Plan B is safe and effective. Some women may experience side effects from taking Plan B; these side effects tend to be mild. Remember: Plan B doesn't stay in your body long term, and it contains levonorgestrel - the same ingredient found in many popular birth control pills.
Plan B, sometimes referred to as the “morning after pill,” is emergency contraception you take within 72 hours after unprotected sex. The sooner you take it, the better it works.
