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).
Make sure that you understand the difference between the “morning after pill,” and “the abortion pill.”
If you take the “morning after pill,” make an appointment within a couple of weeks to be examined by our medical staff to ensure that you are not pregnant.
If you find out that you have an early pregnancy and choose the abortion pill (Mifiprex) as your method of pregnancy termination, make sure that you follow the guidelines in the web site for a non surgical-medical abortion.
