About i-pill

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.
