Ask your Dr: Here's info on this medication - there are various names. You need to ask the Dr who prescribed it for your specific case. Don't use this instead of protection in the future but as a emergency pill it can be fine. Be w/ someone you trust to help if you feel bad. Just have a plan - it should go okay, but you'll feel safer. http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/druginfo/meds/a610021.html
