If you’ve recently had unprotected sex, or the condom broke, you may be wondering about the Morning After Pill.
In Canada, the Morning After Pill (emergency contraception) 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.
Your best care is always through your doctor. Anytime you take medication, it is best to be informed about possible side effects and risks.
If you are unsure about this decision or would just like someone to talk to, call us. We are not a medical facility, but we can provide you with education and peer support.
I’ve already used emergency contraception. Do I still need a pregnancy test?
Come in for a pregnancy test if your period:
- Does not start within 3 weeks
- Is more than 7 days later than expected
- Is much lighter than usual
Drop in or call/text us today.
