You can prevent an unplanned pregnancy up to 72 hours after unprotected sex. For pregnancy to occur, the fertilized egg has to attach itself to the womb which can take 2 to 4 days. To avoid the risk of pregnancy you need to use the pill within this time frame and not later than 72 hours. The sooner the pill is taken, the more effective it is. The emergency contraceptive pills claim to have an efficacy of 95% if taken within 24 hours of unprotected sex, 85% efficacy between 24-48 hours and 58% if taken between 48-72 hours. These pills contain a high dosage of hormones that prevent pregnancy. Hence a woman’s menstrual cycle is disturbed with regular intake of these hormones. Nausea, vomiting, a feeling of heaviness and headache are some common side effects of the pill. If you vomit within 2-3 hours after taking the pill, it is advisable to take another one. The pills should be used only in a rarity and should never be used on a regular basis. If there are pimples, it will be due to the hormonal changes in your cycle and system.
