My Choice® (Levonorgestrel 1.5 mg) is a single-dose emergency contraceptive pill that helps prevent pregnancy when taken within 72 hours of unprotected sex.
Levonorgestrel is the same active ingredient as in regular birth control pills with this ingredient—just at a single, higher dose, and works by delaying ovulation.
The sooner you take emergency contraception, the more effective it is. You should use the My Choice® Emergency Contraceptive (EC) pill within 72 hours (3 days) after unprotected sex.
The My Choice® EC pill is a backup or emergency method, and not a replacement method, of birth control you can use when:
- Your regular birth control was used incorrectly or failed
- You did not use any birth control method
