My family was already large enough

The last time I took the morning after pill was this year. Me and my husband were a bit drunk and careless, and I have a few things going on medically and career wise, which means I didn’t (don’t) want to risk having another child.

There are two different emergency contraceptive options:

  • Did the condom slip off or break?

  • Did you forget to:

    • Take your pill?

    • Insert contraceptive ring?

    • Apply contraceptive patch?

  • Did your diaphragm or cap slip or did you forget to use it?

  • Did he fail to pull out in time?

If you’ve had unprotected sex within the last five days, and now is not the right time for a baby, you are right to consider emergency contraception, such as the morning after pill, ellaOne®.

Talk to your pharmacist or ask them for details about your emergency contraception options.
