How It Works
Levonorgestrel, which is known as the “morning after pill” or Plan B, is the most common form of emergency birth control. 1
Morning After Pill
The Morning After Pill is sold as either Plan B One-Step® or Next Choice One Dose® 2. It is taken within 72 hours after having had sex without using any type of birth control or if the birth control method failed.
- If a woman is already pregnant, emergency contraception will not work
- Plan B and Next Choice are not the abortion pill
