How long does EC last? Does it last long enough so it would be worth it if I bought some just in case?

I'm going to assume you've got Plan B?

According to the manufacturer's website, it's good for 24 months after the date of manufacture.

LemonIceTea: If it helps to know, I always keep a pack of EC in my safer sex kit, just to be cautious. While you hope you never need it, it's better to have it and not have to scramble to find what pharmacies have it if you need it.
