WHAT IS PLAN B ONE-STEP?

Plan B One-Step emergency contraception is a backup plan that helps prevent pregnancy when taken as directed within 72 hours (3 days) after unprotected sex or birth control failure. The sooner it’s taken, the better it works.


Plan B One-Step is available for any woman who needs it—with no age restriction.

What Plan B One-Step is:

  • The # 1 OB/GYN recommended brand* of emergency contraception1
  • Easy to find in the family planning aisle of many retail stores—without a prescription or ID and with no age restriction
  • Chosen by millions of women2
  • Emergency contraception that contains the same hormone used in many birth control pills—just at a higher dose. It should not be used as regular birth control because it’s not as effective

What Plan B One-Step is NOT:

  • It is NOT an abortion pill
  • It won’t work if you are already pregnant
  • It won’t affect an existing pregnancy
  • It won’t protect you against HIV/AIDS or other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)
