EContra® EZ is an over-the-counter emergency contraceptive. This one dose medication is a progestin-only tablet intended for use after unprotected sex or the failure of a contraceptive. While it is not intended to be used as a routine form of birth control, EContra® EZ can be used as a backup method of preventing pregnancy.

How EContra® EZ Tablets Should be Taken

For best results, EContra® EZ should be taken as soon as possible after unprotected sex. It is effective for 72 hours (3 days) after intercourse, however, the sooner it is taken, the better it works.

How EContra® EZ works

EContra® EZ contains a higher level of levonorgestrel than birth control pills. This high level dose of hormone mainly works by stopping the release of an egg from the ovary. It may also work by preventing fertilization or also by preventing attachment of an egg to the uterine wall. If you are already pregnant, EContra® EZ will not work.

Side Effects

Some women report changes in their period (may be late, early, heavier or lighter than normal). If your period is more than a week late, take a pregnancy test to be sure that you are not pregnant. The most common side effects include changes in your period, nausea, lower stomach (abdominal pain), tiredness, headache, dizziness and breast tenderness.
