Welcome to HCM

It is not necessary to take the pill after protected sex. The unwanted 72 pill should be taken within 72 hrs , only in case of unsafe sex or accidental leak or tear in condom .

It is a hormonal pill so regular misuse can cause disturbance in your is only an emergency measure to avoid pregnancy.

Thank you
