What is AFTERA ® ?

AFTERA 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 AFTERA is not.

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

When should I use AFTERA?

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

AFTERA 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 AFTERA.

AFTERA should not be used:

• as a regular birth control method, because it’s not as effective as regular birth control.

• if you are already pregnant, because it will not work.

• if you are allergic to levonorgestrel or any other ingredients in AFTERA.

When should I talk to a doctor or pharmacist?

Ask a doctor or pharmacist before use if you are taking efavirenz (HIV medication) or rifampin (tuberculosis treatment) or medication for seizures (epilepsy). These medications may reduce the effectiveness of AFTERA 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 AFTERA work?

AFTERA is one tablet with levonorgestrel, a hormone that has been used in many birth control pills for several decades. AFTERA 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 AFTERA 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).

How can I get the best results from AFTERA?

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

How effective is AFTERA?

If AFTERA is taken as directed, it can significantly decrease the chance that you will get pregnant. About 7 out of every 8 women who would have gotten pregnant will not become pregnant.

How will I know AFTERA worked?

You will know AFTERA 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?
