I know emergency contraception, particularly progestin-only (Plan B), delays ovulation, but does anyone know for how long? Does it cause a person to ovulate a few days later in her cycle, or does it prevent ovulation all together until the next cycle? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/huh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":confused:">

Try reading this and see if it answers your question. It is a little technical and I'm not sure it answers your specific question.<br><br><br><br><a href="http://thewelltimedperiod.blogspot.com/2005/10/how-does-emergency-contraception-work.html" target="_blank">http://thewelltimedperiod.blogspot.c...tion-work.html</a>

the main purpose is to prevent ovulation altogether.<br><br><br><br>
barring that to prevent fertilization of the egg.<br><br><br><br>
barring that to make an inhospitable uterine environment for implantation.
