  • Pills that contain a progestin alone, or a progestin and an estrogen together—hormones like the natural hormones progesterone and estrogen in a woman’s body.
  • Emergency contraceptive pills (ECPs) are sometimes called “morning after” pills or postcoital contraceptives.
  • Work primarily by preventing or delaying the release of eggs from the ovaries (ovulation). They do not work if a woman is already pregnant.
