Does Lygynon can be used as an emergency contraceptive pill?

In response to this answer from Dr Chakravarthy Mazumdar, which four pills from the packet? Dr s answer: Lygynon shouldnt be used as an emergency contraceptive pill except a dire emergency since it may not work every time. You can take 4 pills as soon as possible after unprotected sex but within 72 hrs and next 4 pills after 12 hrs

Thank you for your query.
Lygynon is ideally not recommended as a contraceptive as Dr. Mazumdar has clearly and correctly informed you.
The pills are supposed to be the active ones in the pack.
However, it is best to take recommended emergency contraceptives, as they are more efficient.
Moreover, no emergency contraceptive pills can ever be a substitute for regular, safe protected method of contraception.
I would still advise you to consult a gynecologist and take medications on prescription.
take care
