Plan b: I'm not sure i can fully answer this question but i will do my best. If you aren't on any form on birth control and you have taken Plan B once then you are fine, it becomes a problem when you rely on Plan B and take it multiple times within a few months. At that point i would recommend talking to a doctor about birth control pills and other methods otherwise it is safe from the situation i listed.
