Emergency Contraception-Morning After Pill Call us at (631) 435-4300 for more information.
contraceptives are ways of avoiding a pregnancy after unprotected sex.
Emergency Contraception has also been termed "morning after
contraception," "The Morning after Pill," or "the day after pill." These
terms can be misleading because Emergency Contraception may be used
before the morning after or up to several days after intercourse.
Emergency Contraception does not protect one from sexually transmitted infections or venereal disease.
Emergency Contraception can be used if a condom breaks, after a sexual
assault, or any time unprotected sexual intercourse occurs. There have
been many forms of Emergency Contraception. Please call your health care
provider to find out what the best plan would be for you.
Contraception, also known as Plan B and the Morning After Pill,
prevents a woman from becoming pregnant after she has had unprotected
vaginal intercourse. According to the FDA, Plan B or the Morning-After
Pill are approximately 80% effective if used within 72 hours of
unprotected sex. However, the sooner it is taken, the more effective it
is in protecting against pregnancy.
B or the Morning-After Pill should not be confused with the Abortion
Pill (also known as RU-486, mifepristone, and Mifeprex®) which is used
between 5 and 10 weeks after the first day of the last menstrual period.
Because Plan B or the Morning-After Pill are used prior to the earliest
time of implantation, they are considered to be forms of contraception
and NOT methods of abortion.
B or the Morning-After Pill should only be used very occasionally in
the event of the failure of other methods of contraception. It is NOT suggested as a method of regular birth control.
B or the Morning-After Pill are considered very safe and is available
in the U.S. to women 18 years or older without any prescription at most
pharmacies for about $50.00 or can be obtained directly from us.
