Post pills; also called ‘ Morning After pills’. First, we hope you know post pills do not prevent STDs, despite using post pills, birth control pills, using condoms is one of the best options. please do not shave your private part just before that ‘knacks’.
Sorry, we deviated from the topic, we just needed that to ring a bell so you take precautions.
Post pills are emergency contraceptive, they should be taken immediately after sex or within a few days. The earlier they are taken, the more effective they are.
What post pills do is to prevent pregnancy by preventing ovulation, that is, delay the release of the eggs from the ovary. If already pregnant, morning-after pills do not end a pregnancy.
The post pills fail;
• When one has another unprotected sex after taking it, it does not have lasting protection from pregnancy.
• If you started ovulating before taking the pill,
• If you are taking a drug that interacts with the pill, e.g, antibiotics like rifampin. Treatment.
For epilepsy and heartburn may also reduce the effectiveness of post pills. Some women may experience nausea, abdominal pain, fatigue, headache, dizziness, menstrual changes and maybe breast tenderness which does not last for more than a few days.
Menstrual changes are popular in a lot of women. Anna once said after seeing her period, ‘na anyway you see am, collect am’.
Post pills can be gotten over the counter without a prescription, unlike birth control pills which you have to discuss with your doctor.
We are saying post pills do not really have serious side effects on your body. Most of the side effects listed above occur in few women though menstrual changes are very common. If one is sexually violated, your condom broke, birth control fails, it is advisable to get a post-pill. It should be the first thing on your mind.
If you experience any other side effects asides from the ones listed above, please dears, we will like to know. For more information, kindly click here
