Reviews for EContra EZ

“So I promised myself I would come back and share my experience once this pill worked. To the person reading this right now, I was in your shoes just 2 days ago. Relax, what'll happen will happen, but also believe that this pill will work. So on the 19th of January, I had unprotected sex with my friend and he didn't pull out. I freaked, and ended up taking the pill 6 hours later. Then I wanted to see how efficient this pill was, and started to read reviews and freak myself out. DON'T DO THIS! All your doing is causing yourself un-needed stress! A week later, I started spotting/got my period? I wasn't sure what it was at the time. I did more research and thought it might be implantation, which it wasn't. It's crazy cause my body started to fall for it too. I started getting nauseas, and tired, and my period didn't come up until the day before yesterday. So basically, relax! You're going to be fine! Stop reading these insane reviews!”

“I had unprotected sex the day before I started ovulating, and took the morning after pill 7 hours after the sex. An hour after taking the pill I had cramps, bleeding, and felt really tired. The next week I had breast tenderness and sometimes what felt like cramps. My advice is to take it ASAP, to not panic and don't read plan b horror stories. Go into planned parenthood and talk to someone if you need a peace of mind or you can chat with someone online, I did and it helped me a lot. I got my period two days early and it was slightly heavier than normal. Try to relax and let the pill do what it does, and take it day by day. It's going to okay, whatever happens it's going to be okay.”

“I promised that I'd write a reviews if IT WORKED. At 1am I was reading results like this and freaked out, especially when I read less expensive brands didn't work as well. And, a lot of the reviews I read weren't that detailed. I am 19 and had sex on the November 19th (the 11 day of my cycle, day 15 being the day of my fertile window). The condom entirely broke and he came inside of me. I took the pill within 2 hours. But, it worked. However, I will say that I had terrible side effect symptoms. I was in the bathroom one whole night throwing up and was nauseous for 5 days straight. A lot of the symptoms seemed like pre-pregnant symptoms so I freaked out. It was a week early and I usually have regular schedules! There is so much stigma and everyone makes mistakes. I know the fear of pregnancy scares and so do the rest of these women posting. YOU ARE NOT ALONE. Best of luck and lots of love.”

“Took it after an accident and I was so worried it wouldn't work because I was potentially ovulating. My period came right on time with terrible cramps but it's better than dealing with a baby for 9 months.”

“I took this contraceptive last Tuesday (July 25th) and I got my period August 1(yesterday) I took it within the first 24 hours and am thanking my lucky stars I don't have a babe on the way. After reading review after review, I scared myself into thinking that generic Plan B is not as effective but that's simply not true (compare the ingredients, they're basically identical) Plus, Plan B has been around long enough that other companies are able to get the formula on how to make it. I would recommend this product and as always, remember the sooner you take it the more effective it will be. It also depends on where you're at in your cycle. Good luck to any ladies out there freaking out, losing z's!”

“I took econtra EZ last Friday night and its Thursday morning. I had just been off my period for 3 days that's when I took it. On Monday, everything seemed fine and I was in the mall pushing the stroller and I got a headrush feeling where your hearing goes out and you're about to faint...but it didn't make me super dizzy and the right side of my head went back to normal while the left stayed that way my ear was like numb and the side of my face for like 15 mins, I went to the ER they wanted to do a CT scan it was all ok. I started spotting Tuesday and now I'm bleeding like worse than my normal period . I don't even have a uterine lining to be shedding. Never again I'm very concerned. ”

“Took it 30 minutes after it happened and got my period 5 days later, a week before I was supposed to. Mild cramping and tenderness but I'd take it over being pregnant any day. God bless this medication.”

Frequently asked questions

Lauuurennnnn · May 15, 2017

“Can I give this medication something lower than a 1? I took it within a half out of intercourse and I still became pregnant from this encounter. Some changes need to be made or this pill SHOULD NOT be sold to women. Especially in COLLEGE health clinics! This pill is garbage.”

“Horrible side effects - increased depression and anxiety that lasted for weeks after I took the pill. I thought I understood the side effects before taking it, but that wasn't the case. My period was also nearly 3 months late, but the pill indeed worked when I took it in the time frame (I took it within 12 hours). Never again with this brand in my experience, but it does work.”

“Took this pill after unprotected sex on ovulation day, & here I am 4 weeks pregnant sitting in planned parenthood. I know plan B’s don’t work during ovulation, but do as you please with this information. Best out would probably be going to get an emergency contraceptive. Good luck.”

“Unprotected sex two days after my period ended, within 30 mins I took econtra ez. I am incredibly worried due to rumors that generic brands of plan b don't work. I don't know anyone who's ever taken this pill and I'm absolutely freaking out. Should I go buy regular plan b and take that to?”

“I had unprotected sex yesterday. Today I went to the clinic and got this econtra ez pill. I never took this one before, I usually get plan b one step. After I took the pill, I got dizzy and had a headache the whole day. I'm not sure if this pill is going to work. Can someone please tell me ? Should I take another emergency contraceptive pill ?”

“I have a regular cycle, every 28 days. I track using the Flo app which is usually accurate. I had unprotected sex the 8th, 9th, 11th, 12th and 13th, I know extremelyyyy risky. My app said that ovulation would occur on the 13th, I took the pill on the 13th. Two weeks later…. positive test.”

“Had unprotected sex two days after ovulation but still within my fertile window according to Flo. He didn’t fully ejaculate inside of me but he wasn’t 100% sure he pulled out on time. I took the pill less than 12 hours after, and immediately got really bad cramps and very nauseous. This was a similar experience to when I took plan B except it lasted longer (about 2–3 days). I also didn’t experience spotting like I did with Plan B which made me nervous causing me to get a pregnancy test. I took the pregnancy test and it was negative. Then literally a few hours later I got my period a day earlier than it was expected with excruciating cramps the first day, but then they went away. I personally would rather take plan b than this one, but I got this one for free from planned parenthood and it obviously worked.”

“I had unprotected sex 2 days prior to taking Econtra emergency contraceptive. Same day I took the econtra pill, I got my first Depo provera birth control injection. I was waiting for my period to come as I was told by the nurse that it may be delayed or come early. ONE MONTH AND 2 WEEKS LATER, I got my period. My advise is to let the pill do it’s magic and not to stress so much. It will come. Everyone’s body is different, just be patient and don’t use the internet as a reference about the pill.”

“Terrible I’ve been bleeding heavily for 9 days after taking it soaking thru super plus tampons I originally got this off of Amazon and now the product is taken down big red flag I don’t know what to do I guess . Spend the extra money on a Plan B or you’ll be spending much more at the doctors. This is never happened to me with Plan B”

“Took this pill two days ago, I have never been sick off a plan-B pill but this pill is a different story. Have a migraine, stomach problems and feel dizzy to where I almost pass out. If you have the money get a plan b this pill is awful. I have no idea if this pill is even effective.”

On my period no · Taken for less than 1 month · January 14, 2022

“(STORY)I had an accident the day of ( a few hours ) before ovulation. I get pain when I ovulate on the side it’s happening on every month . I had 2 pill boxes from my clinic so I took one about 45 min after it happened. I got online and read about it not working for women over 150/ or 170 lbs , So I went and took the other one I had . -I was also worried because back in 2013, I took a plan b AFTER OVULATION and became pregnant . Anyway … -Within the next week my discharge became thick and lotion like. There was A LOT if it . The estrogen causes this . -I got horrible PMS this month, my breast were sore, and I had light cramping . - I purchased 8 pregnancy test and tested damn near every day. -My cycle is very regular, it came 2 days before this month. But it’s here. Advice is : girls, always keep a box at home, just incase !! As these things happen”

“First time taking Econtra EZ my depression was at it’s worst. I couldn’t get out of bed, ended up having an ectopic pregnancy but I did take it the 2nd day. A year later, and I’m faced with the same brand from planned parenthood. I’m currently so depressed. I haven’t felt this way since the last time I took it.”

“I took Econtra EZ the next day after unprotected sex. Although, I was already ovulating and I am indeed 8 weeks pregnant. Remember emergency contraceptives do NOT work if you are ovulating.”
