Patient Counseling Guide

The following guide can help you talk to patients about Plan B One-Step®, the #1 OB/GYN recommended brand* of emergency contraception.1


Plan B One-Step® does not protect against HIV/AIDS or other STIs. After taking
Plan B One-Step®, some women may experience side effects that include changes in their period, nausea, lower stomach (abdominal) pain, tiredness, headache, dizziness, breast tenderness, and vomiting. Some women may have changes in their period such as a period that is heavier or lighter or a period that is early or late. If her period is more than a week late, she may be pregnant, and should contact her healthcare provider as soon as possible. If she has severe abdominal pain, she may have an ectopic pregnancy, and should get immediate medical attention. Learn more
