Simply take 1 pill within 5 days of having unprotected sex or birth control failure. However, it is recommended that you take emergency contraception pills ASAP because most methods do not work as well after ovulation occurs (this is when the egg pops out of the ovary). The sooner you take New Day, the better it will work.
My Way has 1.5 milligrams of Levonorgestrel. This is a progesterone hormone used in lower doses in many birth control pills.
Some side effects reported by women who used My Way are nausea, lower abdominal cramps, tiredness, headache, dizziness, breast tenderness, vomiting, and a period that is ealy, latte, lighter or heavier.
Some women may experience changes in their period after taking My Way. If your period is more than one week late, we recommend you take a pregnancy test and follow up with your primary care provider since it’s possible you might be pregnant.
My Way is pretty easy to get. It should be available at most grocery stores or pharmacies and you can get it without a prescription
My Way and its generics are about 85% effective at preventing pregnancies. That means around 7 out of 8 people who take it as directed will not become pregnant. Taking it after 72 hours of unprotected sex also lowers its effectiveness.
My Way price is an affordable emergency contraceptive, being about $21 the pack.
My Way is a single pill that needs to be taken within 72 hours (3 days) of having unprotected sex. The sooner it is taken, the better the medication will work.
You should take My Way or any of its generics every time you had unprotected sex, the birth control method you were using failed, or you forgot to take birth control. Examples are:
You can take My Way every time you have an oopsie. We don’t recommend using it on a regular basis since other birth control methods are more effective (IUD, Pill, Ring, Patch, Shot) and do not cause the side effects that My Way do (spotting, nauseas). Using My Way can also change your period cycle and if you use My Way often, that will make it harder to keep track of when your period is due. My Way should be used only for emergencies and not as a regular birth control.
