Comical Information on EC

The link I am adding below is a comic about EC or Emergency Contraception. I like the comic as a whole; it is a good way to learn the basics of EC. It explains the difference between EC and the abortion pill and some of the side affects.

The part I disagree with is the way it shows the side effects of EC as being very terrible, when the side effects are actually rare. Many women do not have any side effects at all after taking EC and others have mild side effects. The most common side effects are shown in the comic: nausea and cramping. Different women have different experiences some feel nothing while others are sick for a long time. It is important to be prepared for the worst but chances are if you take EC you will not be in pain or have any side effects for very long. Although the side effects may not be as common as shown it is still not something that should be used as a form of regular birth control- note the same has “emergency” in it for a reason.

I feel overall it is a good comic. I wish it had some information on how to get EC but it is a good way to get people talking about EC.
