So people understand what Plan B actually does. First we call it Plan B in Canada.. not sure if that's a brand name or not. This is quoted directly from their website... "Plan B is simple to use



And remember the sooner you take it the more effective it is.



plan B is two pills which you take together. If taken within 72 hours, it prevents pregnancy by doing one of three things:



* Temporarily stops the release of an egg from the ovary

* Prevents fertilization

* Prevents a fertilized egg from attaching to the uterus



plan B is not an abortion pill—if you take plan B you will not be terminating a pregnancy.



If you are already pregnant and take plan B, there’s no evidence that plan B will harm you or the fetus."

I've taken it twice, and it worked as far as I know. But like the lady below said, its only for the next day or two after the intercourse. They're about 50 bucks at the pharmacy, you get two pills, one to take right away, and one to take a little later.

Sorry-- new to the format of Circle of Moms. I have to disagree with the comments on abortion. The pill does prevent implantation of a fertilized egg -- meaning that the baby already exists, it just can't implant in the uterus. Kind of like removing life support. So, the baby does die as a result of blocked implantation. Obviously, you will not know what happened in your own body -- you may have never know if the egg was fertilized or if fertilization was blocked or if you were ever at risk for pregnancy. Anyway, that is the issue that pro-lifers have with the morning-after pill -- that the egg could already be fertilized and, scientifically, human development would already have begun.

I took it when I was about 18.........under unfortunate circumstances. It worked, but it makes you extremely ill.

I did take it when I was 18, it worked but I was sick for 2 days, I guess it depends of your system.

from what I understand it would be the same as taking a month's supply of birth control pills all at the same time...so I guess it kinda makes sense that it has a similar effectiveness rate :)

I took the morning after pill to not get pregnant like about 4 times. I just got my period the next day a couple times and the other two times I didn't. It did work.

FYI - It needs to be taken within 72 hours and please know that it only prevents pregnancy. If the embryo has already been fertilized then the pill will not abort a fetus. Therefore, please know that it is not an abortion pill which is what a lot of opponents have labeled it. It is known to cause cramping and other side effects. More information can be found at Planned Parenthood or NOW (National Organization for Women). It only works if you take it early enough, but if it works you will never really know because you may not have been at risk for pregnancy anyway.

I have taken it before and I didn't get pregnant. It was shortly after I had my son and my husband and I didn't want to have another one right away. I had no problems or side effects from it.
