Hello
Thanks for the query.
The fact is these oral contraceptive pills,you mentioned above,are not used as emergency contraceptive pill.
the other option for abortion,in the absence of MTP pill,is D&C called as surgical abortion.

I hope to have answered your query however you may revert to me for any further query.
Best of luck
Thanks

Hello Dr. XXXXXXX

Another doctor on your site advised a patient that Belara could be used as a emergency contraception, I know that it may not be 100% effective, but could it be used?

Could you please let me know if I'm in a fertile stage of my cycle? My periods tend to come every 28-30 days. my last period started Aug 22nd and ended Aug 28th, I had intercourse on Friday 7th Sept 8am.

Thank you,
