Emergency Contraception Myths: Busted
There’s no doubt that Emergency Contraception is a safe and effective way to prevent pregnancy after engaging in unprotected sex. Unfortunately, there are a lot of myths associated with ECP’s (emergency contraception pills) that cause confusion for women who may be in need of a quick solution. Here are our Emergency Contraception myths, busted:
ECP’s cause abortion. False. According to the World Health Organization, ECP’s do not impact an already established pregnancy, but rather prevent a pregnancy from ever implanting in the uterus. This is why taking your pill as soon as possible after having unprotected sex is your best bet (within 5 days).
The more you take an ECP, the less effective it will be. False. According to Insider, if you follow the instructions, your ECP will be just as effective the first time as it will be the tenth or twentieth time. However, they are more effective the sooner you take it after unprotected sex, so keep that in mind when delaying your purchase.
An emergency contraceptive will make you very sick. Well, it depends. Common side effects include nausea, headache, dizziness, and vomiting, but every woman and body is different.
Taking an ECP will make it harder to get pregnant in the future. False. No studies have shown that an emergency contraceptive will harm fertility or lessen chances of getting pregnant in the future, so you’re in the clear.
Emergency contraception is hard to get. False. There are dozens of generic ECP’s on the market available at pharmacies or local clinics. We offer Ella, a newer pill that requires a prescription which can be issued online through KwikMed.
