AAQ: Does Weight Have Anything To Do With The Effectiveness Of Morning-After Pills?

AAQ: Does weight have anything to do with the effectiveness of morning-after pills?

No.
There were rumors going around that the morning-after pills were less effective in women over 165 pounds and basically useless in women over 176 pounds. This was based on new labeling information on Norlevo, the European version of Plan B One-Step, which happened in late 2013. But in 2014, the European Medicines Agency conducted a review and determined that there wasn’t enough evidence to suggest that this was true, and Norlevo got rid of the extra warning label.
