Drug company warns morning-after pill does not work for women over 176 pounds - Salon.com
After 176lbs it doesn't work at all so if you are a heavier woman I wouldn't rely on this. I have to wonder how many unwanted pregnancies resulted from this pill failing. The average woman in the US, 20 years old and over, weights 166.2lbs.
