Back Up Your Birth Control: New Year's Eve biggest night of the year for birth control accidents

 Did you know that New Year's Eve is the biggest night of the year for birth control accidents? Condoms break. Pills can be forgotten - that's why this year Back Up Your Birth Control is launching a New Year's Eve campaign - Don't Drop The Ball.

The Don't Drop The Ball campaign reminds women that if you have a birth control "oops," emergency contraception (EC) is available at the pharmacy and can help prevent pregnancy if taken within 120 hours.

Check out our web video - watch it, repost it, and share it with your friends.

Then, visit, where you can send your girlfriends a funny morning-after message from our cast of crazy New Year's Eve revelers. It will give them a good laugh. And more importantly, if one of your friends does have a birth control accident on New Year's Eve, it will remind her that EC is available.

In order to address the increased need for EC in the days following New Year's Eve, we'd love your help in disseminating this campaign. Please send the video and website out to your lists, share on Facebook, post on your website or blog, and forward to all your friends!

Here's to helping women prevent unintended pregnancies in the new year!

The Back Up Your Birth Control Team.
