Plan B Overview

Levonorgestrel is a hormonal medication which is used in a number of birth control methods.[1] In pill form, sold under the brand name Plan B among others, it is useful within 120 hours as emergency birth control.[1] It becomes less effective the longer after sex and only works before pregnancy has occurred.[1] It is also combined with an estrogen to make combined oral birth control pills.[2] Within an intrauterine device (IUD), sold as Mirena among others, it is effective for long-term preve...

Plan B taken ovulation/semen through clothes
1 Reply RSS Share
So long story short, me and my girlfriend got frisky and I came on her vag but she was wearing 2 layers of clothes (leggings and underwear) but it appears to have seeped through and she complained to me about a strange feeling all night and in the next morning. She was ovulating at the time when I came on her and what came out of her was thick and white I said it could be vaginal discharge as it was the logical thing to say but it can also be semen if any got in her. and she also panicked thinking it was semen. Around 18 hours after I came on her I got her plan B to just make sure she doesn’t get pregnant l. She started feeling pregnancy symptoms/the side effects of plan B (Nausea and headaches, etc). Her concern is that the pill won’t work even though it has such a high per...

Took plan b, missed my period.
3 Replies RSS Share
I had recently taken plan b, I took it within 16hrs. My period was supposed to come roughly two weeks after I had taken it. All that had happened though was a little light brown discharge. It has now been two weeks since my missed period. I have taken 4 tests, 2 showed negative and the other two were unclear. Since the day I missed my period my stress levels have been sky high, seeing IM assuming I'm pregnant. This is also the third time in 6 months I have taken plan b. I am wondering if a combination of stress and over use of plan b could cause this. Is it possible that the light. brown discharge was my actual period? Thank you in advance ## Plan B is a hormonal tablet that is used to help prevent a possibly fertilized egg from implanting, thus, spotting, headache, dizziness and PM...

Plan B..bleeding..pregnant possibility
2 Replies RSS Share
I took the plan b pill earlier this month.. under horrible circumstances. I bled the next day for about 5 days. My period wasnt for another 2.5 weeks. Am I suppose to have my regular period? I had unprotected intercourse with my guy a week later. Its the end of the month, no period. I've been nauseous and have little tings in my breast. I feel like I have little cramps but not cramps in my lower abs. It's been a little over a week and a half since I slept with him. Is it possible that I could be pregnant? Or this is just normal. I don't want to jump to conclusions. I don't want to say nothing to him bc he would be so excited and I don't want to give his hopes up. Thanks for the help you guys. I tried to call the doc office and ask the possibilities but they wanted al...

Is althea pills safe?
2 Replies RSS Share
Hi i started taking the althea pill lastnight, but i had intercourse on the same night and by the next day without using any contraceptives like withdrawal or condoms, but it still within the 7 days period after my menstruation. Am i still safe for unwanted pregnancy? ## If you started taking them on the first or second day of your period, then you are protected against pregnancy, however, if you started it on any day later than that, there may be a chance that you are pregnant and you should have yourself check for it, according to NIH reports. Its typical side effects are listed as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, and PMS-like symptoms. When did you start taking it? ## I had my period aug 21 and started with althea aug first 7days of taking the pil...

Heavy bleeding after plan b
1 Reply RSS Share
Took plan b twice about 2 months ago.. I got my period a month after for about a week then after 2 weeks I got heavy bleeding. I've been researching about it and I've seen that it's possibly not my period. It's hormonal bleeding ? Anyways, I went to to see a doctor 2 weeks later because I was still bleeding heavily. He prescribed birth control pills to get everything back on track. I am now on my 2nd week of taking the pills, however I'm still bleeding. Although not heavily, I'm still so worried. And the bc pills have affected my body so much; headaches and I get tired very easily. I also have hyperthyroidism, not sure if that affects anything ? And is still on medication. Please help me. Thank you in advance ## Everything you've described can be normal side ...

Plan b and low WBC count
1 Reply RSS Share
A friend of mine took the plan b pill and has not had her period in 2 months. She has had headaches, been vomiting and feeling very hyped up and sensitive. She keeps saying she needs to have her period to release all this tension. She has been very stressed out over it. She had blood work done and it showed a low white blood cell count. Can the plan b pill and the side affects cause her to have a low white blood cell count? ## No, that is not a normal side effect. The FDA lists its typical ones as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and irregular bleeding. Whether or not she gets her period, it will most likely not change these issues. Given the symptoms, it sounds more like she is pregnant, or dealing with some type of hormonal issue. Is she on any other medications? Has th...

Plan n normal or?
8 Replies RSS Share
I'm curious. I had read that plan n will cause a bleed (withdrawal) 5- 7 days after taking it. Is this always true? I'm an early ovulate, usually cd10 to cd12 out of a 23/24 day cycle. I confirm ovulation by taking my bbt. However, this month I took a break from doing so as I was experiencing more stress than usual after a job promotion. I had unprotected intercourse on cd8 into the early morning of cd9. Because I wasn't tracking this cycle i completely forgot where i was until i looked back at my tracking app. It was pull out method but we all know how reliable THAT is. I took the plan b pill around 3pm the following day. Today makes exactly 7 days since and I've not had any symptoms at all except for being tired (as of yesterday) & my breasts are extremely tender e...

Can Ampicilina Mexapin interfere with PlanB One Step
2 Replies RSS Share
I took a planB onestep pill on Monday the 4th and on Wednesday the 6th I started to take Ampicilina Mexapin for a really bad sore throat. I wasn't on any medication when i took the Plan B Pill it was until 2 days after that i took this Antibiotic. I was just wondering if this Antibiotic could decrease the effectiveness of the PlanB Pill? ## Hello, Andrea! How are you? Sorry about the sore throat. There shouldn't be a problem, especially since you didn't take them together on the same day. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this antibiotic as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. The side effects for Plan B may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache and spotting. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I was on an...
