The term Morning after Pill is not the equivalent to the Abortion Pill, which is a medical procedure for abortion. It is important to know about the different kinds of morning after pills and how they work.

In Short- What Is It?

The morning after pill is an intense dose of oral contraceptive approved by the FDA. The product is commonly marketed under two names: Plan B One-Step® and ellaOne®. The normal dosage for Plan B One-Step® is one tablet taken up to 72 hours after unprotected sex. The normal dosage for ellaOne® is one tablet within 120 hours after unprotected sex. The morning after pill is chemically related but NOT the same as RU486 the abortion pill.

How Does It Work?

The morning after pill works as an emergency contraceptive, principally by possibly preventing ovulation and fertilization. Additionally, it may inhibit implantation.

Possible Side Effects

Side effects for these products may include:
• Headache
• Nausea & vomiting
