Never say never. No one plans on having unprotected sex, but it happens to the best of us. When did you have sex without a contraceptive or have a contraceptive accident?

How the day after pill Plan B Works

Plan B is a form of Emergency Contraception

Plan B is simple to use

And remember the sooner you take it the more effective it is.

How does plan B work? plan B is two pills which you take together. If taken within 72 hours, it prevents pregnancy by doing one of three things:

  • Temporarily stops the release of an egg from the ovary
  • Prevents fertilization
  • Prevents a fertilized egg from attaching to the uterus

plan B is a day after pill, not an abortion pill—if you take plan B you will not be terminating a pregnancy.

If you are already pregnant and take plan B, there’s no evidence that plan B will harm you or the fetus.
