Plan B One-Step® is a progestin-only emergency contraceptive. Each tablet contains levonorgestrel, a hormone that has been used in birth control pills for several decades, and works in a similar way to help prevent pregnancy.
Plan B One-Step® should be taken as soon as possible within 72 hours (3 days) after intercourse. The sooner it is taken, the better it works.
Plan B One-Step® will not work if a woman is already pregnant and will not affect an existing pregnancy.
It’s important to remind patients that Plan B One-Step® is a backup method of preventing pregnancy and should not be used as regular birth control, because it is not as effective.
54% of unintended pregnancies are due to unprotected sex, and 41% result from inconsistent or incorrect use of birth
