Emergency contraception

Emergency contraception (EC/MAP) is a way to reduce your risk of pregnancy after having unprotected sex. It is not intended to be used as a regular birth control method.

  • Available for purchase at the Decker Student Health Services Center's front office – pricing information available here
  • Can also be purchased over the counter at a local pharmacy

Menstrual care products and safer sex kits can also be ordered for free online through the Healthy Campus Initiative website.

Pregnancy care

The Decker Student Health Services Center is committed to providing all options to our students who find themselves with an unplanned pregnancy.  Students will be supported in whatever decision they make regarding the ongoing care of their pregnancy, whether they wish to be referred for obstetrical care, to be referred for adoption counseling, or to be referred for pregnancy termination services.
