What can you do you prevent pregnancy when that "protection device" doesn't do its job?
I came across this article today and would like to share it with the women out there ...

6 Things You Need to Know About the Morning-After Pill

Emergency contraception use is on the rise. Read up on it now to be better prepared for a crisis

The 6 things are:

1. There’s more than one option
Pills- Plan B and Plan B One-Step (the one-pill dose), which is available over-the-counter for women 17 and older.
2. inserting a copper IUD up to five days after unprotected sex can also prevent pregnancy.
3. You have (a little) time- 72 hours may sound like a long time
4. Your period could be different
Don’t be shocked if your flow is a little off during the month that you take EC
5. It shouldn’t replace birth control
There’s a reason why this isn’t called Plan A—it’s not meant to be used as your regular birth control method.
6. The pharmacist could shut you down
This may sound crazy, but several states have laws that allow pharmacies or individual pharmacists to refuse to sell you emergency contraception, according to the Guttmacher Institute.
