Order Morning After Pill From £13.49
Plan B One-Step is a type of emergency contraception, designed to prevent pregnancy after you’ve had unprotected sex. It’s sometimes called ‘the morning after pill’ which is a misleading name because you don’t have to wait until the morning after to take it. It’s more effective if you take it as soon as possible after unprotected sex. You take one pill which contains 1.5 milligrams of levonorgestrel, a synthetic hormone that’s used in some other types of contraceptive pill in a lower dose.

Plan B is an American brand. In the UK, the morning after pill which works in the same way is called Levonelle. The generic version of Levonelle is called levonorgestrel.
