MORNING AFTER- regular BC?

I know if you take REGULAR BC pills the morning after unprotected sex, it works the same as the prescribed 'morning after pill"..

My question is: How many BC pills should I take? I took 5 today.. is that enough?

Only CERTAIN birth control pills can be used as emergency contraception. What brand are you taking? They must contain a certain progestin to work in the way you want them too.

WOW!5? I think you shouldn't have taken that many. You're going to make yourself sick. My advise...HONESTLY...contact the poison control center. When it's the morning after pill it's a certain pill and you take 2 and then 2 12 hours later. You took too many. I hope everything is ok...so my question is why did you take that many? why did you need them? Are you on birth control?

Re: MORNING AFTER- regular BC?

OTC isn't one that you can use for Emergency contraception. Only pills containing levonorgestrel can be used. Do NOT take any more. Taking that many pills without consulting a doctor or nurse is very dangerous.

Go to your doctor, and see if maybe they'll prescribe the Morning After Pill. However, they may be reluctant to do so, given how many pills you just took.
