Dr. Clarene Cress
Specializes in Pediatrics
Unpredictable: The main side effect of repeated doses of Plan B or levonorgestrel are irregular periods, especially heavier than normal or irregular bleeding or a skipped period which makes it confusing with early pregnancy. It does not prevent infection and is not as effective as being on regular birth control. It is contraindicated in pregnancy, so I recommend taking a PT.
