That is wonderful that you have an open relationship with your daughter in which she feels like you are a trusted and non-judgmental source of support. There are multiple options for emergency contraction. Plan B One-Step is a pill available at the pharmacy without a prescription and can be used up to 3 days from last intercourse. Ella is a pill available at the pharmacy by prescription and can be used up to 5 days from last intercourse. The copper intrauterine device (IUD) is placed in the doctor’s office up to 5 days from last intercourse.

My daughter came to me worried she might be pregnant! I knew she was having sex and I’ve talked with her about using condoms, however the condom broke. I have no experience with emergency contraception.
