Will ECPs protect my spouse from sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)?

Will ECPs protect my spouse from sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)?


No. ECPs can only keep your spouse from becoming pregnant. It is recommended by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services to always use condoms to lower the risk of getting a sexually transmitted disease.
