I took Plan B about 10 hours after our mishap. I was very skeptical. But I hoped for the best. I didn't feel any side effects so I was really worried it didn't work.

Happy to report. No pregnan ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I took Plan B approximately 18 hours after suspecting a mishap and have yet to experience any negative side effects. Being now 6 hours in, I can report only minimal abdominal pain which is far from what I was expecting. I'm required to rate the effectiveness of the product, but it's clearly too early to tell. This is solely to reaffirm consumers that the drug effects everyone differentl ... Show Full Comment
