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.

 

Take Action

 

Take Action is a generic form of Plan B One-Step. The label says to take one white pill within 72 hours after unprotected sex. This dose contains 1.5 mg of levonorgestrel. Take Action is available for sale on stores shelves without restrictions to women and men of any age. It usually costs $35-$45.

 

However, research indicates that it can be taken up to 120 hours after unprotected sex. The pill is more effective the sooner it is taken, so take Take Action as soon as possible after unprotected intercourse.
