A 22-year-old female asked:

It should work, but: Plan B, Postinor 2, and other brands of emergency contraceptive pills can alter the menstrual cycle for the cycle in which Plan B or Postinor 2 was taken, and sometimes the next month's cycle too. One should be sure to check a home pregnancy test about 3 weeks after sex, because emergency contraceptive pills work most of the time, but not all the time.

28 pill pack: In a birth control pill pack that contains 28 pills the last seven pills are only there to help the woman remember, when to start the new pack. These pills do not contain active ingredients and are all of the same color.
