Contraceptive methods to avoid an unwanted pregnancy

9 Jul 2020

After an interruption of unwanted pregnancy, if you do not use adequate contraceptive measures there is a risk of becoming pregnant again.
It is important to consult with your doctor, since according to each case, you can advise him which contraceptive method is better and when you can start to use it.

When opting for a pharmacological interruption, after the first control, in which it is confirmed by ultrasound that the method has been effective, the use of a hormonal contraceptive is indicated to regulate the menstrual cycle. In the case of a surgical interruption, the same treatment is indicated on the day of the intervention.

It is important to know that the post-coital pill or pill the day after has to be used not as a contraceptive method but in case of failure of the usual contraceptive method.

The patient who wishes to continue with this method of contraception should only start a new blister after 7 days of rest.
