Emergency contraceptive pills help prevent conception after an unprotected intercourse or after a contraceptive failure. Of all emergency pills available globally, there are two particular types (one containing progesterone only, and the other one is a combination of estrogen and progesterone) that are commonly recommended. These pills act by delaying ovulation temporarily or preventing the sperm to bind to the egg.

Hormonal pills, birth control injections, barrier techniques (like condoms), etc. are some effective methods of contraception in women with epilepsy. However, some hormonal pills interact with anti-epileptic drugs. In such cases, either an alternative method of contraceptive should be chosen, or interaction between the two therapies should be well understood to avoid drug interactions. Consult with your doctor to know the right contraceptive method if you are on anti-epileptic medications or suffering from epilepsy.
