Contraplanll® is available for any woman who needs it. The sooner you take Contraplanll®, the better it works. You should use Contraplanll® within 120 hours (5 days) after you have had unprotected sex or experienced birth control failure.
Contraplanll® is a backup method of birth control you can use when:
- You didn’t use any birth control method before intercourse.
- Your regular birth control method failed (e.g., your partner’s condom broke or slipped)
- There was an issue with your regular method (e.g., you forgot to take your regular birth control pill)
Do not take Contraplanll® if:
- you’re already pregnant.
- If you’re allergic to or any of the ingredients in Contraplanll®
- In place of regular birth control, because it’s not as effective
