Emergency contraception

Emergency contraception 🆘 is a method of contraception that can be used from time to time, in special unexpected or emergency situations, and not as the main form of protection against unwanted pregnancy☝️

❓When Emergency Contraception and https://pillintrip.com/ru/medicine/citoles May Be Needed:

❤️If you have had unprotected intercourse at any time in the past five days (120 hours).
❤️If you have used your usual method of contraception incorrectly, or it may not have worked (and you have had intercourse) in the past five days (120 hours).

So what are the situations?
📌 The condom broke or slipped off.
📌You forgot to take COCs for two or more days in a row.
📌You took progestin-only birth control pills (“mini-pills”) more than three hours late.
📌You forgot to get an injection of medroxyprogesterone acetate (or are more than 2 weeks late)
📌 The diaphragm or cervical cap was displaced or removed too early.
📌 The contraceptive patch has come off.
📌The vaginal ring fell out by accident.
📌There was a failed coitus interruptus.

Emergency contraceptive drugs:
✅Levonorgestrel
✅Ulipristal acetate (not certified in the Russian Federation as emergency contraception)
✅Mifepristone (used in some countries, including the Russian Federation)
✅COK (several tablets at once)

Some types of emergency contraception do not contain hormones. These are copper intrauterine devices (IUDs) and ulipristal acetate.

⌛️ Both levonorgestrel, mifepristone, and COCs are most effective when taken as soon as possible after unprotected intercourse.
They can be taken within 120 hours (5 days), but the effect will be lower.
⏳Ulipristal acetate is effective up to 120 hours (five days).
⏳ An intrauterine device (IUD) can also be inserted within 120 hours (five days) of unprotected intercourse.

❓ Is emergency contraception safe?
-Yes, it’s safe! In addition, not all species contain hormones (IUD and ulipristal).

❗️Emergency contraception can be used when needed, but a much more effective way to prevent unwanted pregnancies is through routine contraception.
