Hi Anon 

Thank you for your post!

Emergency contraceptives are up to 95% effective when taken as prescribed within the first 24 hours and up to 90% effective if taken within 72 hours, so the risk is very small. It works by preventing ovulation and stopping a pregnancy from starting. It is not an abortion pill. It prevents a pregnancy, it does not end one. Side effects can include stomach aches, headaches, dizziness, breast pain, nausea and a general feeling of being unwell.  Some women can bleed a little or quite extensively after taking emergency contraception.

The more frequently they are taken, the more likely a woman is  to have side effects and an irregular cycle. They should be taken only for emergencies, not used as a method of birth control.
