What is the Morning After Pill?

The morning after pill has many different names and connotations, some of them being “Plan B” and “Emergency Contraception”. These are pills taken to prevent an unwanted pregnancy, providing it is taken shortly after intercourse. The morning after pill is a prescription-only medication that requires a qualified prescription.

How long after intercourse can you take the morning after pill?

It’s good to highlight that the morning after pill is not used to abort a baby, but instead to prevent a woman from having an unwanted pregnancy. It prevents the woman from releasing an egg, which ultimately stops conception from occurring. Depending on the type of morning after pill used it could be effective for up to 72 hours or 120 hours after having unprotected sex.

How effective is the morning after pill?

The morning after pill is very effective. It stops an egg from being released which in turn prevents conception from occurring. When taking levonorgestrel, this can prevent up to 87% of pregnancies, when taken within 72 hours. This then increases the sooner you take it, with 95% of pregnancies being prevented with women who took levonorgestrel within 24 hours.

There are some occasional instances where the egg might already have been released, and this is why the morning after pill is not 100% effective.

What are some side-effects of the morning after pill?

Some side-effects of the morning after pill include nausea or vomiting, dizziness, fatigue, breast tenderness, lower abdominal pain or cramps, headaches and bleeding between periods or heavier menstrual bleeding.
