Study Says Morning-After Pill Proved Safe and Effective

The morning-after pill can be used as an effective means of preventing pregnancy, according to a recent study published in the New England Journal of Medicine. Researchers found that women who used the packets of hormone pills correctly had no side effects compared to those who had to go through their physicians.

Last year the FDA approved six different types of birth control pills for use as a safe and effective morning-after pill. Pills packaged for emergency use are currently available by prescription to women in England and several other countries.
