Norlevo Effectiveness after 72 Hours
Please would you let me know the basic effectiveness of the Norlevo "Emergency" contraception pill after 72 hours. Also, what other measures can be taken within, say, a week of unprtected sexual intercourse to prevent pregnancy. What is the Abortion Pill? and is it readily available?

Many Thanks.

Norlevo is not effective after 72 hours.

The "abprtion pill" is only available after a doctor has examined you, scanned you to make sure that the pregancy isn't in the tubes (ectopic) and the pregnancy is less than 7 weeks.

Aren't you jumping the gun here, should you not first have a pregnancy test first?
