Hi XXXXXXX
Welcome to healthcare Magic!
You can take the morning after pill or the method called emergency contraception.
You should take the Norgestrel containing tablets course.
Take one 750micrograms tab stat and take one more at 12 hours later.
It provides full protection if taken within 72 hours.
PILL72 or ECEE72 are two good preparation in India.
I hope the advise would be informative and useful for you.
Take Care!

Hi.. I was on my period 2 weeks ago and and I had sex last week monday and a few hours later I took levonelle 1500
the thing is that my parents are not aware that ive taken the medicine and are suspicious so they want me to do a blood test next monday... I just want to know that how long does the medicine stay in the body and if they will be able to find out if I took the contraceptive medicine or not through a blood test?

Hi me and my wife had unprotected sex yesterday, She had her period on 18th and was over on 22nd June We tried to look up for emergency pills here in UAE and couldnt find any. Most of the contraceptive pills here are based on drospirenone and ethinyloestradiol Would taking multiple tablets of those give the same effect. as emergency pills?
