Mechanism of action of PLAN B:
Levonorgestrel imparts its action by binding to the progesterone and estrogen receptors. Objective cells include a woman's reproductive tract, the mammary gland, the hypothalamus, and the pituitary. It will reduce the release of gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) from the hypothalamus and pre-ovulatory LH (luteinizing hormone) surge, as soon as it gets connected to the receptor Levonorgestrel.
In simple words, Plan B causes an alteration in your cervical mucus and uterine lining, making it difficult for sperm to reach the uterus and causes a hindrance for a fertilized egg to attach to the uterus. In this way, it serves as a birth control method.
