It worked, I didn't get pregnant but I think I would have rather gotten pregnant then gone through what I went through!! I should note that I don't normally take birth control so this may have messed with my hormones more than others! This was back in January. Most likely unrelated, but 3 days after the encounter I came down with the worst flu I had ever had. Had a quick flu test after 4 d ... Show Full Comment

I had unprotected sex on the day of ovulation. 32 Hrs after,took Plan B pill per instructional insert, well within the appropriate time limit. Minimal side effects- dizzy/diarrhea.

I took it about 18 hours after unprotected sex. No immediate side effects, but the next few days I had dramatic mood swings and anxiety. It was like I was a hormonal 13 year old again. Also experienced fatigue and dizziness. It worked; I did not get pregnant, so it was worth the $50 and side effects!

But then, I got my period exactly 2 weeks after and I was so relieved! So th ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
Initially, I experienced no side effects. Then, my period came 4-5 days early (no complaints there). HOWEVER, when my period did come, it was like I was being ripped apart. I mean serious, and I am the mother of a 2 year old so I remember pregnancy well. I took a hot bath and that helped, but the pain lasted the entire period (it did lessen). The blood was also bright red.
