Q & A

An emergency contraceptive pill, also known as ‘morning after pill’, is an immediate method for females to avoid pregnancy. This stops you from getting pregnant if you have had an unprotected sex. However, it is not recommended on a daily basis. This pill prevents the released of the egg from ovaries. Moreover, it does not allow the sperm to fertilize the egg. You should take the emergency contraceptive pills within 24 hours of unprotected sex. Although recommended time last for 72 hours, the pill reduces its efficiency with time. The effectiveness of this is around 98% when taken with 24 hours. If you vomit after taking the pill, immediately take another one. The emergency pill does not work for women who weigh more than 70 kg.

Levonelle 1500 tablet is known as ‘morning after pill’. It reduces the chances of getting pregnant after an unprotected sex. Levonelle 1500 contains an active ingredient, levonorgestrel. It represents the progestogen (the female sex hormone). This hormone delays the release of the egg from the ovaries and prevents ovulation in the body. This medicine works only for 3 days (after unprotected sex). However, it is better to take the tablet as early as possible. Levonelle 1500 is not to be used on a regular basis.

I am contemplating trying the Pills, but apparently is it harmful for younger women?

No. The risks surrounding the pills aren’t big at all, but they become much higher when taken by older women. In the age group of 16-25, the danger of experiencing any unpleasant side effects is very small.

Do birth control pills protect me from STIs?

Birth control contraceptives do not protect you from STIs. However, only condoms can help to effectively prevent most STIs.

Do birth control pills cause weight gain?

No. There is no research to conclude that birth control pills cause weight gain. However, the birth control shot/injection has, in some cases, been linked to weight gain in certain women.

Which birth control method is the most effective?

Certain methods of birth control are more popular than others, but finding the method most suitable for you completely differs from person to person. If you are looking to prevent pregnancy as greatly as possible, we’d recommend using a highly effective form of birth control (such as COC, ring, UID, etc.) as well as condoms. This way, you will be receiving prevention from pregnancy and protection from STD transmission.
