Product Description

Plan B is an emergency drug used after unprotected sexual intercourse. It might be as well called the morning after pill.

The active ingredient is Levonorgestrel.

Common use.

Levonorgestrel is contained in many birth control pills, however Plan B contains a higher dose for a better effect. It is recommended not to wait for the morning to take the pill. The ideal is to take it immediately after unprotected sex. If it is administered within 24 hours, the efficiency rises up to 95%. So, the sooner the better.

Administration and dosage.

One single pill should be taken, but only after you consult your doctor. The pill should be swallowed with a glass of water, the same way as for all the other medications.

Precautions and warnings.

This contraceptive method should be used only as an emergency one. It will not protect you from sexually transmitted diseases. Other birth control methods are recommended: condoms, spermicide.

Additionally, you should be aware that these pills are not effective in obese people. If your BMI (body mass index) is higher than 26, then Levonorgestrel will not help you. You could use a copper IDU.
