Quoting Captain Obvious:" it CAN prevent a fertilized egg from implanting though, just as any hormonal birth control can."

Quoting Captain Obvious:" that's exactly it. i've informed so many women on here that hormonal bc can prevent a fertilized egg from implanting. they were shocked."


I know it's stupid, but if I think about it... like the potential little humans we could have created, it kinda makes me sad... :oops: Lol.

DH is getting a vasectomy anyway :D. I don't like hormonal BC for other reasons... I'm estrogen/progesterone receptive, so I just don't want to run the risk of breast cancer (which runs in my family)... plus, it makes me fat. Lol.

I hate BC also I've only taken it for three years combined in my life but when I have this baby, which is a birth control baby lol, I'm having my tubes tied. So I'll never have to take it again.

I am pro-choice. I couldn't have an abortion myself (well, I've never been in that situation so I can't say for certain but I don't believe I would). I however do not understand why those who are pro-life would be against the morning after pill. Many BC pills can be used as Morning After Pills if you take more than one (exact dosages can be found online).
However, I also don't understand how those who are against birth control in general, see it as any different than pulling out or natural family planning (which is what many couples who are against the BC pill morally, practice). Either way it is still a prevention of a conception that would have ultimately be a life. If you are against the BC pill on the basis of your moral beliefs, you should only be having sex for reproduction purposes. That's just my opinion, but I really don't see a difference between NFP and the BC pill, morally.

The difference is, with NFP no eggs can be fertilized, and if they accidentally are nothing is stopping them from implanting.

They don't understand what emergency contraceptive is. Simple as that.

I'm pro-life but I'm not against the morning after pill. From my understanding, if the egg is already fertilized it doesn't do anything? Or implanted in the wall or something?
Anyway, I'm aware it's not the abortion pill, just an expensive emergency BC pill.

Hormonal contraceptives (the pill, the patch, and the vaginal ring) all contain a small amount of man-made estrogen and progestin hormones. These hormones work to inhibit the body's natural cyclical hormones to prevent pregnancy. Pregnancy is prevented by a combination of factors. The hormonal contraceptive usually stops the body from ovulating. Hormonal contraceptives also change the cervical mucus to make it difficult for the sperm to find an egg. Hormonal contraceptives can also prevent pregnancy by making the lining of the womb inhospitable for implantation.
