The reversal of Roe v. Wade has left some scrambling to prepare for the possibility of limits on contraception, including restricted access to Plan B — a popular pill for emergency contraception.

Abortions are already banned in seven states, and a handful of hospitals in such states have announced that they are unable to continue providing patients with contraceptives like Plan B.

Some have started to “stockpile” Plan B and birth control, in case they become hard to access. Others have considered a change from prescription pills to long-lasting forms of contraception like IUDs, implants, and even sterilization. A few have contemplated celibacy.
