i had sex. i had my last period on may 2nd and according to my fertility calendar im at the peak of my ovulation. i still went ahead and took the next choice. im worried that my egg has already been released. we used a condom but it slipped off. im not sure that cum went in but im worried and i have two weeks to wait it out. i just wanted to put my mind at ease.

Hello Anonymous,

According to the product website, mynextchoice.com, " Next Choice prevents a pregnancy the same way that a birth control pill does. It is believed that Next Choice prevents the egg from being (1) released from the ovary (ovulation), (2) fertilized by the sperm (fertilization), or (3) attached to the uterus (implantation). Implantation occurs about 7 days after ovulation.

Next Choice contains levonorgestrel, a hormone used in birth control pills for over 35 years. The dose of the levonorgestrel in Next Choice is higher than in a single birth control pill. It is proven safe. When taken as directed, it will not have an effect on an existing pregnancy."

I hope this information puts your mind at ease.
