Safety of Emergency Contraception

Certification in Robotic surgery in Gynecology, MRCOG (LONDON), Fellowship in Gyn Endoscopy, MD - Gynaecologist & Obstetrician, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
Safety of Emergency Contraception

Emergency is helpful in preventing pregnancies post unprotected sexual activity. It can be used in case of contraceptive failure, in case of sexual assault, incorrect use of contraceptives and unprotected sex.

Emergency contraception can be done by three methods. These are emergency contraceptive pills, combined oral contraceptive pills and copper intrauterine devices.

The copper IUD is considered to be one of the most effective forms of emergency contraception, when it is inserted within 5 days of unprotected sexual activity.

However, the emergency contraceptive pill regimen as per WHO is:

  • 1 dose of levonorgestrel 1.5 mg, or 1 dose of ulipristal 30 mg, taken within 5 days (120 hours) of unprotected intercourse

  • The Yuzpe regimen which consists of 2 doses of combined oral contraceptive pills

What is Emergency Contraception?

Emergency contraception is usually referred to as the contraception which is used to prevent a pregnancy within the first 5 days after an unprotected sexual activity. It is used post failures of contraception, coerced unprotected sex, rape or misuse of contraception.

Emergency contraception is only effective in the first few days after an intercourse and before the egg has released from the ovary, and before there is fertilization between the egg and the sperm. The emergency contraception can do no harm to an interrupted pregnancy and a developing embryo.

Who needs emergency contraception?

Any girl or woman who is at her reproductive age might need an emergency contraception in case of an unprotected sexual intercourse.

Uses:

  1. Breakage, slippage or displacement of barrier methods
  2. Three or more missed OCPills for more than 12 hours
  3. Missed Mini pill for more than 3 hours
  4. Missed Desoestrel pills for more than 12 hours
  5. DMPA injections taken more than 2 weeks late
  6. Miscalculated dates of last period and present ovulation side effects

These are meant only for emergency contraception and NOT AS A REGULAR CONTRACEPTIVE. It involves pumping of a hormone inside your body at levels which are 5 times higher than normal. hence excessive and unnecessary use may cause irregularity in the period cycles and an adverse effect on the menstrual health over a period of time. Ideally it should be taken under guided medical supervision.

In what situations should emergency contraception be used?

Emergency contraception can be used after a sexual intercourse. These include:

  • In case of no use of contraceptives

  • If it is a case of rape or coerced sex, where the woman was not protected

  • When there is a contraceptive failure, like

    • breakage

    • incorrect use or slippage

    • OCPILLS,

    • mini pills

    • DMPA

  • 3 or more missed combined oral contraceptives, progestogen-only pill (minipill) taken more than 3 hours late, desogestrel-containing pill 12 hours or more, norethisterone enanthate (NET-EN) progestogen-only injection taken more than 2 weeks late

  • Delay in placing or dislodgement or early removal of the skin patch or the hormonal ring

  • Breaking, dislodgement, tearing or early removal of cervical cap or diaphragm

  • Failure of withdrawal that is ejaculation the external genitalia or vagina

  • The spermicide tablet failure

  • Miscalculating the periods, failure from using a barrier on the fertile days

  • Expulsion of an intrauterine contraceptive device (IUD)

Methods of Emergency Contraception:

There are three emergency contraception methods:

  1. Copper-bearing intrauterine devices (IUDs)

  2. Emergency contraception pills (ECPs)

  3. Combined oral contraceptive pills or the Yuzpe method

This is normal. I advise you to take proper balanced vegetarian diet. Take fruits and vegetables in daily diet. Take 8 to 10 glasses of water daily. Avoid non veg and eggs. Keep your weight normal as compared to your height. Do meditation for mental strength by doing slow and deep breathing relaxation exercises in the morning for 30 times. This will help in your periods.

If intercourse was done right after menses there s no chance of pregnancy. Also you hv given her I pill so there s nothing to worry. I pill contains hormones which can lead to some bleeding sometimes. Donot worry. This bleeding will stop on its own.

This is very important because, if you don’t know exactly when you ovulate and aren’t having sex at the right time, you’re not going to get pregnant if there’s no sperm to meet an egg once ovulation happens. I promise you, you will not get pregnant. So having very predictable cycles is a very important thing.

Super Fact of the Day: Laughing can help you lose about 300 calories!

Super Fact of the Day: Laughing can help you lose about 300 calories!
All of us know that laughing is good for one’s health. But laughing 100 times has been found to equal 15 minutes of exercise on a stationary cycle or 10 minutes on a rowing machine. So, instead of pedalling quickly for rapid burning of body fat, simply laugh.

hi Sargun, in pregnancy their are hormonal changes which can cause mood swings don't worry it is due to hormones. Regards to your thyroid problem you should keep strict watch on thyroid and dose adjustment is required as per level. Thyroid has critical role in brain and spine development in the baby. please don't neglect as uncontrolled thyroid levels can lead to abortion also. wish you good luck!!

First and the foremost thing is become comfortable and easy with each other sex you should have only when you feel like it and not just because you got married if you are comfortable with each other then muscles relax your hormones and chemicals get released to make penetration easy and enjoyable still for first time you sure can use some lubricant to make it more easy and comfortable for both.

Hello , 1. Eat ragulu, jonnalu. More fiber content food. 2. Take less amount of carbohydrates which store in your body for one or two days. 3. Add protein and vitamins/minerals into your diet which will never store in your body for a long time, but very essential. 3. Add omega-3 to your diet. Long run you will never come into any port pregnancy side effects. 4. Add calcium to your diet. Let me know if can suggest you the best food supplements, my wife conceived a health baby few mother later. She is also a c-sec, but had a very good health in few days by the supplements which I suggested. Have a healthy life.

If I had sex without precaution just before my partner's period date. What are the chances of her to get pregnant? And I didn't eject inside. Is it safe?

Dear Lybrate user. If the intercourse is just before your partners period date, and if the period actually came the next day, even if you ejaculate within her vagina, it will not cause pregnancy. Take care.

I am a girl of 17 yrs. I am not having periods properly. I had medicines. After medicines it happens. In dat month but den it makes a long gap of 4, 5 months. I tried homeopathy. And first time the regularity was of 4 months on date. After that the same problem. I feel my weight is also gaining due to that factor. And I am dissapointed hugely. Wat should I do to get through all this? for weight factoir I tried baba ramdev's medicine but I guess dat did not work and I gained some weight too instead of loosing. Now I am doing gym. N that is also not benifiting poroperly.

The common cause for having no periods properly due to pcos. The common symptoms are: acne. Weight gain and trouble losing weight. Extra hair on the face and body. Often women get thicker and darker facial hair and more hair on the chest, belly, and back. Thinning hair on the scalp. Irregular periods. Often women with pcos have fewer than nine periods a year. Some women have no periods. Others have very heavy bleeding. Fertility problems. Many women who have pcos have trouble getting pregnant (infertility). Depression.

It is highly unlikely that you would get pregnant with sex immediately after menses as ovulation occurs much later, but still possibility can not be ruled out as sperms can in rare situation live upto 7 days and ovulation can occur early. So it is better to take i-pill immediately to avoid un-necessary complications. To calculate safe period you can use following calender method but it is highly unreliable as it has high chance of failure. If a women’s menstrual cycle varies from 26days to 31days cycle, The shortest cycle (26days) minus18days=8th day. The longest cycle (31days) minus 10days=21st day Thus, 8th to 21st day of each cycle counting from first day of menstrual period is considered as fertile period. That is UNSAFE PERIOD during which you should not have it. Period other than this fertile period in a menstrual cycle is considered as SAFE PERIOD.
