    Emergency contraception pills can be purchased over-the-counter. In most stores, they are found near the pharmacy. There is not an age requirement for a person to purchase this medicine. The cost of emergency contraception can range in price from $35 to $60.  Are there other types of emergency contraception besides pills?  Other than pills, there’s also a non-hormonal intrauterine device (IUD) called ParaGard.  An IUD is a T-shaped device that is placed inside the uterus and can last up to 10 years as contraception. The ParaGard IUD is one of the most effective form of countries emergency contraception and can prevent pregnancy up to five days after unprotected sex. To get an IUD requires an office visit with a medical professional.
