Yes: Plan B can work in one of three ways depending on where you are in your cycle. It can prevent or delay ovulation, can interfere with the fertilization of the egg or may prevent implantation by altering the lining of the uterus. If you take Plan B One-Step within 24 hours, it is about 95% effective.

Yes: Plan b will still work even if it is taken at the time of ovulation. Remember Plan B is most effective the sooner it is taken to the time of sex. Effectiveness goes down after 72 hours.
