Unwanted 72 is a popular emergency contraceptive pill that is used to prevent pregnancy after unprotected sex. It is also known as the ‘morning-after pill.’
It is a combination of two hormonal drugs, levonorgestrel, and Ethinyl estradiol, which work together to stop the release of an egg from the ovary. It contains 0.75 mg of the hormone levonorgestrel. Unwanted 72 can be taken up to 72 hours after unprotected sex, but it is more effective the sooner you take it.
Although it is highly effective when used correctly, there are some side effects that you should be aware of before taking this medication. In this blog post, we will discuss the side effects of unwanted 72 and what you need to know before taking it.
Uses of unwanted 72
Unwanted 72 is most commonly used as an emergency contraception pill. It can be taken up to 72 hours after unprotected sex or a contraceptive failure. The sooner it is taken, the more effective it is.
It can also be used to manage heavy or painful periods. It works by thinning the lining of the womb, which can help to reduce bleeding.
How does unwanted 72 work?
The morning-after pill is a high dose of levonorgestrel, a synthetic progestin hormone, which is similar to the progesterone our bodies naturally produce.
When taken within 72 hours of unprotected sex, levonorgestrel can prevent pregnancy by delaying or inhibiting ovulation (the release of an egg from the ovaries). It may also work by altering the lining of the uterus or by preventing implantation and preventing fertilization of an egg by sperm.
When should I take unwanted 72?
If you had sex recently and could not use any other form of birth control, the condom broke or slipped off after your partner ejaculated, and your partner didn’t pull out in time, incorrect use of contraceptives, you were forced to have unprotected sex, you can use an emergency contraception method to prevent pregnancy.
