Plan B One Step – Prevent Pregnancy before Conception

May 14th 2015 at 3:05 AM

ECP should only be used for emergency and not as regular birth control as it may not be effective for long term use. There are many ECPs available for women.

Copper IUD is the most effective method but it has to be inserted by a physician. Pregnancy can be prevented if copper IUD is inserted within 5 days after unprotected sex. It is a slightly expensive emergency contraception but it can protect against pregnancy for 10 years.

Contraception pills are available easily at a cheaper price in all the medical stores. The pills should be taken within 72 hours after unprotected sex. The pills delay ovulation or stop the implantation process which ultimately leads to the prevention of pregnancy.

Emergency Contraception Online are available in different types. Progestin pills contain only levonorgestrel which reduces the chance of pregnancy by 95%. Anti progestin pills contain mifepristone which prevents pregnancy even when it is taken 5 days after unprotected sex. Combination pills contain progestin and estrogen hormones together just like birth control pills but in a much higher dose.

It is necessary to take these pills as early as possible in order to prevent pregnancy. Due to this reason, the pill is termed as the morning after pill. These pills can be taken privately and discretely without any prescription or consultation. Plan B pill one step pills do not prevent the transmission of STDs. Even though these pills do not cause any harm to the body apart from some minor side effects, women prone to heart attacks, stroke and blood clots should consult a physician before taking these emergency pills.

There are a few reasons as to why women take these emergency contraceptive pills.

When the couple has unprotected sex, these pills can be taken.
When the woman’s birth control has failed (diaphragm slipped or went out of place), ECPs can act as birth control.
When the condom breaks during sex, these pills can be taken the morning after sexual intercourse.
Unwanted or forced sex can cause unwanted pregnancy and for this purpose pills can be taken in order to prevent pregnancy.

There are a few common side effects that may be experienced by women who take these hormone pills for preventing pregnancy.

Nausea
Headache
Cramping
Vomiting

Apart from these side effects, it should also be noted that the next period may be delayed or irregular due to the hormonal changes that the body has experienced.
