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 One Dose


The Next Choice One Dose label says to take one peach pill within 72 hours after unprotected sex. This dose contains 1.5 mg of levonorgestrel. 


However, recent 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 Next Choice One Dose as soon as possible after unprotected intercourse. Next Choice One Dose may be found in the family planning aisle, and can be purchased by men and women of any age; you don't need to show ID.
