Unprotected Sex? Now What?
Emergency contraception, often called the “morning-after pill,” is intended to prevent pregnancy after known or suspected contraceptive failure, unprotected sex, or forced sex. Emergency contraceptive may prevent the new life from implanting in the uterus, ending a very early pregnancy, rather than preventing pregnancy altogether.
Plan B One-Step™(Morning-After Pill)
Intended to prevent pregnancy after known or suspected contraceptive failure, unprotected intercourse or forced sex. It contains large amounts of levonorgestrel, a progestin hormone found in some birth control pills. It may work by preventing the egg and sperm from meeting by delaying ovulation; it won’t disrupt an implanted pregnancy, but may prevent a newly formed life from implanting in the uterus.
Plan B One-Step™ consists of one pill taken within 72 hours of sex.
What are the side effects?
Side effects may include changes in periods, nausea, lower abdominal pain, fatigue, headache and dizziness. If your period is more than a week late, you may be pregnant from a prior sexual encounter. Plan B One Step™ should not be taken during pregnancy nor used as a routine form of birth control.
There is evidence that Plan B One-Step ™ may increase the risk for ectopic (tubal) pregnancy, a potentially life-threatening condition. Women who have severe abdominal pain may have an ectopic (tubal) pregnancy, and should get immediate medical help.
