Facts about the morning after pill(1/4)

Emergency contraceptives are the last resort for reducing the risk of unplanned pregnancy, and they are also readily available in many accessible places. The Morning After Pill is a form of emergency contraceptive that can prevent unwanted pregnancy after unprotected sex by delaying ovulation and potentially preventing fertilization. Here are three facts about the emergency contraceptive pill:

The Morning After Pill is available on prescription and over the counter

 The morning after pill is widely known and accessible to most women as long as they are of childbearing age. This emergency contraceptive pill can be obtained on prescription from your doctor or over the counter at your local pharmacy.

For those who value confidentiality, online doctor services allow you to order the morning after pill online. These services are linked to pharmacies which means the products often cost less, and you will also have the benefit of convenience and being discreet. 

The Emergency Contraceptive Pill is not an abortion pill.

It’s essential not to confuse the morning after pill with the abortion pill as these drugs are very different. The morning after medication reduces the risk of unwanted pregnancies by delaying ovulation and preventing fertilization, but it does not end a pregnancy. This pill will not work if you are already pregnant, and it will not affect a pregnancy that has already started. 

The Morning After Pill can be very effective if used correctly

When taken correctly, this emergency contraceptive can be highly effective at preventing unplanned pregnancies. For the pill to have maximum effectiveness, it’s recommended to take it as soon as possible after unprotected sex. Although the name of the medication is ‘Morning After’, the sooner you take medicine, the more likely the drug will be effective.
