The Effectiveness Of Consumption Of Emergency Contraception 30 Hours After Intercourse?
Hello, I’m FIFA. I just got married. I have a relationship with my husband, but I do not want to get pregnant first, finally I took the Andalan family pill during the day after intercourse, but my husband was browsing and he got a website that said to take the Postinor2 pill. But I drink 30 hours after intercourse and drink LGGG as much as 2 tablets. Does the effectiveness of these drugs still work to the maximum? And do I continue to take the pill for the next day? Although I did not have sex with my husband, thank you
Hello Ms. Fifa,
Emergency contraceptive pills can be used a maximum of 72-120 hours after intercourse. If more, then the effectiveness is reduced. Then until the next menstruation comes, do extra protection if you have sex for example with a condom or other contraceptive. Emergency contraception can prevent fertilization from occurring but cannot abort / abort the womb if it has already occurred. Based on your story, you drink it for less than 72 hours so it's most likely still effective.
You should consult a doctor when taking this drug, because this drug is a hormonal drug whose levels are quite high and the effect can be different in each woman. After taking this medicine there may be nausea, dizziness, and bleeding / spotting from the vagina.
To prevent the same thing from happening, it is better if you do not want to have children using long-term contraceptives such as an IUD, injectable birth control or implants.
