How does My Choice work?
My Choice is one tablet with levonorgestrel, a hormone that has been used in many birth control pills for several decades. My Choice contains a higher dose of levonorgestrel than birth control pills, but works in a similar way to prevent pregnancy. It works mainly by stopping the release of an egg from the ovary. It is possible that My Choice may also work by preventing fertilization of an egg (the uniting of sperm with the egg) or by preventing attachment (implantation) to the uterus (womb).
How can I get the best results from My Choice?
You have 72 hours (3 days) to try to prevent pregnancy after birth control failure or unprotected sex. The sooner you take My Choice, the better it works.
How effective is My Choice?
If My Choice is taken as directed, it can significantly decrease the chance that you will get pregnant. About 7 out of every 8 women who would have gotten pregnant will not become pregnant.
How will I know My Choice worked?
You will know My Choice has been effective when you get your next period, which should come at the expected time, or within a week of the expected time.
