In brief: No

Plan B is an emergency contraceptive to be used AFTER an episode of failed birth control.
It doesn't keep working for the rest of the month. Plan B One-Step is up to 89 % effective when taken within 72 hours (3 days) after unprotected sex. It can reduce chance of pregnancy by up to 95% if used within 24 hours. It continues to reduce the risk of pregnancy up to 120 hours (5 days) after unprotected
