What they found: One in four pills wasn’t actually emergency contraception at all.
It lasts up to 5 days (120 hours) after unprotected sex. If your country doesn't carry ella One, copper IUDs may also prevent pregnancy up to 5 days after unprotected sex.
If none of these options are available, and it's been over 3 days since you had unprotected sex, you can still take EC, which may work up to 5 days.
Note that EC pills are not 100% effective and should be taken as soon as possible.
For dedicated EC that is progestin-only, you can find tons of brands in Peru: Dia S MP, Glanique 1, Impreviat, Postinor 1 (Take 1 pill within 120 hours after unprotected sex).
Always look at your medicine and check the expiration date anyways." Be careful: Public Hospitals: Peru has banned the distribution of EC in public hospitals. As reported by teh Center for Reproductive Rights in May 2016: "Peru’s ban on the distribution of emergency contraception in public hospitals denied a rape survivor access to essential medical treatment following her assault, according to a new case filed in the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) – a principal human rights body for the Americas....
Peru has the highest reported rate of rape in South America, yet in 2009, Peru’s Constitutional Tribunal ordered the Ministry of Health to stop distributing emergency contraception in public hospitals, wrongfully claiming the medicine induces abortion and that the government therefore cannot distribute it through public institutions." Note: The longest-lasting EC is currently ella One.
There are some menstrual cups available for purchase in Lima, and many medications are available as well.
Peru is also one of the few countries that have Pr EP trials in place.
There's also Anulette, Famila-28, Lo-Femenal, Microgynon, Minigynon, Nordette and Rigevidon 21 7 (Take 4 pills within 120 hours after unprotected sex and take 4 more pills 12 hours later).
And there's also Loette Suave (Take 5 pills within 120 hours after unprotected sex and take 5 more pills 12 hours later).
