Is there a way to prevent pregnancy after unprotected sexual intercourse?

Taking emergency contraceptive pills up to 72 hours after unprotected sex, can help prevent pregnancy. Take it as soon as possible.

The contraceptives are safe for all women to use, but it’s not recommended as regular form of contraception. Contraceptives can be purchased in pharmacies, clinics and public health facilities.

Taking these pills will not affect any existing pregnancy.
