The morning-after pill is a contraceptive. It is one of the easiest ways to prevent pregnancy from happening after having unprotected sex.
The morning-after pill is also called Plan B, or Post pill. The pill is taken within 72 hours after having unprotected sex. The earlier you take the pill, the more effective the pill is.
The morning-after pill has about 79-89% chance if preventing pregnancy. But also note that it doesn’t get rid of pregnancies. So, once you’re pregnant, the pill becomes useless in your body system.
This pill prevents pregnancy because it contains more doses of levonorgestrel which is an artificial hormone that prevents pregnancy. This hormone works by preventing ovulation. It delays the release of eggs and as it is known, when eggs are not release, the sperm cannot fertilize anything.
Furthermore, the morning-after pill has some side effects ranging from breast tenderness to headaches, fatigue, nausea and vomiting, irregular period and light bleeding. However, not every woman experiences these side effects.
So, to avoid stories that touch the heart, emergency contraceptives are an easy way to remedy the mistake of having an unprotected sex.
