Emergency Contraception

Emergency Contraception, commonly known as the “Morning After Pill”, can now be used within 120 hours (5 days) of an episode of unprotected intercourse.

This method is approximately 85% effective in preventing pregnancy.

Emergency Contraception involves taking two doses of medication 12 hours apart. The first dose should be taken as soon as possible, but no later than 120 hours from unprotected intercourse.

You should have a normal period within 3 weeks. If you do not, you should return to our office for a pregnancy test.
