    How exactly does the Plan B birth control pill work? Does it some how prevent the sperm from joining the egg? Or does it actually kill the fertilized egg?

    What is plan b...never heard of it?
    If something kills the fertilised egg, it has to be inserted some way into the body, that causes an abortion..
    Surely you wouldnt use abortion as a plan b?
    There are many ways to have safe sex without having abortions, think of your own health befor you do anything...but safe sex is always best...befor, not after.

    Ahhhh, yes, its a medical early abortion..
    Thats been out for years..and do you know, it doesnt always work?
    The only reason its becoming more popular, is because there hasnt been anything else on the market for years..
    It works by detatching the newly fertilised egg from where ever it is...as once an egg detatches, it wont re attatch, dies.
    Not a great birth control means...

    Or it just prevents an egg (fertilized or not) from implanting at all. Totally different to an abortion.

    That's RU486.
    Sometimes Google is full of crap.


    MOD HAT ON:
    If this thread turns into yet another abortion thread, it will be closed.
    So, discuss the actual topic.

    Here is a Princeton web site about emergency contraception.
    Interestingly, it includes non hormonal IUDs inserted during a small window post coitus.
    Neat.

    Plan B has to be taken within 72 hours of unprotected sex. It's not the abortion pill, it just prevents implantation.

    We're all aware that safe sex is ideal, but life happens. You have to be 17 with an id to buy it at the pharmacy without a prescription.

    I'm under the impression that the new rule change removed age restrictions.
    Could just be the state, though.

    Serves me right for just using radio news. ;)

    It very well may have. I haven't been in retail pharmacy for about 5 years. :)
