Most Effective Way to Avoid Pregnancy After Unprotected Sex

Though ongoing the controversy over access to oral emergency contraceptives has called attention to an important healthcare issue, the national conversation is lacking a discussion of the most effective method of emergency contraception, the copper IUD.

The copper IUD is over 99% effective at preventing pregnancy when inserted within 5 days of unprotected sex, according to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, of which all three of our M.D.s, Dr. Skorberg, Dr. Worford, and Dr. Hayes are Fellows.

Please call us if pregnancy after unprotected sex is a concern for you. We still offer same-day appointments and evening hours.
