What is "the Morning-after Pill"?
Emergency contraception more commonly known as "the morning-after pill" is two large doses of hormones, similar to the ones in the birth control pill.  The first dose must be taken within 72 hours of unprotected or inadequately protected intercourse, followed by a second dose 12 hours later.  It is meant only as a back-up method of birth control to be used on an emergency basis only if you believe there has been a failure in your current method of birth control (i.e. when a condom breaks, if you have missed 2 or more days of the pill, etc).
 
 
How does the Morning-after Pill work?
The morning-after pill will prevent or delay the release of an egg from the ovary if given prior to ovulation, or it will help prevent the egg from traveling down the fallopian tubes and implanting in the uterus if you have already ovulated.  The morning-after pill reduces the chance of getting pregnant; it does NOT cause an abortion.
 
 
How effective is the Morning-after Pill?
The morning-after pill is approximately 98-99% effective.  However, the statistics of being pregnant rests greatly on where you are in your menstrual cycle.  You are only fertile at the time of ovulation.  If 100 women each had a single act of unprotected intercourse on one day in the middle of their cycle and then take the morning-after pill, only 2 to 3 will get pregnant.
 
 
Am I a good candidate for the Morning-after Pill?

Almost all women can use the morning-after pill, including most women who were told not to take the birth control pill on a regular basis.  This includes women with past history of breast cancer, women over 35 who are smokers.  You may decide to use the morning-after pill if:

Abortion Clinic RU486 you have failed to use any method
Abortion Clinic RU486 the condom you used broke or slipped off
Abortion Clinic RU486 you used a diaphragm without spermicide
Abortion Clinic RU486 your IUD was expelled
Abortion Clinic RU486 you missed pills or started a new pack late
Abortion Clinic RU486 you had intercourse against your will
 
 
Are there any reasons why I shouldn't use the Morning-after Pill?
Yes, if you are currently pregnant.  The morning-after pill will not work if you are already pregnant.  Otherwise, the morning-after pill is safe for most women. The final decision is between you and your doctor.
