The Morning After Pill

Contraceptives

The so-called morning after pill, a.k.a. emergency contraception, is a birth control pill that consists, in fact, of a mix of pills that should be taken within 72 hours after sexual intercourse, in order to prevent or suppress unintended pregnancy altogether, in case of unprotected sex or failure in the contraceptive method, like, for instance, when sexual intercourse takes place against your will; when a condom slips off or rips during sex; when a diaphragm is used without spermicide; you miss pills or start a new pack late; your IUD is ejected). Since contraception is something which only concerns ones' own sexuality, free will to decision-making and the pill itself hinges on accurate information as to what's best for each individual. Here's what there is to be known about the morning after pill.

How To Get It:
This birth control pill is only available by medical prescription.

How To Take It:
After sexual intercourse, within 72 hours period, the first and the second doses should be taken with 12 hours time-lapse between each, each blister consists of 2 to 4 pills.

How The Morning After Pill Works:
It may work by delaying ovulation- when ordinary menstrual cycle gets out of order -, inhibition of ovulation, preventing the egg from being released, and, if both fails and the woman gets pregnant, by stopping the embryo, so that it won't make to the lining of the uterus.

Pros:
It's effectiveness vary from 80 to 99%. Very good for emergency cases in which eventual conception wasn't prevented. Yet, there suits perfectly, as previously referred, as very effective back up role for primary contraception methods failed.

Cons:
Side effects such as headaches, nausea, abdominal cramps, saggy breasts, eventual vomiting, as well as irregular bleeding, as a result of changes in the next period produced by the morning after pill, which can come either early or late.

Advice:
The morning after pill does not prevent sexually transmitted diseases and should not be used neither by someone allergic to pills nor by pregnant women.

Who Can Take It:
Practically every woman can use this contraceptive pill, except in the cases aforementioned above (women allergic to pills and the pregnant-ones). But, again, it must be only used under medical prescription.

Risks:
No birth defects nor infertility is caused by this contraceptive pill.

Total price:
Costs range from $20 to $25.
