Emergency contraception should be used as soon as possible after unprotected sex or contraceptive failure. It is most effective when taken within the first 24 hours but can be used up to 72 hours (or even up to 120 hours for certain types) after intercourse.

No, emergency contraception is not the same as abortion. Emergency contraception prevents pregnancy from occurring, while abortion terminates an existing pregnancy.

The effectiveness of emergency contraception depends on various factors, including the timing of administration and the specific method used. Generally, emergency contraception can significantly reduce the risk of pregnancy when taken as directed, but it is not 100% effective.

Emergency contraception works by temporarily altering hormonal levels in the body to prevent ovulation or fertilisation. While it may cause temporary hormonal changes, these effects are generally reversible and do not have long-term implications for hormonal balance.

There is no evidence to suggest that emergency contraception causes infertility. Emergency contraception is a temporary method used to prevent pregnancy and does not affect fertility in the long term.
