Morning After Pill


Medical Abortion (AKA Emergency Contraception or E.C.)

There are different types of Morning After Pills, which are not the same as the Abortion Pill that is taken after a pregnancy is confirmed. The Morning After Pill is taken within 72 hours after unprotected sex. It works to:

  1. prevent or delay ovulation
  2. prevent fertilization
  3. prevent implantation after an embryo is fertilized (thereby causing an early abortion).

As with any medication, there is a likelihood of complications and side effects. Some side effects include nausea, abdominal pain, headache, dizziness, vomiting, menstrual changes and abnormal bleeding.

Visit the Mayo Clinic for more information about medical abortions.

Our Centers do not offer, recommend or refer for abortions or abortifacients, but we are committed to offering accurate information about abortion procedures and risks.
