Known or suspected pregnancy
Hypersensitivity to any component of the product
Existing Pregnancy: My Way is not effective in terminating an existing pregnancy.
Ectopic Pregnancy: These account for approximately 2% of all reported pregnancies. Up to 10% of pregnancies reported in clinical studies involving the routine use of progestin-only contraceptives are ectopic. A history of ectopic pregnancy is not a contraindication to use this emergency contraceptive method. Healthcare providers, however, should consider the possibility of an ectopic pregnancy in women who become pregnant or complain of lower abdominal pain after taking My Way. A follow-up physical or pelvic examination is recommended if there is any doubt concerning the general health or pregnancy of any woman after taking My Way.
Effects on Menses: Some women may experience spotting a few days after taking My Way. Menstrual bleeding patterns are often irregular among women using progestin-only oral contraceptives and women using levonorgestrel for post-coital and emergency contraception. If there is a delay in the onset of expected menses beyond 1 week, consider the possibility of pregnancy.
STI/HIV: My Way does not protect against HIV infection (AIDS) or other sexually transmitted infections (STIs).
Physical Examination and Follow-up: A physical examination is not required prior to prescribing My Way. A follow-up physical or pelvic examination is recommended if there is any doubt concerning the general health or pregnancy status of any woman after taking My Way.
Fertility Following Discontinuation: A rapid return to fertility is likely following the taking of My Way for emergency contraception; therefore, routine contraception should be continued or initiated as soon as possible following the use of My Way to ensure ongoing prevention of pregnancy.
