Morning after pill?

Morning after pill?

How it works. If you’ve recently had unprotected sex, or the condom broke, you may be wondering about the morning after pill (emergency contraception). In Canada, this is known as Plan B or NorLevo and is reported to work in one of several ways depending on where you are at in your menstrual cycle. These medications can work by stopping ovulation, blocking sperm from joining with an egg, or preventing a fertilized egg from implanting (some may consider this an early abortion). These medications do not prevent the spread of Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs), and there are potential risks and side effects to be considered. If you are unsure about this decision or would just like someone to talk to, call us.

I’ve already used Emergency Contraception. Do I still need a pregnancy test? The morning after pill is not always effective; if you are still concerned Come in for a pregnancy test.
