Sex Advice

Dear Dr. Locker: Can't women just take a few extra birth control pills in order to have the same effect as the morning after pill?

Answer from Dr. Locker

Yes, but it depends which pills, how many, and when you take them. Also, this should be directed by a medical doctor. For more info, on the Planned Parenthood web site there is a chart that explains this in more detail.

Also, for more info, you can read more about Plan B/Emergency Contraception/The morning after pill on my blog.
