When I took the one-dose pill, I had just finished my period a week before. I experienced fatigue and mood swings, then started my period a couple days after taking it, but it was light. I thought my "second period" was ending, then began cramping again and experiencing breast tenderness and am having a very heavy period. It's a listed side effect, but I'm still feeling a litt ...

I figured I'd share my experience for those who may find themselves in a similar situation and need answers. I had unprotected sex in the middle of ovulation which I was sure would result in pregnancy. I took the Next Choice One Dose about 8 hours later and felt a bit sleepy after.

I took Plan B once, it was effective & I had no side effects. I took Next Choice this time the morning after because Plan B was not available. I am now pregnant. Do NOT substitute this for Plan B brand.

I had to wait it out. Not I ... Show Full Comment

Along with crazy cramps, that night I was also feeling emotionally exhausted, crying a lot, which I did not expect. Today, my period has begun, only two days after I expected it to arrive. This medicine works and is easy to expect; the only reason I g ... Show Full Comment
