From the brochure online:

ECPs ECPs are given in two doses of hormonal pills. Some ECPs are "combination pills" with estrogen and progestin synthetic hormones like the ones a woman's body makes. Others are progestin-only.

Some clinicians review your medical history before they prescribe ECP. Some may want
you to give informed consent by signature or over the telephone.

mergency contraception is available at Planned Parenthood, college, public, and
women's health centers; private doctors; and hospital emergency rooms unless they
are affiliated with religions that oppose the use of birth control.

Some clinics and clinicians will prescribe ECPs over the phone and call the prescription
in to a pharmacy. ECPs are available directly from some pharmacists in Washington

You can get the names and phone numbers of five emergency contraception providers nearest you by calling, toll-free, the emergency contraception hotline 1-888-NOT-2-LATE. Or contact the nearest Planned Parenthood health center at 1-800-230-PLAN.

Please call the EC hotline or Planned Parenthood and get information from them. It's a free call, and they're trained to help you.
