When do I need to use emergency contraceptives?

You should use emergency contraception for pregnancy protection if:

  • You have sex without a condom or if the condom breaks, slips, or falls off.
  • You have sex and have missed more than 2 days (48 hours) in a row of your combined hormonal contraceptives (pill, patch, or ring).
  • You have sex and are more than 3 hours late taking the progesterone only pill.
