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.

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.

I took Plan B within 12 hours of having unprotected sex. Initially I had no side effects. However, it has now been two weeks since I took it and I am very crampy, nauseous, have had a severe head ache for two days and am spotting quite heavily. I am still waiting to see if it worked since I have not yet had a full period. But after speaking with my pharmacist this morning I am pretty sure it has a ... Show Full Comment

I took this medication about 12 hours after unprotected sex and a few days later I had spotting and then a very heavy period started that I wasn't expecting. I felt very hormonal and my face broke out. I'm still waiting to see if it worked. I'm assuming given the bleeding it did. I hope!
