Emergency pill is a birth control pill you can use to prevent unplanned pregnancy after unprotected sex also known as the morning-after pill. It is easily accessible in Singapore. The pill contains progestin which is one of the hormones found in birth control pills. The hormone functions by prohibiting ovulation, or ovaries from releasing eggs. Pregnancy cannot occur if there is no egg to join with sperm. The hormone in the pill also prevents pregnancy by thickening a woman’s cervical mucus. Which in turn blocks sperm and keeps it from joining with an egg. The hormone serves its purpose by thinning the lining of the uterus, this prevents pregnancy by keeping a fertilized egg from attaching to the uterus.
An overview of the morning after pill Singapore
The effectiveness of the morning-after pill is determined by how early you take it after unprotected sexual intercourse. It is advised you take it within 3 to 5 days after unprotected sex. Because of the urgency needed for this contraceptive, we advise you to buy your morning after pill singapore on DA and have it delivered to you in Mainland Singapore within 72 hours.
Taking Emergency contraception may have some side effects. Although not common to all women some have reported the following side effects:
- Irregular bleeding
- Breast tenderness
- Nausea (this can be reduced by eating before taking the pills or taking anti-nausea one hour before taking the pill)
- Irregular menses
Although its effectiveness is between 75-89%, morning after pill singapore should strictly be used as its name suggest, for emergencies only. It does not offer lasting protection. If you engage in unprotected sex days after taking the pill it would not protect you from unwanted pregnancy. There are misconceptions in Singapore that the emergency pill is the same as the ‘’abortion pill’ ’this is not true. If one is already carrying pregnancy it will not interfere with the pregnancy hence does not cause abortion.
