Sorry,a follow up question to the previous. Will the morning after pill prevent fertilization/implantation in the egg knowing that they are ovulating?

If an egg is already there, the morning after pill doesn't prevent fertilization or implantation. The good news is that the egg is viable for a short time, not days and days. Best wishes! ...Read more
