Next Choice One Dose™ can reduce your chance of pregnancy if it is taken within 72 hours (3 days) after unprotected sex (if your regular birth control was used incorrectly or fails, or if you have had sex without birth control).
Next Choice One Dose™ contains levonorgestrel and works the same as the Plan B One-Step® emergency contraceptive pill.
Next Choice One Dose™ is a generic medicine available without a prescription for women 17 years of age or older—you just need to show the pharmacist a valid government-issued ID proving your age. If you are younger than 17 years of age, a prescription is required.
Next Choice One Dose™ should not be used as regular birth control, if you are already pregnant, or if you are allergic to levonorgestrel or any of the ingredients in Next Choice One Dose™. Next Choice One Dose™ does not protect against the AIDS virus (HIV) or other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).
Next Choice One Dose™
- Is not an “abortion pill” (it is different than RU-486)
- Does not end a pregnancy that has already begun
- Does not protect you from HIV (the AIDS virus) or other sexually transmitted diseases
