I was off the pill for a few days and we forgot to use back up contraception. I took Plan B 8 hours after sex. I was confused because the doctor said I'd get my period within a few days and that concurred with information I read online. After a week I still didn't get my period and I was a little nervous. But I got my period on schedule with my natural cycle, two weeks after I took Pla ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
Yes, broken condom exactly 14 days into my cycle. Took first dose less than 24 hours after, then second as prescribed. Felt kind of ill (flu-like symptoms) and stayed out of work the morning after taking the first dose. However, my period started 3 days early. A little bit heavier cramping and much heavier flow. However, I am not pregnant and the meds did the job.

Comment:
I have taken Plan B before and had no seroius side effects except being sleepy all day but the last time I took it it caused me to have severe headaches and dizziness and to top it off it has been causing my period to start every three weeks. I guess that's the trade off to not being pregnant.
