Suggest side effects of Loestrin 24 Fe pills

Can Loestrin 24 Fe be used as an emergency contraceptive? How does it compare to the Plan B pill? Are there any bad side affects? If you are already pregnant, will it hurt the potential baby? How should you take it when used as an emergency contraceptive?
