Decreases risk: Anyone having intercourse without birth control or condoms may get pregnant. Using emergency contraception decreases the risk. It is a high dose of birth control to disrupt the hormonal patterns to delay or prevent ovulation. Abnormal bleeding after is common. Check preg test in 10 days.
