MARVELON for Unwanted Pregnancy As Emergency Pills


I would like to hear from you the correct answer of my inquiry.

We have contacted with my husband on Dec. 19, 2014 at 1am.

I'm not sure if i was fertile on that time.

My 1st Mentruation was on Dec. 2, 2014 and end until Dec. 5, 2015

I took MARVELON Pill 4 tabs on Dec. 21, 2014 Sunday at 10:30pm, and took another 4 tabs after the following 12 hours on Dec. 22, 2014 Monday.

Hi There,

Marvelon does not act as an emergency contraceptive. There is a risk you could be pregnant you should seek help today from a GP or contraceptive clinic, as they may be able to give you EllaOne or fit an emergency copper coil (up to 5 days after unprotected sex).

This link takes you to more information of where to find services and about the different types of emergency contraception available.

If your next period is later, lighter or shorter tkae a pregnancy test to exclude pregnancy.

Best Wishes
