Hi Anon!

Thanks for your post!

I don't know what you mean by you are supposed to use the pill 6 months later.

Emergency contraception is up to 95% effective when taken within 24 hours. If you did this then pregnancy is very unlikely. If you can get emergency contraception, you can get condoms, this is a much better method of ensuring you don't get pregnant.

Hello again

There is no rule about only taking it every 6 months although it's a pretty good guideline. Essentially it's for real emergencies only, in the case of unwanted sex or a condom break etc. It's not meant for "don't want to use a condom so she has to take emergency pills after" kind of sex, which we see all too often. Or plain old laziness.

Emergency contraceptives do not affect a woman's chance of getting pregnant when she is ready. Don't believe half the things you hear.
