What is My Way®

My Way is emergency contraception pill 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 the consumer is already pregnant. (My Way 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 infections. It is important to use another reliable source of birth control that is right for the consumer. My Way will not protect the consumer from HIV infection (the virus that causes AIDS) and other sexually transmitted infections.

When should someone use My Way®?

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

Their birth control method was used incorrectly or failed (their partner's condom broke or slipped).

They made a mistake with their regular method.

They did not use any birth control method.

When is it not appropriate to use My Way®?

My Way should not be used as a regular birth control method. 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 the consumer is already pregnant because it will not work.

My Way should not be used if the consumer is allergic to levonorgestrel or any other ingredients in My Way.

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