Plan B Update

2007 September 05

It seems that everywhere I go lately everyone wants to know about ECP or emergency contraception. We have a great section on our site which answers many questions that I get asked, “click here”:https://www.islandsexualhealth.org/ec/

Due to recent changes to the BC pharmacy schedule, Plan B is now available to individuals who would like to purchase Plan B in advance to have it at home so it’s easily available for use. It’s also available to men who want to purchase it for their female partners!! Call us at 592-3479 for more information.

Plan B can also be purchased at your local pharmacy without paying the $25 consultation fee previously charged. Prices will still vary depending on the pharmacy.

Remember that Plan B is your backup contraception plan and it doesn’t offer any STI protection so you will need to contine with STI testing if necessary!
