PlanB

Were you looking for information about Plan B? PlanB is a common misspelling of Plan B.
Plan B (levonorgestrel) is a type of contraceptive that is used to prevent pregnancy after unprotected sex. This emergency contraceptive is ideal for use in the case of contraceptive failure (when another form of birth control, such as condoms, fails) or to prevent pregnancy after sexual assault. The drug comes in tablet form and is most effective when used as soon as possible within 72 hours of unprotected sex.
Most women tolerate the medication well; however side effects are possible. Some of the more common side effects seen with this drug include nausea, fatigue, and changes in menstrual bleeding.
