What kinds of emergency birth control pills are there?

Post by Aiminghuge » 19 Nov 2022, 04:55

Emergency contraception, also called "the morning-after pill," is a birth control pill that women take the day after having sex without protection to prevent pregnancy. It is a backup way to avoid getting pregnant if other methods don't work. It works by blocking hormones that are needed for pregnancy or by delaying ovulation so that sperm can't get to an egg.

What kinds of emergency birth control pills are there?

Emergency birth control works better the longer you wait between using it and becoming sexually active. There are different kinds of these pills that work at different times after unprotected sex. For example, Plan B can work up to 72 hours after coitus, while Ella works best 120 hours (5 days) after coitus.

Levonorgestrel is an artificial hormone that is in the Plan-B one-step emergency contraception pill. It can stop pregnancy by making it hard for sperm to attach to an egg or for an egg to mature.

This form of emergency birth control works best if it is used within 72 hours of a risk event, which is having sexual contact without protection.

Ulipristal is a drug that doesn't contain hormones, but it works by stopping the hormones that are needed to get pregnant. It can be taken for up to 120 hours after having sex without protection.
