Last week on 21/11, I took escapelle pill after having unprotected sex in less than 48 hours. This month my first period was on 7/11. When my period date will be on next month ? How much percentage of escapelle pill preventing pregnancy ? I asked these questions because Im not confident that escapelle can prevent pregnancy. Plus, I just knew about escapelle. I hope dr can help me to explain about escapelle.

Hello, and thank you for contacting us

We truly understand your concern with regard to your current condition. However, our views would only reflect based on the description that you have brought forth into the forum.

A good family planning is the secret for a successful and happy family

For your information, it is estimated that Escapelle will prevent the expected 85% of pregnancies. 95% of pregnancies are expected to be prevented if taken within the first 24 hours, down to 58% if taken between 48 hours and 72 hours after an unprotected intercourse.

Escapelle is considered a birth control pill or contraceptive pill when it is taken within 72 hours of having sex. It works by interfering with the hormones in your body - hence prevents for insemination or fertilization to occur. It is not always harmful but still has notable side effects. Albeit consuming Escapelle too often, will interfere with your wife’s menstrual cycle and other corresponding side effects.

For women who have frequent sexual intercourse, it is advisable to take contraceptives such as IUCD or hormone contraceptive injections other than birth control pills to prevent pregnancy for a long time. Since you have taken the first pill in less than 48 hours, then the protective effect of the drug on pregnancy (theoretically by 85% chance) still works.
