How does having an IUD affect the abortion pill. I want a backup?

The pill Not needed: Iud is highly effective...For example: Mirena (levonorgestrel) touts over 99% effecacy! thus adding a morning-after pill is not needed..Benefit is next to nil..Ie..Adding a dollar to your million does not make much of a difference.

I have had unprotected sex and wondering if I can take the combined pill microgynon 30 as an emergency contraceptive pill?

Emergency contracept: In theory yes - since they both contain 150micrograms of Levonorgestrel with the microgynon also containing 30 mcg of ethynil estradiol.

You need to use it before 72 hours. Good luck. ...Read more
