Hi, I had sex right after taking morning after pill(prostinor), will the emergency contraceptive still works or should I take another? Will it effect my menstruation? And I just had an abortion on Dec, I don’t think I am ready to be pregnant soon after the abortion.

Greetings! Thank you for your questions.

First and foremost, we truly understand your concerns regarding emergency contraception. For your information, emergency contraceptive pills 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 will need to take the second pill after 12 hours taking the first pill. You can also refer to the details on the packaging.

Other than emergency pills, emergency contraceptive methods available in Malaysia if one does not desire to get pregnant after unprotected sex is IUCD (A device inserted into the woman’s private part). 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. In order for us to provide you with an accurate choice of treatment and management, we need additional details to explore further into your current complaints. Therefore, we greatly suggest that you refer this to your nearest medical doctor for full examination. You may also click on this link (DoctorOnCall) to speak with our doctors online. We assure you that our conversations are kept in confidentiality unless additional consultation needed with other medical parties. Thank you.

Stay happy without any hesitation
