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 itâ€™s easily available for use. Itâ€™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!
