Using emergency contraception pills will reduce the possibility of pregnancy. Generally, a woman is most likely to become pregnant if she has sexual intercourse within a few days before and after ovulation.

Emergency contraception should be avoided by women who are planning to become sexually active. These pills should not be used regularly.

Yasmin

Yasmin, an contraceptive pill, works by preventing the release of an egg from the ovary. It causes changes in the uterine lining and makes it harder for the sperm to reach the uterus. This drug can be used by women who are 14 years or older whose menstrual periods have started.

Cerazette

These tablets are also known as the mini pills or progestogen only pills. Cerazette works by changing the quality of the womb lining and make it difficult for sperm to reach the womb.

Microgynon

These pills are a type of hormonal contraception, known as “the pill”. The two main ingredients of Microgynon are ethinylestradiol and levonorgestrel, synthetic forms of female sex hormones, progesterone and oestrogen. These ingredients work by overriding the menstrual cycle and controlling the level of sex hormones each month.

Millions of women use these pills to prevent a pregnancy after unprotected sexual intercourse. While these pills are effective in preventing an unwanted pregnancy, they do not protect you against sexually transmitted diseases.

You can see good results only if you take these pills as prescribed. Take them on a regular basis, even when you are having your periods. Always consult a doctor before using these pills.
