Â Â Friday was a great day! We were in Â Yonkers educating people about Plan B which is a high dose of birth control that can stop a Â Â woman from becoming pregnant if taken within 5 days of unprotected sex. It is more effective the sooner you take it. Â If you take it Â within 3 days, it is 89% effective.
Â Â It is also called EC (emergency contraception) or the morning-after pill. Our blog on Plan B which tells you, among other things, Â which pharmacies in Westchester stock Plan B, can be found at:Â OOPS Plan B Blog
Â Â Karen Carroll-former coordinator of Westchester’s SANE program, Julie Frauenfelder of Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention and Services Program, and Yonkers City Council President Chuck Lesnick joined us in a call for education about Plan B.Â The Journal News and Channel 12 covered the Press Conference.
Â Â Saturday we will be at the Yonkers Library.
