The “morning after pill”, also known as Plan B®, is a large dose of oral contraceptive. It is actually 2 tablets, one taken within 72 hours of intercourse and the second 12 hours later. It is NOT the same as the “abortion pill”.
Plan B is meant to act as an emergency contraceptive principally by preventing ovulation or fertilization. In addition, it may inhibit implantation. It is not effective once the process of implantation has begun.
If you were pregnant prior to taking Plan B or you took it too late after intercourse, you may be pregnant. Real Options can provide a free pregnancy test and options counseling.
