Blood clotting: If it were a birth control pill with norethisterone or levonorgestrel in it, I would agree that that pill could be used as an emergency contraceptive.

Hi. I am on gianvi (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) and i wasn't very great about taking them on time this month. Can i take a dosage of it as ec?

You may want to think about using a different form of pregnancy prevention that requires less effort to remember it each day. The iuds or Nexplanon may be better choices. ...Read more
