    Please review the clinical research literature exploring mechanism of action for levonorgestrel, which is the active ingredient in Plan B morning-after pills. It does not prevent implantation. If it prevented implantation, it would have a failure rate comparable to IUDs instead of a failure rate comparable to pulling out.

    I want to give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you've encountered this idea in a reputable source and haven't had the opportunity to read refutation of it yet. You've made this same comment a couple of times, though, so I get the impression you're kinda attached to the idea.

    You need to get un-attached to it, because it's false and it doesn't bear repeating on a reality-based forum.
