Taking the 2 pills the next day is wrong? Cut short?

Expert answer:

Take the next two pills the next day does not hurt and does not cut the effect.

There are two morning pill options:

- 1 tablet of 1.5 mg

- 2 tablets of 0.75 mg each.

For the pills that come in 2 tablets it is recommended take the 2 tablets at once. There is possibility to take 1 tablet and after 12 hours of interval take the other. As the woman may forget to take the second pill, it is recommended to take the 2 together. This will not affect the effect of the medication or change the possible side effects.

The morning after pill is a emergency contraception method and should be used within 72 hours after unprotected intercourse.

If you want a long-term method of birth control, seek a family doctor or gynecologist to advise you on the best method for you.
