I just took emergency contraception, so I don’t need protection for the next day, no?

Posted on: October 31, 2019

Girl, don’t even think about it. No, you’re NOT protected for the following days after taking emergency contraception (often called the morning after pill). ON THE CONTRARY!


Emergency contraception delays ovulation to prevent a fertilization in that moment when unprotected sex happened. Delay means: the ovulation happens at a later time – maybe exactly at the next time you have sex! So pregnancy can definitely happen.

To be effectively protected for the future choose another contraception method. There are so many options, that you can find the one that fits you perfectly!
