    If Plan B stops ovulation, then doesn't that mean it won't work for a women who has just ovulated?  She would already be "just a little bit pregnant".  

    I thought Plan B interfered with the zygote's attachment to the uterus, so I'm glad for this information.  By the time plan B came out I didn't need it anymore, but I'll pass this on to my daughter.

    Thanks.

    •  Plan B has a relatively high failure rate. (0+ / 0-)

      That's one of the reasons it's Plan B, as opposed to Plan A.

      This was how I was finally able to convince one fundagelical student who tried to argue with me about this a few years ago-- I pointed out that if hormonal birth control could prevent implantation, it would have a lower failure rate. If it fails to prevent ovulation, it just fails.
