Let's Talk Birth Control: Meet Preventeza™

Having children is one of those things that some of us choose to do, and others don’t. Both choices are perfectly okay and perfectly valid! As women, it’s important to know our options when it comes to birth control methods. Having access to emergency contraception after a birth control failure allows us to be prepared not panicked.

It’s smart not shameful to educate yourself on your options. The more you know, the more confident you can feel in the choices you make for yourself.

Today, we’re proud to partner with Vagisil® to share their new emergency contraceptive launch, Preventeza™.

For 40 years, Vagisil® has been dedicated to help women with their most intimate needs. By women, for women, they’ve developed trusted products covering issues like itch, odor, dryness, and sexual wellness.

They want women to never feel ashamed when it comes to their sexual health (and we do too!). You might be surprised to hear that one in two women may need emergency contraception during some point in her lifetime. One in two! It’s not something to be ashamed of, ever. These women are our friends, our sisters, our co-workers, and possibly even ourselves. When it comes to a woman’s body, it’s her body and her choice. It’s not up to anyone else. #WeAre1in2

Even if you use a regular form of birth control, things happen. And it’s okay to be prepared.

About Preventeza™

Emergency contraception works similarly to regular birth control. However, it’s not meant to be used as regular birth control. It uses levonorgestrel, a synthetic progestin that helps prevent pregnancy, in a high dose before it happens.

Preventeza™ is a one tablet, one dose emergency contraceptive. It should be taken within 3 days (72) hours of birth control failure. Emergency contraception primarily works by stopping the release of an egg from the ovary, but it may also work be preventing the fertilization of the egg or by preventing a fertilized egg from attaching to the uterine wall. Thus the sooner you take it after unprotected sex or birth control failure, the better.
