The Morning-After-Pill

DES (diethylstilbestrol) is a high dose of oestrogen given over a period of about five days starting within 72 hours of intercourse. It has severe side effects such as nausea and vomiting and may cause cancer in 25% of female offspring if it does not prevent pregnancy. It should only be used for emergencies.
