A Quick Understanding About the Pill

Unplanned pregnancies can arise due to various reasons, from contraceptive failure to unprotected sex. The pill offers a solution for those unexpected moments, providing a safe and effective way to prevent unwanted pregnancies. 

How Does it Work?

The pill or emergency contraceptive pill contains hormones or interfere with hormones to lower pregnancy risk. It primarily works by delaying ovulation or preventing fertilisation of the egg. It is important to note that the pill is not an abortion pill. 

The morning after pill cannot reverse a pregnancy that has already started. It only creates an unfriendly environment in a woman’s body to reduce the chances for fertilisation to happen. If a fertilised egg has already implanted itself in the uterus, the pill will not interfere with or harm the pregnancy. 

How to Use it

Take the morning after pill as soon as possible after unprotected sex. The sooner you take the pill after unprotected sex, the more effective it is in preventing pregnancy. There are only two brands of the pill or emergency contraception pill registered with the HSA in Singapore:

Postinor-2 (Levonorgestrel): Also known as Plan B, treatment consists of TWO pills. Take both pills as soon as possible, within 72 hours (3 days) after unprotected sex.

We answer all your questions about Postinor-2 (levonorgestrel) or Plan B here. 

Ella (Ulipristal Acetate): Treatment consists of ONE emergency pill .The pill should be taken as soon as possible, within 120 hours (5 days) after unprotected sex.  

Side Effects and Safety Considerations

The morning after pill like Postinor-2 or Plan B are generally safe for most women. Nausea and vomiting are the most common side effects of the pill. However, these symptoms are usually mild and go away in one or two days. If you vomit within 3 hours of taking the pill, your medication may not be as effective. At Dame, we are always prepared for the unexpected. If this happens, contact our support team for the need for an additional dose of the medication. 

Contrary to popular belief, there is no evidence to suggest that emergency contraception like the morning after pill leads to infertility. The pill temporarily serves as a short-term method that does not affect future fertility.

Challenges in Accessing the Morning After Pill in Singapore

In Singapore, the morning after pill is not available over the counter. You need a valid doctor’s prescription to obtain the pill.However, not all clinics or pharmacies keep the pill in stock. 

Time is of the essence when it comes to using the morning after pill. Unfortunately, the effectiveness of the pill in preventing pregnancy decreases with time. This means that pregnancy risk increases the longer you hesitate. Panic button alert!

It is natural to feel stressed out when facing a possible unplanned pregnancy. Women seeking the morning after pill primarily face the challenge of stigma and embarrassment associated with purchasing it. The fear of judgement from doctors or even that counter receptionist can prevent women from seeking the help they need. At Dame, we want to change that.
