Difference between birth control pill and morning after pill

Attention! The “morning after pill” is not a birth control method. We encounter many patients who make this mistake; you don’t! Pharmacist Ceren Dirin Ağırdil, who we know as @eczadolabim, explains the differences between the two drugs.

Contraception drugs

  • It is a method that provides up to 99% birth control when used regularly every day.
  • These drugs contain estrogen and progestan, preventing the release of eggs from the ovary.
  • It thickens the mucus layer in the cervix and prevents the sperm from reaching the egg.
  • Not all birth control pills are the same, they differ from each other with their properties and ingredients.
  • You can start the medication by consulting your doctor.
  • The effect decreases when the instructions for use are not followed or forgotten.

The morning-after pill

  • It is a pill used only in emergencies.
  • These are drugs that contain much higher levels of hormones in a single tablet than are found in birth control pills.
  • They can prevent the fertilized egg from implanting in the uterus by thinning the inner layer of the uterus.
  • Should be taken as soon as possible (most effective within the first 12 hours) after unprotected intercourse.
  • Pre-relationship use is not effective.
  • Due to its high hormone content, it is not a regular method of contraception; not used every day.
  • Use more than once a month is not recommended.
  • If regular and safe contraception is required, contraception should be used.
