All Illinois Abortion Clinics offer Emergency Contraception by Request an Appointment or walk-ins (during center hours). Emergency Contraception is a backup plan that helps prevent pregnancy for up to 72 hours after intercourse if there was birth control failure or if birth control was not used. The only way of knowing whether the emergency contraception has worked is when a woman gets her next period, which should come at the expected time or within a week of the expected time. If the period is more than seven days late, you might be pregnant. Keep in mind that emergency contraception is less likely to work if:

A woman has unprotected sex, or contraceptive failure again in the same menstrual cycle after taking the morning after pill
A woman has already had unprotected sex or contraceptive failure earlier in her menstrual cycle
She vomited within two hours of taking the morning after pill
The emergency contraception will not work if the woman is already pregnant.

Emergency Contraception should not be confused with the Abortion Pill. It will not terminate an existing pregnancy.
