Birth control no longer seems to be a taboo topic in today’s society; I’ve found myself in many discussions with women weighing the pros and cons of pills, IUD’s, and implants. But emergency contraception is something that isn’t discussed as often. Why is it that preemptive birth control can be discussed, but there is a stigma against retroactive contraception? I think it’s pretty damn silly! So today, I’ve partnered with Preventeza™ to spread awareness about emergency contraception. Needing emergency contraception when your birth control fails is nothing to be ashamed of, and it’s time for us women to feel comfortable talking about it! Prepared is Powerful.
What is Preventeza™?
Preventeza™ Emergency Contraceptive is a one tablet, one dose emergency contraceptive. It contains 1.5 mg of Levonorgestrel and works by stopping the release of the egg from the ovary. You can use it up to 72 hours after birth control failure or unprotected sex. If taken as directed,Preventeza™ will significantly decrease the chance that you will get pregnant. About 7 out of 8 woman who would have gotten pregnant will not become pregnant.
Is Preventeza™ an abortion pill?
No, it is not an abortion pill. Preventeza™ delivers a synthetic progestin, which is currently in many contraception methods. This actually prevents pregnancy BEFORE it starts, by delaying your ovulation. Sperm can live for up to several days in your vagina, so delaying ovulation is the best way to prevent pregnancy when you have unprotected sex. Preventeza™ does NOT work if you are pregnant, and will not affect an existing pregnancy.
Is Preventeza™ affordable?
One Preventeza™ tablet costs $46.99, which is comparable to other leading brand of emergency contraception. Preventeza™ is currently running a Buy One, Get One Free promotion that is applied at checkout, which lowers the cost even further. Preventeza™ is more expensive than condoms and birth control pills, but much less expensive than an unexpected pregnancy.
Are there side effects?
Some women may have changes in their period ,or experience nausea, stomach pain, tiredness, headache, dizziness, and breast tenderness. If you vomit within two hours of taking the medication or have severe abdominal pain, seek medical attention.
