Plan B is a morning-after pill under the form of a single tablet that you can take to prevent pregnancy if you have had unprotected sex or suspect that your birth control failed. You can take Plan B if: your partner’s condom broke, you lost track of your “safe days”, your partner did not pull out in time, you missed one or more doses of your regular birth control, your diaphragm slipped out of place, you were forced to have sex. Plan B contains levonorgestrel, which is a synthetic (man-made) version of the natural hormone progesterone, which is produced by the ovaries. Similar to birth control pills containing levonorgestrel at a low dose, Plan B contains levonorgestrel at a higher dose (1.5mg), and works by delaying or stopping the release of an egg from the ovary. Plan B is meant as an emergency contraceptive only and therefore does not replace a regular birth control method. It is very important that you use regular birth control the next time you have sex. There are many different methods of birth control available, so talk to your physician about your options and find out which one is best for you. Plan B does not affect in any way your chances of getting pregnant in the future. However, please note that Plan B is not indicated for termination of an existing pregnancy (abortion) and does not protect you against sexually transmitted infections (STI) and HIV. Do not use Plan B if you know or think you are pregnant.
If you have had unprotected sex or suspect that your birth control failed, Plan B is a morning after pill that you can use within 3 days after unprotects sex to prevent pregnancy. Failed birth control can occur if your partner’s condom broke, you lost track of your “safe days”, your partner did not pull out in time, you missed one or more doses of your regular birth control, your diaphragm slipped out of place, you were forced to have sex. It is very important to use adequate birth control. Plan B is only to be used in case of an emergency, and not as a regular contraceptive method. Also, it is only indicated for the termination of an existing pregnancy (abortion), and does not protect you against sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and HIV.
Plan B contains levonorgestrel, a synthetic (man-made) version of the hormone progesterone, which is produced by the ovaries. Plan B contains a higher dose of levonorgestrel (1.5mg) than birth control pills, which also contain levonorgestrel at a low dose. Levonorgestrel works by delaying or stopping the release of an egg from the ovary.
Plan B contains the active ingredient levonorgestrel at a concentration of 1.5mg.
Plan B also contains the following inactive ingredients: colloidal silicon dioxide, corn starch, lactose monohydrate, magnesium stearate, potato starch, and talc.
Take Plan B One-Step 1.5mg tablet orally (by mouth) as soon as you can within 72 hours of unprotected sex or failed contraception. The sooner you take Plan B, the better it works. You can take Plan B during your menstrual cycle, day or night, with or without food. Do not take more than one dose of any kind of morning-after pill as it might make you feel nauseous and will not increase your protection against pregnancy anyway.
If for any reason you throw up within 2 hours of taking Plan B, contact your doctor or healthcare provider immediately to discuss whether to take another dose.
