How do I time taking emergency contraception pills?
updated about 4 years ago

Plan B One-Step, Next Choice One Dose, My Way, and ella consist of just one pill that’s to be taken as soon as possible after unprotected sex. If you’re taking a generic with two pills, research shows you can take both pills at the same time—you don’t have to wait 12 hours after taking the first to take the second.
