Sometimes, I think the conversation around emergency contraception focuses too much on the
“emergency” aspect. The narrative around needing or taking EC seems to always be about purchasing or picking it up as an afterthought, literally we have referred to it as the “morning-
after pill” pretty much since its inception. With thinking about preparedness, especially in relation to women’s health and reproductive choices, I feel that an emergency contraceptive like Preventeza™ should be thought about in a more proactive sense. Though it should never be used as a regular birth control method, it is something that should be kept on hand if you or you and you partner have decided that starting a family is not where you’re at right now. I have heard so many stories from young women, and I also have them myself, about having to get up the next day and seek out an emergency contraception product be it from a pharmacy or clinic. I finally had a revelation - why not just keep one or two boxes of Preventeza™ on hand? I’ve always been proactive about having
access to condoms so that not using one is never an option, so why would it be any different to
also keep an emergency contraceptive for if/when said emergency situation occurs? Especially
when it can be conveniently purchased online! The best way to survive an emergency is to be
prepared and the best way to be prepared is to think ahead.
