In brief: Yes; "Plan B" better
Plan b is better, but you can take 3-4 Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) now, and repeat in 12 hours.
Need to start within 72 hours of "the event..." if period over 10 days late, get preg test...

In brief: Yes with conditions
Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) should be taken two pills daily for 3 to 5 days within 24 hours of the unprotected intercourse event.
It doies not "guarantee" that implantation will be avoided in all cases.
