Plan B is an emergency contraceptive pill and effective when taken within 72 hours of intercourse. It reduces the chances of pregnancy upto 90% but not recommended for regular use. It does not affect the ability to conceive later.

Hi katherine,
Taking emergency contraceptive wont effect the conception in later life but the chances of failure of emergency contraceptive is very high.
Take care
