Can I take the day after pill today even though Im going to have an EPS-heart study done in 2 weeks?

That said, in patients with exceptionally high numbers of pvcs (more than 20, 000/day generally) there is a small chance (<= 7%) that heart dysfunction will develop over time. Low levels of pvcs do not appear to be harmful. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
