Hi everybody! I am Melanie Raposo and welcome to Mommy's Minute. Well, many forms of birth control are very effective; there is always the chance that they can fail. If your contraception has failed, you may want to consider taking an emergency contraceptive. The emergency contraceptive pill, also known as Plan B, contains high doses of hormones to prevent ovulation. It will not cause an abortion and it cannot not affect an egg that is already fertilized. Take it within 72 hours of unprotected sex. ECP is 75-89% effective. To learn more about other methods of birth control, visit thepregnancyshow.com.
