WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Starting the morning after Valentine’s Day, couples across Washington, D.C. and Atlanta, Georgia can find relief knowing that their local carafem health center is offering emergency contraception (Plan-B) for just $10 in the first 72 hours following V-Day.
“Valentine’s Day is known as the holiday of love and romance. The romantic notion of getting swept away by the moment can lead to sex and intimacy, sometimes without full protection from pregnancy. Accidents happen-” says Melissa Grant, Chief Operations Officer at carafem, “If a condom breaks, a birth control pill is forgotten, or a birth control method simply didn’t work out as planned, it doesn’t necessarily mean that those involved are ready for a pregnancy.”
carafem strives to provide all people with information on health care options that exist without any lectures or judgments and to make services available at a price that is affordable.
Here’s what people should know about carafem’s Plan-B Valentine’s Day special:
