how does plan b affect birth control?

Plan B =emergency BC: With no missed pills, "perfect use", the failure rate is 0.3%->99% effective.In typical use, because taking a pill every d without ever missing is hard, about 9/100 couples will get pregnant/year.But emergency birth control, plan b, reduces your risk of pregnancy by about 80-85%, and is not intended for regular use.Ask about other bc options that are easy to use and long lasting like iud or implant.
