Despite my wanting the ground to open up and swallow me of late, I feel compelled to take a deep breath, wipe the naughty school girl smirk from my face and spread the word about contraception. I'm a sensible and intelligent young lady (usually) so rather than assuming you'd never be stupid...

ConsSide effects such as nausea

A couple of months back my husband and I had a 'split condom experience' so we decided to use the morning after pill (MAP). How I Got It ----------------- There is no longer any need to go to your GP to get the morning after pill (although you can if you want) as pharmacies are now allowed to...

Earlier this year, in a storm of controversy, the so-called “morning-after” pill was made available over the counter at pharmacies. This means that women who have had unprotected sex and are worried about a possible unwanted pregnancy, can now go to their local chemist and buy the...

After hearing horror stories of the possible side effects of the morning after pill, I was dreading ever having to take it. Just my luck that no matter how safe I try to be something would go wrong! I had been taking Microgynon 30 and happened to be sick one night. You are advised to use extra...

Well, I'm sure if you've read even one of the other opinions you'll have got the medical gist of what comes with Levonelle and the unfortunate circumstances that require it to be taken. Mine's a more personal account I guess, therapy if you like. I was meant to be going home for a weekend...

Consvomiting!

The misleadingly named Morning after pill can actually be taken up to 72 hours after unprotected sexual intercourse. Obviously the sooner it is taken the more effective it will be. As with any contraceptive device it is not 100% effective. Levonelle-2 is in fact only 85% effective and the...

ConsWas expensive over counter

Being young and of course naive, for some reason I always thought that condoms would always work. So, of course, when the condom my boyfriend and I were using broke; we panicked. Not long after the incident, we decided to walk into town into the nearest pharmacy to get the morning after pill. Of...

“Better To Be Safe Than Sorry”

Proeasy to take, easy to access

Cons-

Only recently, I had a bit of a scare where I needed to take the morning after pill just to be safe than sorry. Before taking it I had never really found out a lot of information about it but I think more women need to know about it just for safety and to maybe lower unwanted pregnancies. I have...

Before I start I'd like to point out two very popular misconceptions about Levonelle. firstly it might be nicked named the morning after pill but it can actually be taken up to 72 hours after unprotected intercourse. Secondly Levonelle is not an abortion pill. Levonelle consists of two tablets...

Many people are unaware that the "morning after pill" can be taken within 72 hours of having unprotected sex. With most types of pill you have to take 2 pills, then 12 hours later take 2 more. So if you take it, remember to set your alarm or leave a note reminding you to take the second two pills...

I'm writing this review for those women that need reassurance duing a time that can be extremely nerve wracking. My experience was made particularly stressful by the fact that apparently, I do not fit into the category of 'most women.' "Most women," Levonelle says, "should have their period at...
