I used Oral Plan b after a condom break with my partner. The medication was easy to use and seemed to be very effective, since I did not become pregnant. Although I am very satisfied with it's effectiveness the side effects were a big problem for me. I experienced nausea, and headaches. The pills also changed my menstrual cycle and I spotted for several days after my cycle was done. I am also...

My ex-boyfriend came inside of me after i told him not to. He said not to worry about it that i could just take plan b. I was freaking out and took the medication not even 6 hours later. I ended up becoming pregnant. So just be very cautious and not use plan b as an excuse for unprotected sex. I heard that the effectiveness rate is only about 75%. Ladies please take care of yourselves, don't let a...

I needed to use this day after pill because I didn't use protection with my husband. I am still breastfeeding, with a 10 months old baby. I used less than 12 hours later. I got pregnant... So take care, girls if you don't want to get pregnant use a contraceptive or another method. Very disappointed. Expensive medication. Doesn't work...

So I had unprotected (on march14) sex 3 days after my period, and my bf said he didn’t finish inside me but I know he did. So maybe like 12 hours later that same day I took a plan b and I was ok... 5 days after that (March 19) I started spotting and it didn’t stop for like 4 days. I’ve had terrible cramps in my lower back as well as itchy/ swollen boobs. My period is also over 3 weeks late. Around week 2 of my period being late I took two pregnancy test which both came out negative, however I still have yet to get my period and April is almost over???????

I took the morning after pill on 11/18/20 and it was during my fertile window according to CLUE. I started to feel breast tenderness and cramps like never before. I knew for sure I was pregnant. On 11/25/20 I started spotting, which stopped after 2 day. At that point I knew I was probably pregnant. Then on 12/1/20 I started my period but this time itâ??s extremely painful cramps. I already have ruff periods due to endometriosis, but the pill made it worse. However, Iâ??ll this pain over pregnancy right now. So Iâ??m happy to report the pill worked for me.

*error in first review* Backstory: This was my second time taking Plan B. My first time was 5+ years ago and I did not have any side effects. This 2nd time it was my first day of my fertile window, November 3rd (according to the Clue app) and the condom broke. We instantly stopped and my boyfriend did NOT finish in me. The next day, I took Plan B to be safe. Also, my normal cycle is around 24-25 days... I know, sad. Side Effects: 4 days later I had mild cramping. 5 days later I started spotting, which 1 full day and instantly made me worry it was implantation bleeding. More cramping, bloating, constipation/or diarrhea, nausea, mood swings, tender + itchy breasts, itching down there, swelling down there, no sex drive, exhaustion, frequent urination, loss of appetite, sadness, confusion, and basically just complete agony followed for the next 12 days, which brought me to my expected PMS start date, November 13th and continued but lessened as the month went by. My period was supposed to start November 20th but I am currently on my 9th day of missed period, so I still haven't started. On my 8th day of missed period I actually took two negative pregnancy tests. Today, the 9th day, I discovered I had developed a yeast infection (probably caused from taking Plan B, as many others have also shared) and that is why I had so much swelling + itching + frequent urination.
