FAQ's you might have regarding this; *take from http://www.plannedparenthood.org/ ;

How Does the Morning-After Pill Work?

Pregnancy doesn't happen right after sex. That's why it's possible to prevent pregnancy even after the fact. It can take up to six days for the sperm and egg to meet after having sex. Emergency contraception pills work by keeping a woman's ovary from releasing an egg for longer than usual. Pregnancy cannot happen if there is no egg to join with sperm.


You might have also heard that the morning-after pill causes an abortion. But that's not true. The morning-after pill is not the abortion pill. Emergency contraception is birth control.
How Safe Is It?

Emergency contraception is safe, and millions of women have used it. Various forms of emergency contraception have been used for more than 30 years. There have been no reports of serious complications.



How Do I Use the Morning-After Pill?



Take the morning-after pill as soon as possible after unprotected intercourse. It will reduce your risk of pregnancy if you start it up to 120 hours (five days) after unprotected intercourse.
Some brands have one pill, and some have two. The instructions on brands with two pills may say to take the pills 12 hours apart. But research shows it is just as effective and safe to take both pills at the same time.
After you take emergency contraception, it's normal for your next period to be different from usual.
  • It may be earlier or later than usual.
  • It may be heavier, lighter, more spotty, or the same as usual.
Be sure to tell any health care provider that you may see before your next period that you have taken the morning-after pill. If you do not have your period within three weeks after taking emergency contraception, or if you have any symptoms of pregnancy, take a pregnancy test or schedule an appointment with your health care provider.


What Are the Disadvantages of the Morning-After Pill?

There have been no reports of serious complications among the millions of women who have used the morning-after pill. Side effects are uncommon, and usually stop within a day or two. Possible side effects include
  • an earlier or later, heavier or lighter period than usual
  • breast tenderness, dizziness, or headaches, and 
  • nausea or vomiting. If you vomit within two hours of taking the pill(s), it won't be effective and you need to take it again.
Frequent use may cause periods to become irregular and unpredictable. Emergency contraception should not be used as a form of ongoing birth control because there are other forms of birth control that are a lot more effective and less expensive.
Emergencies happen. It's good to know your options.
