The morning after pill (sometimes referred to as “Plan B” or “Emergency Contraception“) is intended to be taken within 72 hours of unprotected sex to prevent implantation of a possible fertilized egg. It will not be effective if you are already pregnant.
Before taking, there are many factors to consider:
-Does it work?
-What are the risks?
-How will it affect me?
-What if I am already pregnant?
-Am I at risk for sexually transmitted diseases (STD)?
-What if I have taken it before or need it again?
