    I promised myself if this worked for me that I would leave an honest and transparent review. I had unprotected sex on August 3rd, which was during my "fertile window." (btw I never tracked my ovulation because I take BC pills. I didn't know about a fertile window or day of ovulation until i researched it AFTER I thought I could be pregnant). I was worried because I had missed my two ... Show Full Comment

    So far, I've had to use Plan B twice. The first time, the condom broke and went unnoticed until after the fact. I took Plan B immediately after and got my period on time. The second time, I took Plan B the morning after unprotected sex and freaked out the next 12 days. It happened right on the exact day I was supposed to ovulate and I know Plan B won't work if you've already ovulated. ... Show Full Comment

    I had to take Plan B because the condom broke. We didn’t realize until the next morning, and I immediately took it when my boyfriend realized and told me. I was terrified because I was ovulating, and also because I had read all of the bad reviews. Ladies, don’t freak out too much! It doesn’t help anything at all. I took a pregnancy test two weeks after taking the Plan B, and it came out negative. ... Show Full Comment

    I hope this review would help those that are worrying right now. My boyfriend and I had unprotected sex and we werenâ??t sure if my boyfriend pulled out in time. So to be safe, I bought plan b and ate it. My period was delayed (by about a week or two?), breasts were sore, and even had spotting. I was super anxious and stressed out which I think made the period delay even more. This made us e ... Show Full Comment

    I'm 19 and I had sex for the first time about 12 hrs after I ovulated. We used a condom but after we finished we realized the condom broke and everything ended up inside me. I freaked out and got Plan B, took it an hour and a half after the incident. I was really discouraged because online there were articles saying Plan B apparently does nothing for you if you ovulated already and does nothin ... Show Full Comment
