Does Plan B alwayas work?
Asked by Estrella Mcginness 2 months ago.
Plan B should be taken within 3 days (72 hours) of unprotected sex and can reduce the risk of pregnancy by up to 89%. But the sooner you take it the more effective it will be. Plan B is not RU-486 (the abortion pill); it will not work if you are already pregnant it contains the hormone levonorgestrel, the same ingredient found in many birth control pills. The difference is that Plan B contains a larger dose of levonorgestrel than the amount found in a single birth control pill. And, unlike many birth control pills, Plan B does not contain any estrogen Answered by Norma Rux 2 months ago.
Plan is a "morning after pill", taken after unprotected safe to help prevent pregnancy. LIke any other birth control pills or general medication, there is 100% guarantee. It is most effective when it is taken within 48 hours after having had sex. Answered by Berniece Josue 2 months ago.
Ru 486 is used to help to prevent implantation of a fertilized ova. That's why it's commonly called the morning after pill. It's about 89% percent effective. Used properly and consistendly, condoms are about 99% effective, and they protect against STI's. No other method of birth control does that. But getting back to effectiveness - there is no single or combined method of birth control that's 100% effective. So, in the future, use your head and cover his.

I'm not sure but if you have a local Planned ParentHood, or a Woman's Clinic, they can help you financially if you can't afford it. They give them for $25, but if you don't have the entire payment they'll take what you have and you pay them back slowly. No matter what your age or marital status, they'll help. Just don't take advantage of their great program. And get some birth control while you're there. Its cheap too. $15 a month!!! Answered by Mara Grahn 2 months ago.

Spotting after taking plan b?
i took plan b about an hour and a half ago and i checked the bathroom and i have light spotting. i dont know if this is from before or after i took the pill. what is this?
Asked by Elsie Zeman 2 months ago.
Firstly : Plan B does come with the possibility of screwing with your normal cycle. It stops the eggs from moving into the area where it can be fertilized by a sperm. While it is uncommon it can actually fully change your cycles in their entirity. Though, again, that is rare. Bleeding after taking the Plan B pill interrupts your cycle so, no, it is not uncommon to bleed after taking it at an odd time. If your cycles are erratic to begin with it could just be your normal period starting. Think of Plan B as an extremely high dose of the standard birth control pill. It's almost like taking the equivalent of an entire months worth of pills in one foul swoop. Now, don't take that to mean that you are in the clear to have unprodected sex for a whole month without becoming pregnant. It doesn't work that way. The reason you take the daily pills is because they flush out of your system when you don't take them ever day. Plan B, like standard birthcontrol pills, convinces your body that you are already pregnant, and unless you have a 2nd uterus in there (You don't, trust me) then the layer of your uterus has hardened preventing further implantation for a time. If it was your first time having intercourse then it could also have been your hymen stretching or tearing. If the bleeding continues past what a normal period of yours is like or if there is extreme pain involved then you need to see your doctor *very* soon as there are some rare but problematic side effects to the Plan B pill. In the future it is always safest to just be on birth control to begin with as well as wear condoms to double your protection as neither is 100% by itself, but together you can knock that 99% to 99.999999(etc)%. Better to play itself then taking a lot of medications that can seriously mess with your system at best and at worst possibly prevent you from being able to concieve in the future. The birth control pills are kept at low doses just enough to prevent pregnancy just for that reason. Yes, you can take Plan B several times in one month with probably no side effects, but high doses of what is, in essence, birth control, over extended periods of times at a constant rate does stand a very slim chance of shooting you off in to menopause. No fun all around. Answered by Thanh Merrill 2 months ago.
Is the plan b pill...?
is the plan b pill abortion?
Asked by Christin Fosselman 2 months ago.
It depends on who you ask. Because different people have different beliefs on when a fertilized egg is a baby and when it's not. The lawful definition of a fetus is when a fertilized egg implants into the lining of the uterus and fixes itself. But there is a period of time(48-72 hrs after sex) when an egg is fertilized but not attached to the uterus it's just kind of floating around in there, for lack of a better term. The Plan B pill causes the fertilized egg to not be able to implant into the wall of the uterus and it is simply flushed out along with the lining of blood and mucous and you have a period. Since the egg was never technically implanted and stuck to the wall of the uterus it's not considered a fetus yet. But some hard core right wing people will tell you that regardless of where the egg is in the womb, the minute the egg hits sperm and it fertilizes it's a baby. That topic is always under debate. EDIT: It is true that if a fertilized egg is already implanted in your uterus (when it's passed the 48-72 hr window) the plan B pill will have no effect. PS. Stop referring to it as the abortion pill, that's not what Plan B is. Answered by Diana Moralis 2 months ago.
Absolutly not!! its if you didnt use a condom or a condom broke. You take the pill to prevent a pregnancy. It cannot be an abortion because there is nothing existing except having the sperm not be able to reach the egg. It helps millions of woman that dont want to become pregnant. IT ONLY WORKS IF you TAKE THE PILL 72 HOURS AFTER YOU HAD SEX. its not an abortion pill.. its a morning after pill. Abortion means operation ending a pregnancy. Answered by Ken Dowson 2 months ago.

Top Plan B Side Effects - for the Professional Plan B 6.1 Clinical Trials Experience Because clinical trials are conducted under widely varying conditions, adverse reaction rates observed in the clinical trials of a drug cannot be directly compared to rates in the clinical trials of another drug and may not reflect the rates observed in clinical practice. Plan B One-Step was studied in a randomized, double-blinded multicenter clinical trial. In this study, all women who had received at least one dose of study medication were included in the safety analysis: 1,379 women in the Plan B One-Step group, and 1,377 women in the Plan B group (2 doses of 0.75 mg levonorgestrel taken 12 hours apart). The mean age of women given Plan B One-Step was 27 years. The racial demographic of those enrolled was 54% Chinese, 12% Other Asian or Black, and 34% were Caucasian in each treatment group. 1.6% of women in the Plan B One-Step group and 1.4% in Plan B group were lost to follow-up. The most common adverse events (>10%) in the clinical trial for women receiving Plan B One-Step included heavier menstrual bleeding (30.9%), nausea (13.7%), lower abdominal pain (13.3%), fatigue (13.3%), and headache (10.3%). Table 1 lists those adverse events that were reported in > 4% of Plan B One-Step users. Table 1. Adverse Events in > 4% of Women, by % Frequency Most Common Adverse Events (MedDRA) Plan B One-Step N = 1359 (%) Heavier menstrual bleeding 30.9 Nausea 13.7 Lower abdominal pain 13.3 Fatigue 13.3 Headache 10.3 Dizziness 9.6 Breast tenderness 8.2 Delay of menses (> 7 days) 4.5 6.2 Postmarketing Experience The following adverse reactions have been identified during post-approval use of Plan B (2 doses of 0.75 mg levonorgestrel taken 12 hours apart). Because these reactions are reported voluntarily from a population of uncertain size, it is not always possible to reliably estimate their frequency or establish a causal relationship to drug exposure.

if shes 3 weeks past due (after she already took plan b) then sure she might be pregnant, nonetheless it might of occurred earlier than hand. She demands to take experiment whilst her interval is past due now not earlier than her interval is due if she desires correct outcome. She will have to experiment now to get a correct effect! And if now not then She would possibly desire to peer her general practitioner to peer why she isnt getting her interval Answered by Catina Sergent 2 months ago.

How does plan b work?
I have pcos and my body ovulates really slow i was wondering does plan b have extra female ormoes to help my flow come down faster?
Asked by Nicola Kime 2 months ago.
The Plan B pill is intended for use as an emergency contraceptive. If a woman has unprotected sex, this pill can be taken up to 72 hours following sex, to help diminish the chance of pregnancy. The Plan B pill contains levonorgestrel, a progestin which is also found in many regular birth control pills. However, two pills are taken 12 hours apart, with the end result being a larger dosage. The more quickly you remember to take it following unprotected sex, the less chance you'll have of becoming pregnant. Unlike RU-486, the Plan B pill does not terminate pregnancies, but rather, prevents them from occurring. Progestin-based pills like Plan B work by disrupting a woman's normal hormone cycle. If taken prior to ovulation, it works by keeping the ovary from releasing an egg. The Plan B pill may also help prevent pregnancy by keeping the sperm from fertilizing the egg and preventing a fertilized egg from attaching to the wall of the uterus. If the fertilized egg is already attached, the Plan B pill will not harm it. Although not meant for regular use, the Plan B pill helps give women an option for those times when unprotected sex is an issue. It's also important to note that while the Plan B pill does prevent unwanted pregnancies, it does not protect against sexually transmitted diseases. hope this helps :) Answered by Ronald Gassman 2 months ago.
