EC Hotline adds number, Web site now in Spanish

Access to information on emergency contraception just got easier: A second toll-free telephone number has been added, and the Emergency Contraception (EC) World Wide Web site is now available in Spanish.

The additional EC Hotline number is (888) NOT-2-LATE, an easy-to-remember addition to the original number, (800) 584-9911. English and Spanish information can be accessed from the EC Web site at Both the telephone numbers and the Web site provide consumer information on emergency contraceptive pills and other forms of emergency contraception. The Hotline gained national exposure in April with a news segment aired by many NBC stations following the popular television show "ER." The segment included information on emergency contraceptive pills in conjunction with the show’s portrayal of a woman who received emergency contraception following a date rape.
