The morning after pill: 4 truths that 99% of women do not know
A contraceptive method is desirable if you do not want to get pregnant. But accidents can happen to everyone (condom cracking, forget pill …). Do not panic and no drama: the morning after pill helps prevent an unwanted pregnancy. Discover in 4 questions all you need to know about the morning after pill.
1. What is the morning after pill?
Based on progesterone, the hormone that prevents or delays ovulation, the morning after pill prevents implantation of the egg into the uterus.
2. When should I take the morning after pill?
The morning after pill should be taken soon after a risky relationship for optimal effectiveness. Once the fertilized egg is implanted in the uterine lining, the morning after pill is no longer of great use. It is mainly used in case of:
– Forgotten birth control pills
– Unprotected sex (“accident”, forgetfulness, rape)
– Condom that tears during sexual intercourse
– Failure of other methods of contraception
3.Does it work?
The effectiveness of the morning-after pill is conditioned by the speed with which the drug is taken after the risky relationship. Thus, the reliability is 95% for a catch within 12 hours, and 58% for a catch more than 24 hours after the report.
No need to take the morning after pill more than three days after the risky report, it would be of no use.
4. The morning after pill, where do I buy it?
