  • Take EC pills as soon as possible after having sex.
  • EC pills will help keep you from getting pregnant.
  • Take them within 3-5 days after sex.
  • Note: EC pills cannot end a pregnancy if it has already started. It is not the abortion pill.

How to take EC pills:

You can take EC pills in two ways:

  1. Pills Packaged for EC:

    • Examples: Preven® or Plan B.
    • Ella from HRA Pharma reduces the chance of pregnancy up to five days after sex.
    • Plan B, widely used, begins losing effectiveness within three days of sex.
  2. Pills from a Birth Control Pack in Special Doses:

    • EC pills work best the sooner you take them.
    • Take the first dose right away, preferably within 12 hours after sex.
    • Take the second dose 12 hours after the first dose.

EC pills are safe to use. Some women may feel sick or tired for a few days.

How do EC pills work?

EC pills work in different ways. They may:

  • Keep the egg from leaving the ovary.
  • Prevent the sperm from meeting the egg.
  • Stop the egg from attaching to the uterus.

How well do EC pills work?

EC pills lower the chances of getting pregnant after sex. You must take them no later than 3 to 5 days after sex. They are for emergencies only and don’t provide ongoing protection. Consult a healthcare provider about starting or maintaining a regular birth control method.

Take care of yourself. Get a regular birth control method. Choose one that works for you. Use condoms every time you have sex to protect against diseases. Ask for EC pills to keep on hand, so you’re ready in case you need them in an emergency.

The most common side effects with the drug include headache, nausea, and abdominal pain.
