What is My Way®

My Way is emergency contraception that helps prevent pregnancy after birth control failure or unprotected sex. It is a backup method of preventing pregnancy and is not to be used routinely.

What My Way® is not.

My Way will not work if you are already pregnant. (It will not terminate or affect an existing pregnancy.) My Way should not be used as a substitute for birth control methods or as protection from sexually transmitted diseases. It is important to use another reliable source of birth control that is right for you. My Way will not protect you from HIV infection (the virus that causes AIDS) and other sexually transmitted infections.

When should I use My Way®?

You can use My Way if you have had unprotected sex within the last 72 hours (3 days), and you do not want to become pregnant. My Way can be used as a backup or emergency method to birth control if, for example:

Your birth control method was used incorrectly or failed (your partner's condom broke or slipped)

You made a mistake with your regular method

You did not use any birth control method

When is it not appropriate to use My Way®?

My Way should not to be used as a substitute for birth control methods or as protection from sexually transmitted infections. It does not work as well as most other forms of birth control when they are used consistently and correctly.

My Way should not be used if you are already pregnant because it will not work.

My Way should not be used if you are allergic to levonorgestrel or any other ingredients in My Way (You may want to show your doctor the ingredients in My Way to be sure it is right for you.)

My Way does not protect against HIV (the virus that causes AIDS) or other sexually transmitted infections (STIs). The best ways to protect yourself against getting HIV or other STIs are to use a latex condom correctly with every sexual act or not to have sex at all.
