What is Emergency Contraception?

Emergency contraception can be defined as a tablet that a woman takes within 72 hours after unprotected sex to prevent pregnancy. When other forms of contraception have failed for various reasons, like a condom coming off or bursting during sex, it’s still termed unprotected sex.

How does our Emergency Contraception work?

You can now get Emergency Contraception in Cardiff. It works by holding up the release of an egg in the ovulation phase of your menstrual cycle. Ovulation is then triggered by the rising levels of luteinising hormone (LH) in your body. When the levels of LH are high, the chances of the morning-after pill preventing pregnancy are low.

So, it’s worth noting that you should take the pill as soon as possible after unprotected sex for it to work effectively.
