Lydia Postpil is not an abortion pill - rather, it is simply an option for women to use “just in case.”
Post pills are a good option for women who do not have sex frequently, for when a contraceptive failure is known or suspected to fail (like when a condom breaks, or when a woman missed taking her regular pill), or when a woman is forced into having sex (rape).
Prevention of pregnancy following unprotected intercourse. It can be used by women of all reproductive ages including adolescents.
Mechanism of Action
Lydia Postpil mainly acts by preventing the release of an egg (ovulation) or by stopping the egg and sperm from meeting (fertilization). Postpill may inhibit implantation by altering the endometrium but is not effective once the process of implantation has begun.
