PILL 72 – Emergency Contraception within 72 hours

Each year there are some 175 million pregnancies of which approximately half are unintended. Unintended pregnancy has many social, personal and financial consequences. A woman faces difficult decisions including termination of the pregnancy, bearing and then relinquishing the child to others, and absence of emotional and financial support. One way of reducing unplanned pregnancies among women is to increase the knowledge of emergency contraception in the form of Pill 72.

Emergency contraception is a way to prevent pregnancy after unprotected intercourse (such as intercourse without contraception or when a contraceptive fails). Pill 72 contains levonorgestrel (progestin - only tablet) specifically developed for post-coital contraception.

Each Pill 72 (levonorgestrel) packet includes a single course of treatment and consists of two tablets. The first tablet should be taken as soon as possible within 72 hours (3 days) of unprotected intercourse. The second tablet must be taken 12 hours after the first dose.

However, it is strongly recommended that these pills be consumed under guidance of the patient’s doctor.
