Comment:
I was taken advantage of while passed out at a party a week and a half into my cycle. I was on the pill but I was also taking antibiotics and I could feel myself ovulate the next day. 2 1/2 days after the incident I took plan B. It was very easy to take and I had minimal cramping. Friend who had taken this in the past said they'd started their period within 2 days but mine was on schedule 2 we ... Show Full Comment
