You can buy levonorgestrel morning-after pills over the counter without a prescription in most drugstores, pharmacies, and superstores. These types of morning-after pills work best when you take them within 72 hours (3 days) after unprotected sex, but you can take them up to five days after.

How do I know if Plan B worked? You’ll know if your emergency contraception worked when you get your next period, which could come within a week of when you expect.
