effective) option - Next Choice One Dose.

Next Choice One Dose is the generic equivalent to Plan B One-Step and is available behind the pharmacy counter. Those 17 and older do not need a prescription. So, if you find yourself facing an "oops" moment, you may want to consider buying Next Choice - just as effective, but it will save you some money -- and in today's economy, every little bit helps!
