Up to 95%: If a woman takes the morning after pill within 24 hours of intercourse it is up to 95% effective. If she takes it within 72 hours of intercourse it is up to 89% effective. The sooner after intercourse the pill is taken the more effective it is, even during ovulation time. However being on bcp or Implanon or iud is even more effective, so it's helpful to consider a from of birth control.
Maybe: It is unclear from your question whether you are taking it before or after intercourse. It is not meant for routine contraceptive use which is why it is called emergency contraception. It is meant for use after an unexpected failure of contraception and is 95% effective if taken within 24 hr. After intercourse even at mid-cycle. This is less than the effectiveness of other contraceptives. Be safe!
Morning after pill: The morning after pill contains hormones, and in fact could change your cycle even if you haven't taken it before.
Not at all: You can take the morning after pill at any point in your cycle. The morning after pill helps to prevent ovulation. If you've already ovulated, the morning after pill won't really be able to help you. But women ovulate at all different times in their cycle, some as early as day #4, some as late day #16. Always use it if your condom breaks or you don't want to be pregnant after unprotected sex.See 1 more doctor answer
Why can the morning after pill make your next 2 cycles shorter, like 10-15 days (normally they 27)? Does it mean you didn't have ovulation?
Abnormal bleeding: Emergency contraception is used after unprotected intercourse to decrease the risk of pregnancy by about 70%. It is a high dose of birth control to disrupt the hormonal patterns to delay or prevent ovulation. Abnormal bleeding or an abnormal cycle after use is common. Check preg test in 10 days.
Yes: Plan B can work in one of three ways depending on where you are in your cycle. It can prevent or delay ovulation, can interfere with the fertilization of the egg or may prevent implantation by altering the lining of the uterus. If you take Plan B One-Step within 24 hours, it is about 95% effective.

Unlikely: Best results with the so called morning after pill require its use within 24 hours.
I took the morning after pill 36 hours after intercouse, and during my first day of ovulation. Could the pill have been taken too late?
I took the morning after pill 24hrs ago. Just wondering how long it will mess with my cycles for and how soon after taking it will I resume ovulation?
Difficult to say: It won't necessarily do anything to your cycle, but many women do find their next period to be a bit off after using Plan B. That can mean unusually light, perhaps a little early, perhaps a little late, maybe spotting for a day then it stops then comes back after a day. Everyone is different, but you should assume yourself to be as fertile as always going forward. Usually the 2nd period is normal
It depends!: The effectiveness of the morning after pill is related to a delay in ovulation produced by the burst of Progesterone that you get from this medication. I would say, in general, that I would not expect it to delay your cycle for more than 1-2 weeks. How long it delays ovulation is similar, but likely depends on whether you took it before, or after you ovulated. Remember to take a pregnancy test!
