    Fem ChoiceTM morning after is emergency contraception that helps prevent pregnancy after birth control failure or unprotected sex. It is a backup method of preventing pregnancy and should not be used as regular birth control.


    What Fem ChoiceTM morning after is not.

    Fem ChoiceTM morning after will not work if you are already pregnant and will not affect an existing pregnancy. Fem ChoiceTM morning after will not protect you from HIV infection (the virus that causes AIDS) and other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).


    When should I use Fem ChoiceTM morning after?

    The sooner you take emergency contraception, the better it works. You should use Fem ChoiceTM morning after within 72 hours (3 days) after you have had unprotected sex.


    Fem ChoiceTM morning after is a backup or emergency method of birth control you can use when:

    • your regular birth control was used incorrectly or failed
    • you did not use any birth control method

    When not to use Fem ChoiceTM morning after.

    Fem ChoiceTM morning after should not be used:

These medications may reduce the effectiveness of Fem ChoiceTM morning after and increase your chance of becoming pregnant. Your doctor may prescribe another form of emergency contraception that may not be affected by these medications.


    How does Fem ChoiceTM morning after work?

    Fem ChoiceTM morning after is one tablet with levonorgestrel, a hormone that has been used in many birth control pills for several decades. Fem ChoiceTM morning after contains a higher dose of levonorgestrel than birth control pills, but works in a similar way to prevent pregnancy. It works mainly by stopping the release of an egg from the ovary. It is possible that Fem ChoiceTM morning after may also work by preventing fertilization of an egg (the uniting of sperm with the egg) or by preventing attachment (implantation) to the uterus (womb).

    You have 72 hours (3 days) to try to prevent pregnancy after birth control failure or unprotected sex. The sooner you take Fem ChoiceTM morning after, the better it works.

    You will know Fem ChoiceTM morning after has been effective when you get your next period, which should come at the expected time, or within a week of the expected time. If your period is delayed beyond 1 week, it is possible you may be pregnant. You should get a pregnancy test and follow up with your healthcare professional.


    Will I experience any side effects?

    • some women may have changes in their period, such as a period that is heavier or lighter or a period that is early or late. If your period is more than a week late, you may be pregnant.
    • if you have severe abdominal pain, you may have an ectopic pregnancy, and should get immediate medical attention.
