Emergency contraceptives are used to help keep a woman from getting pregnant after she has had sex without using  contraception or if the method failed. You can use an emergency contraceptive if you did not plan on having sex and did not use contraception, you were forced to have sex or the condom broke or came off, among other reasons.
