No downside to EC: Emergency contraception, such as Plan B (aka morning after pill) is safe and 90% effective in preventing pregnancy. There are very few, if any, disadvantages other than it not being successful in preventing pregnancy.

Emergencies: The advantage of the morning after pill is that it can delay ovulation so you don't get pregnant if you had one episode of unprotected intercourse. Its disadvantage is that it only works once each month. If you are in a relationship having sex ever few days, it won't protect you. It isn't as effective as a standard birth-control pill and can have side-effects such as Nausea. Best wishes!
