How ContraplanII works

Contraplanll® works mainly by:

  • Stopping the release of an egg from the ovary

Contraplanll® may also work by:

  • Preventing fertilization of an egg (the uniting of sperm with the egg)
  • Preventing attachment (implantation) to the uterus

Contraplanll® is NOT:

An abortion pill. It will not work if you are already pregnant and will not harm an existing pregnancy. It is not intended for routine use because it is not as effective as regular birth control methods.
