Can men buy EC?

Yes - women AND men of any age can now buy Plan B One-Step directly on the shelf (check the family planning aisle) without having to show ID. Soon, the generic one-pill forms of EC (Next Choice One Dose and My Way) will also be available on the shelf for women AND men, but you have to be 17 or older and show ID to prove your age. The two-pill generic form of EC (Levonorgestrel Tablets) is also available to women AND men, but it's still held behind the pharmacy counter, and you have to be 17 or older. ella is available to women by prescription only, regardless of age.
