When do I need to use emergency contraceptives?

If you have sex without a condom or if the condom breaks, slips, or falls off.

If you have sex and have missed more than 2 days (48 hours) in a row of your combined hormonal contraceptives (pill, patch, or ring).

If you have sex and are more than 3 hours late taking the progesterone only pill.
