Does Emergency Contraception Protect Me from STIs or HIV/AIDS?


Does emergency contraception protect me from STIs or HIV/AIDS?

No. Emergency contraception keeps an egg and sperm from ever meeting and can only protect against unplanned pregnancy. The best way to protect yourself from STIs and HIV/AIDS is by using a condom every time you have sex and for you both to get tested regularly.

You can get condoms pretty much anywhere on the cheap. To get tested, make an appointment at a health center.
