Trust® Daisy 1.5 mg also known as P2 is an emergency contraceptive for prevention of pregnancy following unprotected intercourse or if you were forced into having sex (rape) or after a known or suspected contraceptive failure such as: when a condom breaks, or you missed taking your regular contraceptive pills or injections or you did not abstain from sex during your fertile period.
Mechanism of action
Trust® Daisy mainly acts by preventing the release of an egg (ovulation) or by stopping the egg and sperm from meeting (fertilization), through altering tubal transport of sperm and egg. In additional, it may inhibit implantation by altering the endometrium but it is not effective once the process of implantation has begun.
Trust® Daisy is contraindicated for use in the case of known or suspected pregnancy or if you are hypersensitive to levonorgestrel
Dosage and administration
Take one tablet only of Trust Daisy orally to prevent pregnancy as soon as possible, not later than 72 hours (3 days) after unprotected sex, rape, or suspected contraceptive failure. The earlier you take Trust Daisy the more effective it will be. If you vomit within two hours of taking the tablet, you should repeat the dose. It can be used at any time during your menstrual cycle
What happens if you have unprotected intercourse more than once in 72 hours?
Emergency contraceptives like Trust Daisy prevent pregnancy by delaying ovulation and are most effective within the first 24 hours (1 day) of unprotected sex. As a result, if you have taken Trust Daisy and have unprotected sex again after 24 hours, you may be at risk of pregnancy because active sperm could be waiting in the Fallopian tubes when the egg is eventually released, therefore another dose of Trust® Daisy can be taken to ensure prevention of pregnancy.
Please note that even if multiple acts of unprotected sex occur in a day, Trust Daisy should not be taken more than once in 24 hours. Subsequently, it is recommended you begin a regular short or long term method of contraception the day after taking Trust Daisy and you should consult a healthcare professional for advice on choosing a method.
