What should I do if it still goes wrong?

There are different reasons for why it may go wrong. The most frequent causes are:

  • The first intercourse where young people are not properly prepared and go through with intercourse without protection
  • Unprotected intercourse with couples that normally use a condom, diaphragm or disconnected intercourse
  • The condom broke or semen ‘leaked’ when the condom was removed
  • Forgot to take more than one pill from the same package
  • Following a sexual crime

If it goes wrong there are different methods that can prevent an unwanted pregnancy. It concerns the morning-after pill and putting a coil in place.
