Next, you'll hear from the doctor

Once you’ve entered your symptoms, a doctor or nurse practitioner will review your case. If they’re able to help, your visit will start; if they can’t help, you’ll be notified before your consultation begins and you won’t be charged. You’re only charged if you speak with a Maple doctor.

Most often, you’ll speak to your doctor or nurse practitioner over text, though they may request audio or video chat if it’ll help with your diagnosis.

Get your medication

You'll get a prescription right on Maple, so you can send it to any pharmacy for pickup, or you can have it shipped with free delivery.

In some cases, a prescription won’t be recommended by the doctor. They will let you know if this is the case. Doctors may also not be able to prescribe some medications in certain provinces or regions.

Note: Maple is not a pharmaceutical manufacturer, nor are we an online pharmacy. This means you'll need to buy the medication from the pharmacy itself once you have your prescription.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is levonorgestrel (Plan B) and how does it work?

Levonorgestrel (Plan B) is a progestin hormone given to women as a form of emergency contraceptive.

A levonorgestrel prescription works by preventing ovulation – the release of an egg – during a woman’s menstrual cycle.

This medication also helps make vaginal fluid thicker to prevent sperm from reaching the egg to fertilize it. Moreover, it affects the lining of the uterus to prevent a fertilized egg from attaching itself.

What are the uses for levonorgestrel (Plan B)?

Typically, if you’ve spoken to a doctor on Maple, they may offer you an online levonorgestrel prescription if you’ve had unprotected sex within the previous 72 hours or if you’ve had another form of contraceptive failure, like a broken condom.

A Plan B prescription won’t stop an existing pregnancy and it won’t  prevent a partner with a sexually transmitted disease from transmitting it to you. It can be used anytime.

While this medication functions as an emergency contraceptive, it isn’t an appropriate long-term birth control method. Talk to a doctor on Maple to discuss other long-term contraceptive methods that may be right for you.

How do you use levonorgestrel (Plan B)?

After you’ve met with a doctor on Maple, they may decide to give you an online Plan B prescription.It will only be available as a tablet that needs to be taken orally.

This medication comes with a informational leaflet, which you should read before taking your first dose. Dosage and frequency of use will depend on directions from your doctor as well as safe consumption guidelines on the product packaging.

If you vomit suddenly within 2 hours of taking a Plan B prescription, contact your doctor immediately. They may modify your dosage or prescribe you a different medication.
