Welcome to Back Up Your Birth Control

Back Up Your Birth Control (BUYBC) is a national campaign to expand access to emergency contraception (EC) by increasing education and awareness. Each year, a partnership of leading advocacy organizations, service providers, and other community stakeholders conduct educational outreach and offer free services, culminating in the Day of Action.

The 10th annual Back Up Your Birth Control Day of Action will be on Wednesday, March 30, 2011. Check back soon for more information.

** As of December 1, 2010, a new form of EC, ella, is available by prescription only. ella is approved for up to 120 hours (five days) after unprotected sex and is equally effective for all five days. More information coming soon. **

The Back Up Your Birth Control Campaign is a partnership of leading national advocacy organizations, service providers, and community stakeholders across the country that conduct grassroots organizing, provider and public education, and policy debates, which take place throughout the year, and culminate on our annual springtime Day of Action. This campaign is coordinated by the National Institute for Reproductive Health.
