Emergency Contraception

Many women use emergency contraception (EC) after unprotected sex or when birth control failed. It’s important to know that EC is intended to be used only as a backup to a failed method.

Before you take emergency contraception to prevent pregnancy, you should speak with a medical professional to learn how EC will affect your body.

Some side effects can include:

  • Dizziness
  • Headache
  • Heavier than normal or erratic menstrual bleeding
  • Menstrual pain or cramps
  • Nausea
  • Stomach pain
  • Tender breasts
  • Tiredness
  • Vomiting
