Facts About “The Morning After Pill”

Facts:

  • This is not the same thing as RU486.
  • The “Morning After Pill” can be considered an emergency contraceptive in that it is a high dose of the birth control pill.
  • It is recommended to be used after sexual intercourse over a period of 72 hours with the goal to prevent pregnancy or to end it if fertilization has already occurred,

Procedures:

  • The pills are a combination of progestin and estrogen. There are two doses, not just one pill.
