10% vs 2%: Check out http://www.Drugs.Com/pro/plan-b.Html: 2% of all pregnancies are ectopic. In those using progestin only contraception (such as plan b), up to 10% of pregnancies are ectopic but remember, chances of getting pregnant on any contraception are much less than if not taking birth control. However, fda doesn't feel emergency contraception increases risk: http://goo.Gl/l9gn9n.
