Plan B is a safe, effective and affordable means of preventing pregnancy when you have unprotected sex or when your other birth control method fails. Plan B is a pill that you must take no later than five days after having unprotected sex. The sooner plan b is taken the more effective it is in preventing pregnancy. Ideally, plan b should be taken within 72 hours of unprotected sex and plan b is not akin to the abortion pill. Plan B cannot interrupt an established pregnancy, it works by preventing an egg from being released or by preventing it from being fertilized by sperm.
