Anxiety, uneasiness, anger, fear, self pity, regret, loneliness, shame… there’s so much trauma one has to go through after an abortion resulting from an unwanted pregnancy. All of this could be avoided in the first place.
i-pill emergency contraceptive pill. Just one pill within 72 hours of unprotected sex is all it takes to prevent a possible pregnancy and a traumatic abortion. Because prevention is better than abortion. Isn’t it?
What is i-Pill?
i-pill is a single-pill emergency contraceptive that offers you an effective way to prevent an unplanned pregnancy.
The need for an emergency contraceptive may arise when you may be at risk of a pregnancy due to:
- Contraceptive failure
- Unprotected sex
- Improper use of your regular birth control method
- Forced sex
i-pill contains levonorgestrel – a progestogen which helps prevent the implantation of the egg in the uterus and avoids the beginning of pregnancy.
i-pill can work in any of the three different ways depending on where you may be in your menstrual cycle.
- It may stop an egg being released from the ovary.
- If an egg has been released, i-pill may prevent the sperm from fertilizing it.
- If the egg is already fertilized, it may prevent it from attaching itself to the lining of the womb.
i-pill is ineffective if the pregnancy is established (i.e. the fertilized egg has attached itself to the womb). It is therefore not an abortion pill.
