My Way is an FDA-approved, progestin-only emergency contraceptive tablet (levonorgestrel, 1.5mg) indicated for prevention of pregnancy following unprotected intercourse or a known or suspected contraceptive failure. 1
My Way is indicated within 72 hours (3 days) after contraceptive failure or unprotected sex.1
My Way has proven to reduce the risk of pregnancy by as much as 89% when taken as indicated, preventing seven out of eight pregnancies that would have occurred. 1
My Way is available at pharmacies behind the counter for women 17 years and older, and is prescription-only for women younger than 17 years of age.
My Way has a better safety profile than the previously established levonorgestrel and ethinyl
estradiol (Yuzpe) regimen.1
My Way should not be used as regular birth control. It is important to have another reliable source of birth control.
My Way will not work if the patient is already pregnant and will not affect an existing pregnancy.
My Way will not protect from HIV infection and other sexually transmitted infections.
