How Guard Pill Tablet works

Guard Pill 1.5mg Tablet is a progestin (female hormones).

Patient Concerns

Frequently asked questions about Guard Pill Tablet

Frequently asked questions about Levonorgestrel

Q. How effective is Guard pill?
The sooner you take Guard pill, the more effective it is. Guard pill significantly reduces your chances of becoming pregnant if used within 72 hours (3 days) after unprotected sex or contraceptive failure.
Q. Is a pregnancy test required after taking Guard pill?
Although Guard pill significantly reduces your chances of pregnancy, if your periods are delayed by more than a week, a pregnancy test is recommended. However, if you decide on continuing the pregnancy, you may do so as Guard pill does not work if pregnancy has already been established. Guard pill does not cause harm to the foetus.
Q. Can Guard pill be taken for regular birth control?
No. Guard pill is not indicated for regular birth control. It is used only as an emergency measure after unprotected sex or contraceptive failure.
Q. How often can I use Guard pill?
Guard pill can be taken more than once in a month but it is advised only for emergency contraception. Keep using regular contraception like condoms, regular birth control pills, IUDs etc. for avoiding unwanted pregnancy.
Q. Can Guard pill protect against Sexually Transmitted Disease (STDs) and HIV / AIDS?
No. Guard pill does not offer any protection from HIV / AIDS or other Sexually Transmitted Disease (STDs). You can use condoms to protect yourself from STDs and HIV / AIDS.
Q. What is the difference between 'emergency contraceptive pill' and 'abortion pill'?
Pregnancy starts once the fertilized egg gets attached to the lining of the uterus (womb). Abortion pills contain medicine, which hinders the development of a pregnancy after it has occurred and also alters the character of the womb lining in a way that the fertilized egg gets detached, hence causing abortion. On the other hand, emergency contraceptive pills like Guard pill contain female hormones which delay the release of egg or prevent movement of sperm towards the egg. This prevents fertilization and hence pregnancy. Guard pill does not have any effect on a fertilized egg and hence does not cause abortion.
Q. Is Guard pill effective if frequent acts of intercourse have occurred in a short duration of time?
Yes. Guard pill is effective if you have had several acts of intercourse in a short span of time. However, it is important that these acts have occurred within 72 hours before taking Guard pill. Also, since there is a chance of unintended pregnancy after frequent acts of unprotected sex in the same cycle, it is advisable to use a barrier contraceptive method (e.g. condom) until the next period even after using Guard pill.
