THE DETAILS

Available without a prescription, Restart™ lowers your risk of pregnancy by nearly 90% when taken within 72 hours after unprotected sex.

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.

Restart™ is a safe and effective way to prevent pregnancy, all without a prescription or a trip to the drugstore. Anyone can buy Restart™ — no age limits or parental consent needed.

    • OGBYN approved
    • Easy-to-use with clear instructions
    • Does not impact your ability to get pregnant in the future
    • Does not terminate an existing pregnancy

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. Check out our article, Does the morning-after pill affect fertility?, on our education hub Real Talk for more info.

Is there a weight limit for Restart™?

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.

We believe everyone — at any weight — should be able to use the morning-after pill and trust that it will work effectively. 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.

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

No. Restart™ is an emergency contraceptive that helps to prevent fertilization by preventing or delaying the release of an egg from your ovary. If fertilization does not happen, there is 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.
