Who should not use emergency contraceptives?

ANSWER

Plan B One-Step will not affect an implanted pregnancy. Ella should not be used by women who are already pregnant or may be pregnant. The risk to a human fetus is unknown. Animal studies have demonstrated risk of fetal loss.

Also, women who have had clotting disorders or deep venous thrombosis (DVT) should not use Plan B One-Step.
