Asked for female, 26 years old from Bangalore
Emergency pill within 72 hours. Accepting that after taking high hormonal emergency pill one gets withdrawal bleeding 5 to 10 days later, and then new cycle starts.
For future- As emergency pills have high hormones it is not used as regular family planning method so learn about family planning methods and choose one for future.
There are many temporary family planning methods like oral pills, injectable hormones, Intra uterine devices, condoms, diaphragms, safe period, coitus interruptus etc. You must know about success and failure rates of all as well as advantages and dis-advantages of all to decide which suits you the best. May be consult Gynecologist as a couple. You may listen to audio information about family planning at my hospital site http://ankurhospital.com/mp3/tfp. Mp3.
