Emergency contraception, also known as the 'morning-after-pill' are drugs intended to prevent ovulation or fertilisation. You typically need to take them in one or two doses a maximum of 72 hours after intercourse. They contain large doses of progestin, also found in the normal pill, though it is much more concentrated here. Emergency contraception is for just that - emergencies. They cannot be used as regular protection.
