How Long Is The Efficacy Of Postpil?
I want to ask: How long is the efficacy of postpartum pill pills? If the efficacy is only 3 days Do you have to drink it again? Because sperm can last for 7 days in the vagina? Is it true? Thank you
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Emergency contraception is a contraceptive that is used to prevent post-sexual pregnancy without protection or without the use of appropriate and consistent prior contraception. This contraception has optimal benefits if used in the first 5 days after intercourse, but it will be more effective if used as soon as possible after sexual intercourse. Its effectiveness is quite good because the failure rate is less than 3%.
There are several indications for the use of emergency contraception, including:
Intercourse without contraception
Inappropriate or inconsistent use of contraception, for example: forgetting to take birth control pills for more than 2 tablets, being late for 3-month birth control injections for more than 2 weeks, being late for monthly birth control injections for more than 1 week, condoms leaking / loose / misuse, ejaculation in in the vagina in intercourse is interrupted
There are several types of contraceptive pills with a variety of doses that can be used as an emergency contraceptive method. Generally, its use is within 3 days after intercourse. If you want to use emergency contraception, you are advised to consult with your doctor or obstetrician and gynecologist in order to be evaluated in advance and can be given an appropriate plan for the use of emergency contraception. It should be understood that emergency contraception should not be used arbitrarily and only for temporary use, not for routine use.
