What You Need to Know

What is EContra® EZ?

EContra® EZ is emergency contraception that helps prevent pregnancy after birth control failure or unprotected sex. It is a backup method of preventing pregnancy and should not be used as regular birth control.

What EContra® EZ is not.

EContra® EZ will not work if you are already pregnant and will not affect an existing pregnancy. EContra® EZ will not protect you from HIV infection (the virus that causes AIDS) and other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).

When should I use EContra® EZ?

The sooner you take emergency contraception, the better it works. You should use EContra® EZ within 72 hours (3 days) after you have had unprotected sex.

EContra® EZ is a backup or emergency method of birth control you can use when:

  •   your regular birth control was used incorrectly or failed
  •   you did not use any birth control method

When not to use EContra® EZ.

EContra® EZ should not be used:

When should I talk to a doctor or pharmacist?

Ask a doctor or pharmacist before use if you are taking efavirenz (HIV medication) or rifampin (tuberculosis treatment) or medication for seizures (epilepsy). These medications may reduce the effectiveness of EContra® EZ and increase your chance of becoming pregnant. Your doctor may prescribe another form of emergency contraception that may not be affected by these medications.

How does EContra® EZ work?

EContra® EZ is one tablet with levonorgestrel, a hormone that has been used in many birth control pills for several decades. EContra® EZ contains a higher dose of levonorgestrel than birth control pills, but works in a similar way to prevent pregnancy. It works mainly by stopping the release of an egg from the ovary. It is possible that EContra® EZ may also work by preventing fertilization of an egg (the uniting of sperm with the egg) or by preventing attachment (implantation) to the uterus (womb).

How can I get the best results from EContra® EZ?

You have 72 hours (3 days) to try to prevent pregnancy after birth control failure or unprotected sex. The sooner you take EContra® EZ, the better it works.

How effective is EContra® EZ?

If EContra® EZ is taken as directed, it can significantly decrease the chance that you will get pregnant. About 7 out of every 8 women who would have gotten pregnant will not become pregnant.

How will I know EContra® EZ worked?

You will know EContra® EZ has been effective when you get your next period, which should come at the expected time, or within a week of the expected time. If your period is delayed beyond 1 week, it is possible you may be pregnant. You should get a pregnancy test and follow up with your healthcare professional.

Will I experience any side effects?
