The Morning After Pill

What is the Morning After Pill?

The Morning After Pill, or “Plan B”, is a large dose of oral contraceptive.  The primary purpose of the pill is to act as an emergency contraceptive by preventing the ovulation, fertilization or the implantation of a fertilized egg.

How does the Morning After Pill work?

The morning after pill is NOT an abortion pill (The abortion pill is called RU486 and is a medical abortion). It won’t work if you are already pregnant. It is another form of birth control and prevents a pregnancy from occurring. Morning after pills work by temporarily stopping your ovary from releasing an egg, so that the sperm from intercourse cannot attach to the egg and cause a pregnancy. The morning after pill causes you not to ovulate if taken correctly.

Some Things to Consider:

  • The Morning After Pill is not effective if you know you are already pregnant.

  • Common side effects of taking the morning after pill include nausea, abdominal pain, fatigue, headache and menstrual changes.

  • Manufacturers recommend not using Plan B as routine use as a contraceptive.

  • Plan B does not protect against HIV infection (AIDS) and other sexually transmitted diseases.

Our clinics do not provide Plan B but can provide you with information about the emergency contraceptive and if it’s right for you. We will provide you with a free lab-certified pregnancy test. You will have results during your appointment.
