Should I use emergency contraceptive pills? I see the ads all the time. I am planning to have intercourse with my boyfriend soon.
It is called Emergency contraception which means it should be used only in an emergency. You have not had intercourse yet so please use a condom.
I would like to remind you that unprotected sex can be very risky, because it can lead to unwanted pregnancy and spread of sexually transmitted infections.
Emergency pills provide no protection against infections. It also has a 42% failure rate, which implies it doesn’t always work.
It also causes side effects such as:
• Abdominal pain
• Period changes
Therefore, please use a condom. It is safe, cheap and shall protect you from sexual transmitted infections.
