    I am writing a review because I had a late period and was so stressed I was pregnant -- wanted to bring some comfort to someone who might have had the same experience. Had unprotected sex on 5/10 took Plan B the next morning about 12 hours afterwards. I am not going to lie I have had sore breasts pretty much the whole 2-3 weeks since I took the pill and I had spotting on 5/21

Of course, he came just outside my entrance and I'm like dude, that drips down you know??? And like pre-cum and things like that. So not even an hour later I take the pill. I am 18 years old, and I'm here to let ALL OF TH ... Show Full Comment

    I took plan b after I had unprotected sex. Literally an hour later. The thing is: it was when I was ovulating or had just ovulated... Somewhere around that time. I was so scared for a good two weeks until the day my period was supposed to come on. I drank a lot of green tea and took Black Cohosh to jumpstart my period ( please read about these before even considering taking them to induce a period ... Show Full Comment
