Can I take the morning after pill while breastfeeding?

Can I take the morning after pill while breastfeeding?

Yes: Since mom's exposure to hormones in the morning-after-pill is of short duration, any hormones passed onto the baby via the breastmilk would also be of short duration. If desired, mom can pump and dump the breastmilk on the day (s) she takes the morning-after-pill. It is best if mom uses a reliable form of contraception, other than oral contraceptives, when breastfeeding a young baby.

Can I take the morning after pill when I'm taking day quil and night quil (cold pills)? Also does the pill have anything to do with virginity?

Can I take the morning after pill when I'm taking day quil and night quil (cold pills)? Also does the pill have anything to do with virginity?

Yes, and no: The 'morning-after pill' is safe ; effective to take while taking those cold medicine products. The pill doesn't have anything specifically to do with virginity. It is typically used for birth control only when patients are sexually active (so the user would not be a virgin), but birth control pills can be used to regulate periods or make them less painful, and heavy, so can be used in virgins.

Should I take the morning after pill if I had protected sex last night and the condom didn't slip or break? I'm just worried

Not necessary: It is not going to harm anything but it would not likely help either. You should not need the additional protection if you were using the condom properly..

Should I take the morning after pill if I'm already on birth control?

Should I take the morning after pill if I'm already on birth control?

No: If you are using birth control already the "morning after pill" should not be needed. If you have not been using your birth control method properly, then the "morning after pill" may still be a good idea.

Am I suppose to get my period twice in 1 month if I take the morning after pill?

Am I suppose to get my period twice in 1 month if I take the morning after pill?

Periods with Plan B: Periods can get very off schedule with the use of Plan B. If it is time for her period, you can certainly do a pregnancy test, and if negative, repeat in 3-4 days. Don't be too concerned though, about the lack of period or too many if pregnancy tests are negative after use of PlanB. Periods can be off for months, both coming too soon or not at all, after use of emergency contraception.

To cover myself, should I take the morning after pill? I'm on birth control and just took morning after pill 3 weeks ago?

To cover myself, should I take the morning after pill? I'm on birth control and just took morning after pill 3 weeks ago?

To cover yourself?: If you're not taking your birth control pill consistently, you would not be protected from pregnancy. In that case you might need plan b. Taking your oral contraceptive pills as prescribed will cover you sufficiently, if you're willing to do that.

Hi I had unprotected sex on monday while I was ovulating if I take the morning after pill (i pill) four days after will it still work?

Hi I had unprotected sex on monday while I was ovulating if I take the morning after pill (i pill) four days after will it still work?

Maybe not, but...: But, what does it mean if an i-Pill doesn't work? If it means a woman would have the same chance of pregnancy as if she did not take an i-Pill, her chances of pregnancy would average 20-25%. That means without an i-Pill, she might not get pregnant... or she might and then, of course, have a baby to keep her company. Consider asking the doctor for Ella (ulipristal acetate) or an IUD, which may work even 5 days out.

Could I start taking aviane the day after I take the morning after pill?

Could I start taking aviane the day after I take the morning after pill?

Yes: Yes, of course birth control does have a specific starting date, but if that date is the day after the morning after pill then. You can start it. Also the morning after pill has levonorgestrol, the same drug in the morning after pill. Birth control also works as the morning after pill in certain circumstances.

If I take the morning after pill on the night before ovulation will it work.

Maybe: It is unclear from your question whether you are taking it before or after intercourse. It is not meant for routine contraceptive use which is why it is called emergency contraception. It is meant for use after an unexpected failure of contraception and is 95% effective if taken within 24 hr. After intercourse even at mid-cycle. This is less than the effectiveness of other contraceptives. Be safe!

Can I take the morning after pill twice in one month? What will be the side-effects if I use it 2.5 weeks later again?

Can I take the morning after pill twice in one month? What will be the side-effects if I use it 2.5 weeks later again?

No danger: There is no danger in taking Plan B again. You need a better long term plan though. Plan b only decreases the risk of an unplanned pregnancy. If you do not want to be pregnant please see a doctor to discuss long term birth control options.

I had none surgical abortion and had sex within the ten days without any protection can I take the morning after pill?

I had none surgical abortion and had sex within the ten days without any protection can I take the morning after pill?

Yes. ..: You can take the morning after pill up to 2 days after unprotected intercourse. Since you just had an abortion, I would suggest that the idea of unprotected intercourse is not a wise one. See a health care provider soon to start preventative birth control.
