How safe is Plan B One-Step?

ANSWER

Many women have taken emergency contraception without serious complications, but it's a good idea to ask your doctor about possible interactions with other medications.

Plan B One-Step is considered safe for most women. You should not take it if you are pregnant because it will not end the pregnancy.
