Learn all you can about family planning before starting a family

Family Planning - anticipate and attain the desired number of childrenFamily planning allows individuals and couples to anticipate and attain their desired number of children and the spacing and timing of their births. It is achieved through use of contraceptive methods and the treatment of involuntary infertility. A woman’s ability to space and limit her pregnancies has a direct impact on her health and well-being as well as on the outcome of each pregnancy.  – World Health Organization

The leading resource to learn about Emergency Contraception information.

“Emergency contraception is birth control that prevents pregnancy after sex, which is why it is sometimes called “the morning after pill,” “the day after pill,” or “morning after contraception.” You can use emergency contraception right away – or up to 5 days after sex – if you think your birth control failed, you didn’t use contraception, or you were forced to have sex.”
