In brief: Many advantages

Emergency contraception is a highly effective method to prevent unintended pregnancies.
It can be used up to 5 days after an episode of unprotected intercourse i.e., contraceptive failure, sexual assault, exposure to a drug that can cause birth defects. Planb is acessible over-the-counter for women age 18 and older.
