We are unable to mail emergency contraception. There are now some online services that mail out birth control but because Plan B is most effective within the first three days after unprotected sex and requires a prescription to purchase it in Saskatchewan, you would need to see a pharmacist as soon as possible. It’s unfortunate that sexual health services in small towns can be limited and we wish there were easier options for people. Read more! “Do you mail emergency contraception? I’m in a small town and have no way of getting it.”

Plan B can be very effective at preventing pregnancy, especially when taken as soon as possible, so your chances of avoiding pregnancy are good. Taking the pill within the same hour everyday makes it most effective so an app or alarm on your phone are good reminders. Using condoms as well would make pregnancy very unlikely and protect you from most STIs.

If you are already pregnant, Plan B will not end the pregnancy because it is not an abortion pill.

Plan B is a pill that can be taken up to 5 days after unprotected penis-in-vagina sex to prevent pregnancy from happening. It is the most effective when taken as soon as possible.

Mifegymiso is the abortion pill that can be taken up to nine weeks of pregnancy. Read more! “If I think I’m pregnant, can I take Plan B to end the pregnancy?”

Birth control pills are said to be 99.7% effective with perfect use (using them around the same time every day). If your partner has forgotten to take them recently, it would be a good idea to get Plan B.  Otherwise, your chances of pregnancy are incredibly low and you shouldn’t need Plan B.

If you are unsure, you can always give us a call and ask to speak with a nurse. Read more! “I had sex with my girlfriend and the condom broke but she’s on the pill. Do we need Plan B?”

We sell Plan B for $15 (click here for our birth control prices). Our clinic is youth-friendly so we will sell it to anyone who needs it, at any age. You don’t need a parent or guardian with you.

At Planned Parenthood Regina, you do not. We prefer that you have your health card number but can issue you a temporary one so that you can still access our services.

To purchase Plan B from pharmacies in Saskatchewan, a health card is required.

 

No, you can come in anytime we are open to pick it up. Our receptionist will get you to fill out a form, charge $15 and then our nurse will see you to give you the pill. You may have to wait for the nurse to be available if they are in an appointment with someone else.
