After Plan B How Long I Need To Wait To Work Out
No restrictions: There are no activity restrictions after taking the plan B pill. However, you should resume your normal method of birth control immediately. Your period should come at the normal time or up to one week later. If it is late, you should take a pregnancy test and talk with a healthcare provider. Good luck.
Had sex yesterday, took plan b. Boyfriend came inside me today. Do I have to take another plan b? How long will it work? Thank you
Take another: The first Plan B will probably cover you but it doesn't hurt to take another. And please, get on a good continuous birth control method. You have many options. Your doctor or planned parenthood can help you with this. Getting pregnant when you don't want to has very serious consequences.
Don't wait: Plan B One-Step is up to 89 % effective when taken within 72 hours (3 days) after unprotected sex. It can reduce chance of pregnancy by up to 95% if used within 24 hours. It continues to reduce the risk of pregnancy up to 120 hours (5 days) after unprotected sex, but is less effective as time passes.See 1 more doctor answer
Wait for what?: You can have sex (protected). If you haven't had your period within a week after anticipated then notify your physician.
Not needed: There is no need to stop exercising when taking Plan B.
Preventing ovulation: The medication works by inhibitting ovulation. Thus, no egg, no pregnancy! the half-life of the medication varies greatly ranging from 11 to 45 hours and so it is difficult to say for sure. Based on this, it stays in the body for about 2.5 days to just over 1 wk. If you still have question, post it here or consult your doc. Good luck.
Depends on ur weight: Plan B is usually effective up to 5 days after unprotected sex, but most effective within first 72hrs (~88% reduction in unintended pregnancy). However recent studies found that Plan B is less effective in women weighing >165lbs, and ineffective if >175lbs. It does not stay in system more than a few days.
Till you get a per: Iod in case you are pg and it didn't work and you plan to keep the pregnancy.
Next cycle: You should be able to get pregnant the next time you ovulate.See 1 more doctor answer
1 day: No waiting period is necessary if you took pan b correctly and at the right time.
If you miss a period: If you are 4-5 days past the expected day of your period do home test using first morning urine.
Plan B: If your period is late (especially if 7 or more days late). Potential side effects with emergency contraception can include: tender breasts; changes in menstrual flow (spotting, bleeding, early or late period); loose stools; dizziness; headache; nausea/ vomiting; abdominal discomfort or feeling tired. If you develop chest tightness, difficulty breathing, swelling of lips, mouth, throat – call 911.
