Emergency Contraception & Pregnancy Test Kit how it works

How it works

The active ingredient in Restart™ is the hormone levonorgestrel, which is commonly found in hormonal birth control. Restart™ works by delaying the release of an egg from your ovary (AKA ovulation) so that the egg can’t be fertilized by sperm. This hormone may also help prevent implantation, which is the attachment of a fertilized egg to the walls of your uterus. When you get pregnant, your body starts to produce a hormone called human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG). Stix pregnancy tests detect hCG in your urine, determining if you are pregnant or not pregnant. Two lines on the pregnancy test mean your urine tested positive for hCG and you are pregnant. Just one line means your urine tested negative for hCG and you are not pregnant.

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. Read What are the side effects of the morning-after pill? on our education hub, Real Talk to learn more. 

When does Restart™ expire?

Restart™ has a shelf life of 18-20 months, and will expire on June 30, 2024.

What if I’m already ovulating? Will Restart™ work?

Restart™, or any morning-after pill with the hormone levonorgestrel, will not prevent pregnancy if you’re already ovulating. Because Restart™ prevents pregnancy by delaying ovulation, this means that if you take it while you’re ovulating it may not work as intended. It’s important to note that most don’t know exactly when they ovulate, so it’s best to take the morning-after pill as soon as possible regardless of if you think you’re about to ovulate. 

How will I know that Restart™ worked?

You’ll know Restart has effectively prevented pregnancy when you get your next period, which should come at the normal time in your cycle or within a week. If your period is delayed beyond one week, it’s possible you may be pregnant. You should take a pregnancy test and follow up with your primary care provider for next steps. Read How do I know if the morning-after pill worked? on our education hub, Real Talk, to learn more.

Does Restart™ have any effect on my ability to get pregnant in the future?

Restart™ doesn’t impact an existing pregnancy nor does it negatively affect your ability to get pregnant in the future. Read more about this topic here on our education hub, Real Talk, for more info. 

Does Restart™ protect against sexually transmitted infections (STIs)?

Restart™ doesn’t protect against sexually transmitted infections (STIs). If you are sexually active, you should see a healthcare provider for routine checkups and regular testing. 

Is Restart™ the same as the abortion pill (medical abortion)?

No. Restart™ does not end a pregnancy. It’s an emergency contraceptive that helps to prevent fertilization by preventing or delaying the release of an egg from your ovary. If fertilization doesn’t happen, there’s no pregnancy. Medical abortion, in comparison, terminates an existing pregnancy up to 11 weeks by blocking the hormones necessary to maintain a pregnancy. For more info, check out our article The difference between the morning-after pill and the abortion pill on our education hub, Real Talk.

How do I use a Stix Pregnancy Test?

  1. Remove the pink cap from the test and pee on the absorbent strip of paper for 10 seconds.
  2. Put the pink cap back on the test.
  3. Lay the test on a flat, non-absorbent surface with the result window facing up.
  4. Wait for five minutes.
  5. Breathe, then read the results.
  6. One line means you are not pregnant, two lines means you are pregnant.
  7. Do not read the results after 10 minutes.

How accurate are Stix Pregnancy Tests?

Stix can detect hCG at 20mIU/hCG, or about 7 to 10 days after ovulation. For the best results though, we do recommend taking the test at least three days before your missed period or 19 days after you had sex.

Your levels of hCG increase every single day so the longer you wait to test, the stronger the results will be. If you were recently pregnant or are taking a drug that contains hCG (such as Pregnyl, Profasi, Pergonal, APL) you can get a false-positive result. Alcohol, birth control pills, antibiotics, and painkillers will not affect results.

In general, read the instructions of any drugs you are taking. Some medical conditions, like ovarian cysts, can cause false positives.

How early does Stix detect pregnancy?

Stix pregnancy tests are over 99% accurate and made with early detection technology, meaning they can detect pregnancy as early as three days before your missed period. However, for the most accurate results, take it on the first day of your missed period. If you have irregular periods or don't know when your period will be, test 19 days after sex or insemination for best results. Finally, we recommend testing first thing in the morning, before drinking any water, as that is when your urine is most concentrated.

We love you, too
