Contraceptive pills for after sex just to be sure

Answered by: Dr Ramzdhan

Hi, I would like to ask, what pills should I take for extra precaution if I were to engage in sex in the coming weeks and my period has ended?

Greetings. Thank you for your questions.

First and foremost, we truly understand your concerns. There are few types of emergency contraceptive methods available in Malaysia if one does not desire to get pregnant after unprotected sex:

  • Progestin only pills
  • IUCD (A device inserted into the woman’s private part)

Most commonly used is Levonorgestrel. It is estimated that Levonorgestrel will prevent 95% of pregnancies if taken within the first 24 hours, decreasing to 58% if taken between 48 hours and 72 hours after unprotected sex. Although you have taken it later than the usual time, as long as it is taken within the first 72 hours, the effectiveness will still be there.

You may also opt for other contraceptive method for example using combined contraceptive pill and barrier method.

The following answers regarding your current queries are just general descriptions.
