Emergency contraception is NOT a regular method of birth control. Emergency contraception is usually used after no birth control was used during sex, or if the birth control method failed, such as if a condom broke. It is possible to prevent pregnancy after unprotected sex or if contraception has failed, either with a pill or an IUD. There is a five-day window for this, but the sooner the method is used, the better they will work.Β
