Once a friend had to take the morning after pill. I remember those terrible days, when he was sorry for everything. First, for not having taken the necessary precautions. And second, because of the effects the pill had on his body. During several days it was a whirlwind of emotional ups and downs. Depressed and in pain, she told me: 'it is as if a bomb has exploded inside me'. That's why, because of her, because of everything she told me, I can't understand that a woman can drink that explosive cocktail on a regular basis.

The day after pill is an emergency contraceptive method. It should never be taken on a regular basis, but only in exceptional cases. It is used when a coital relationship has occurred and all possible contraceptive methods have failed (the woman forgot to take the contraceptive pill or the condom was broken ...), so there is a risk of unwanted pregnancy.

The morning after pill acts immediately on ovulation. Get it delayed. As well can alter the movement of sperm, which reduces the chances of pregnancy. However, there are many voices against this pill, as they consider it abortifacient. For this they argue that what this pill achieves is to avoid the implantation of the embryo, something that has been denied by different medical establishments.

The morning-after pill should be taken within the first 24 hours after having sex. From that moment on, its effectiveness decreases and falls from 95% to 85%. It is made up of a synthetic steroid or a mixture of progesterone or estrogens.

The morning after pill contains a very high concentration of hormones. This causes in women an imbalance in your reproductive system. It is not without side effects. Among them:

- Nausea and vomiting

- Delayed menstruation

- Fatigue, dizziness and headache

- Irregular bleeding

There are not enough studies yet to explain the long-term effects of continued use of this pill. But even so, the doctors insist: it should never be used regularly, but only and exclusively in an emergency.
