Morning friends, can anyone help me urgently, last night me and my Gf made love and we were shocked at the end that the CONDOM WE USED ACTUALLY BURST during the intercourse. The problem is that "Emergency pills are not available in Dubai)
Pls help me with any alternative that u might have to avoid this unwanted pregnancy.
I'm sorry the two of you are in such a stressful situation!
You can find a list of regular birth control pills that can be used as emergency contraception here: http://ec.princeton.edu/countryquery.asp Just pick UAE from the drop down menu. It gives you a list of a few pills that you can use as well as how many to take and when.
I'm not sure if this is available in the UAE (or if it's financially feasible for you), but your girlfriend could also get a Copper-T IUD inserted. They are very effective as emergency contraception, and then she can continue to use it as regular birth control.
Hi, thank u so much for your advice, I will walk straight to the pharmacy to get some. Anyway, do we need a doc prescription or these can be sold over the counter?

In terms of getting another brand of pills, I'm afraid I don't know how it works with that in Dubai, however, most likely your girlfriend will need to be the one to get them, and will probably need a prescription.
