Emergency contraception (EC) is usually an afterthought but at Pandia Health, we want you to treat EC like a fire extinguisher. You want it when your emergency happens, sitting in the corner of your house. You don’t want to have to run to the pharmacy, worry if they have EC in stock, if it’s covered by your insurance, about transportation, and whether the pharmacist will give it to you. Like birth control, many don’t realize there is more than 1 option for EC and it isn’t a one size fits all. In this post, we’re breaking down the wild world of EC in hopes that women will have more piece of mind in what can be a stressful situation.
