Lets talk about what Emergency Contraception is!
Emergency Contraception is a hormonal emergency birth control method used to delay ovulation to reduce the risk of a pregnancy. The hormones delay ovulation – the process when the ovaries release an egg – and thicken cervical mucus. Emergency Contraception is not an abortion pill. It will not harm or end a pregnancy; it will only work to delay ovulation to reduce the risk of a pregnancy. It can be taken up to 5 days after pregnancy may have occurred, and it is more effective the sooner it is taken.
