Morning After Pill
The Morning After Pill, also called the Plan B pill, is often thought to induce abortion, when in fact, it is a form of contraception. It contains progestin, which acts as a form of birth control. It is also confused with “The Abortion Pill” (RU-486), which works differently to end a pregnancy.
Referred to as emergency contraception, the morning after pill:
- Can be used any time up to 5 days after unprotected intercourse
- Avoids pregnancy
- Prevents ovulation, fertilization or implantation of an embryo
- Is safe and effective: reduces the risk of pregnancy by 89%
