The Emergency Contraception Website - Your website for the "Morning After"

 

In the U.S., progestin-only EC is available on the shelf without age restrictions to women and men. Look for Plan B One-Step, Take Action, Next Choice One-Dose, My Way or other generics in the family planning aisle.

Next Choice

 

The Next Choice package instructions state that you should take 1 peach pill within 72 hours after unprotected sex and 1 more peach pill 12 hours later. Each dose contains 0.75 mg of levonorgestrel (the two pills are identical, so it does not matter which pill you take first). However, recent research indicates that both doses can be taken at the same time up to 120 hours after unprotected sex. The pills are more effective the sooner they are taken, so take 2 Next Choice pills at the same time as soon as possible after unprotected intercourse.

 

Next Choice

 

Next Choice is no longer being manufactured - although it still may be available in some pharmacies and clinics, it is being replaced by the one-pill product Next Choice One Dose.
