Access to emergency contraception for all

With reproductive rights stripped away, access to the morning-after pill is more important than ever. Everyone deserves to make confident decisions about their health, regardless of income or means to access.

Donate a Restart Morning-After Pill to someone who needs it

Since the fall of Roe v. Wade...

• 14 states have banned abortions completely, with very limited exceptions.
• 27 states have banned abortions at anywhere from 6-24 weeks and later.
• Near constant attacks on reproductive rights, such as abortion travel bans, debate over whether emergency abortions to stabilize the life of a patient are legal, and a Supreme Court case that could outlaw the abortion pill.

Here’s what you can do: 

Sign up to request a free dose of Restart™ if the cost is not in your budget.
Donate to the Restart™ Donation Bank to provide emergency contraception to someone in need.
Buy Restart™ for use now or to save for later. 

Our Impact


The total number of Restart™ donations is steadily growing and is not the maximum amount of donations received.

Our Donation Bank has helped provide 30,000+ free doses of our emergency contraceptive pill Restart™ to those in need. This progress bar above represents the number of doses requested versus total amount donated. As we receive more donations, we will be able to help expand access to essential emergency contraception across the U.S.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is Restart™?

    Restart™ is an emergency contraceptive pill (also known as the morning-after pill) that can reduce your chances of getting pregnant after unprotected sex. If taken within 72 hours, Restart™ can significantly reduce your risk of pregnancy. Restart™ is a safe and easy way to prevent pregnancy without a prescription or having to go to the drugstore. You can use Restart™ whenever you need it without impacting your ability to get pregnant in the future.

  • How do I sign up to get a free dose of Restart™?

    We believe that everyone should have access to reproductive care, no matter their financial circumstances. If access is compromised where you live or the retail cost of Restart™ is out of reach for you, you can join the waitlist to request a dose of Restart™ free of charge here. Made possible by the Restart™ Donation Bank, Stix has already provided over 8,000 free doses of our emergency contraception at no cost.

  • Is there a weight limit for Restart™?

    The TL;DR is that it’s inconclusive, but if you weigh over 165 lbs we recommend speaking with your primary care provider. Here’s what we know:

    The FDA states that there are no concerns that would prevent someone from using levonorgestrel emergency contraceptives safely — regardless of how much they weigh. When emergency contraception is taken within 72 hours (3 days) after unprotected sex or birth control failure, it can significantly decrease your chances of pregnancy by nearly 90%. However, there are some studies that suggest efficacy may decrease as body weight and BMI increase. If you weigh over 165 lbs or have a BMI over 25, the morning-after pill available without a prescription may not be as effective, and you may want to consider the prescription morning-after pill, ella®, or the copper IUD. If you have concerns about whether Restart™ is right for you, reach out to your primary care provider. While everyone — at any weight — should be able to use the morning-after pill and trust that it will work effectively, we know that this is not the reality. As a team, we’re committed to advocating for accessible emergency contraception for all and will work to offer better options to our customers as they become available. We urge the FDA to approve a higher dose of emergency contraception that is effective for all bodies, regardless of size.

  • Are there any side effects when taking Restart™?

    Side effects may include changes in your period flow (heavier or lighter bleeding) or timing (your next period may be early or late), nausea, lower stomach pain, tiredness, headache, dizziness, and breast tenderness.
