      Plan B for Emergency Situations

      Avoiding Unwanted Pregnancy - A Research Study

      A bad accident always happens. But the worse case is when you don't want to get pregnant. "Plan B" or "Morning-After Pill" is always there to help you. Not only this, when the Morning-After is taken in a lesser dosage - it can be used as regular birth control medications, Research says.

      Abortion Facts:

      Worldwide Only in United States
      Abortions/Year ~ 42 Million ~ 1.37 Million
      Abortion/Day ~ 115,000 ~ 3,700
      • About 52% of Women younger than 25 years are getting abortions in US.
      • Girls aged between 20-24 ranges from 32%.
      • Teens less than 15 years are 15%.

      Abortions can be prevented on using Plan B on regular basis for unexpected pregnancy.

      The Morning-After Pill information

      The Morning-After Pill contains Progestin or Estrogen hormone, when it is taken within 72 hours of intercourse - it prevents the egg from ovulation. Morning after Pills is the best way to avoid unexpected or unwanted pregnancy.

      Morning after Pill vs. Birth Control Pill

      The Birth control pill contains lesser amount of hormone dosage & should be taken orally for a period of 21-28 days per month.

      Morning Pill has high dosage of birth control medication and should be taken within 72 hours of intercourse. Usually it has 3 dosages which should be taken with an interval of 12 hours.

      How does Morning-After Pill work?

      The morning after pill releases the Levonorgestrel which is helpful in eggs getting ovulated. It is very important that the pill should be taken before the fertilization (usually happens in 2-3 days). When it is taken after fertilization, the pills have no effect.
