Also known as Plan B or the morning after pill, emergency contraception is a safe and effective way to prevent pregnancy after unprotected sex.
What is it?
Emergency contraception is a single dose taken orally. EC works by suppressing ovulation and does NOT work if an individual is already pregnant, nor will it harm an existing pregnancy. Emergency contraception is most effective if taken within 72 hours (3 days) after vaginal sex but can be taken up to 120 hours (5 days) after vaginal sex.
When to take it?
EC can be used to prevent pregnancy in the following circumstances:
- A condom or other birth control method was not used when you had vaginal sex.
- You forgot to take your birth control method on time.
- The condom broke or slipped off.
- Your partner ejaculated inside of you.
- You were forced to have unprotected vaginal sex.
