Free Emergency Contraception
Whether you're an individual, organization, group, or health clinic in West Virginia, Holler Health Justice can supply you with free emergency contraception.
What is emergency contraception?
Emergency contraception (EC) can stop a pregnancy before it starts. (That means EC pills are not the same as the abortion pill.) There are four types of EC to choose from and they all work up to 5 days, or 120 hours, after unprotected sex. But use it sooner rather than later to reduce the possibility of getting pregnant.

What type of emergency contraception does Holler Health Justice provide?
We're currently providing free Preventeza Emergency Contraceptive (levonorgestrel tablet, 1.5 mg), also known as the morning-after pill, throughout West Virginia communities. Preventeza is an over-the-counter (OTC) progestin-only pill indicated for prevention of pregnancy following unprotected sex or a known or suspected contraceptive failure. Preventeza was created by the makers of Vagisil and uses the same ingredient as most other birth control pills, including Plan B One Step, Take Action, My Way, and AfterPill. Each unit contains one pill and is packaged exactly as it is for retail, with instructions and in a tamper-resistant, hard plastic blister pack.
In 2019, we dispersed over 5,000 units of emergency contraception throughout West Virginia!
