Contraception the morning after...
This is an article by the sydney morning herald relating to the emergency contraceptive pill.The emergency contraceptive pill itself is a 1.5 mg dose of levonorgestrel which has been used in the past 50 years for normal contraceptive pills in Australia.
The emergency contraceptive pill basically works by stopping or postponing the release of an egg from the ovary. Furthermore the pill doesn't have any harmful repurcussions such as cancer,stroke,blood clots and fertility problems, nor does the new emergency pill have side effects such as nausea or vomiting compared to the previous version of the emergency pill.
This article basically highlights the fact that most women are misinformed or unaware about the emergency pill including the fact that this pill can be obtained unprescribed. In addition this article also informs us more about this new method of contraception which include the fact that it can be effective 96 hours even after intercourse and it's very safe and has a low failure rate.
This article relates to the topic of contraception currently being studied in PDHPE class and also their effectiveness. I believe this article is quite informative and is useful for teenagers to know in advance before their sexual decision making in the future.
