Emergency pill does not act as an abortifacient as it doesn’t interfere with an existing pregnancy. Ezy Pill interferes with ovulation/fertilization/implantation depending on the phase of the menstrual cycle of the woman. However, once pregnancy has been established, it has no effect.
Emergency contraceptive pills are available over the counter and do not need a prescription of any kind.
Under the National Family Planning Program of the Government of India, one packet of Ezy Pill contains only one tablet of levonorgestrel, which should be taken within 72 hours of unprotected sex. After 72 hours the effectiveness of the pill decreases.
The potential health risks of an unplanned pregnancy are higher than any feared side effect from ECP. There is no evidence of ECPs leading to medical harm.
As the name suggests, emergency contraceptive pill should be taken only in case of an emergency (i.e. unprotected sexual intercourse) and should in no way be used as a regular contraceptive method.
