Ask your Dr: Here's info on this medication - there are various names. You need to ask the Dr who prescribed it for your specific case. Don't use this instead of protection in the future but as a emergency pill it can be fine. Be w/ someone you trust to help if you feel bad.

Ask yourself what will happen if you don't take it. Ask your family doctor and/or OB about your (other) options. And while you're talking to them, get a prescription for birth control that you're willing to use to prevent a similar situation in the future. ...Read more
