The Importance of Emergency Hormonal Contraception

Emergency Hormonal Contraception, commonly known as the morning-after pill, is a vital contraceptive option for women who have had unprotected sex or experienced contraceptive failure. It provides a second chance to prevent pregnancy after an unplanned event.

Timely Access is Crucial

The effectiveness of Emergency Hormonal Contraception decreases with time, so timely access is crucial. The sooner you take the morning-after pill after unprotected intercourse, the higher the chances of preventing pregnancy.
