How does Plan B affect the ovulation if used before? Does it stop it altogether or delay? And if delay by how long?

Typical with Plan B: Plan b essentially disrupts the normal menstrual cycle by blocking or delaying ovulation. That it is how it works and why it is so different than a medical abortion. Irregular bleeding after taking Plan B is not rare. Always check a pregnancy test after using Plan B and see a doctor to start a better form of birth control. ...Read more

How long would levonelle (the morning after pill) delay ovulation?

How long would levonelle (the morning after pill) delay ovulation?

It depends!: The effectiveness of the morning after pill is related to a delay in ovulation produced by the burst of Progesterone that you get from this medication. I would say, in general, that i would not expect it to delay your cycle for more than 1-2 weeks. How long it delays ovulation is similar, but likely depends on whether you took it before, or after you ovulated. Remember to take a pregnancy test! ...Read more

If i took a plan b pill before would that have delayed my ovulation date? If so by how long? i took it fertile days leading up too ovulation

If  i took a plan b pill before would that have delayed my ovulation date? If so by how long? i took it fertile days leading up too ovulation

Wouldn't delay ovul: Plan B will not delay your ovulation. Plan B functions by preventing fertilization by altering tubal transport of sperm or egg. It may alter the endometrium (lining of the uterus) to prevent implantation which is needed for cell growth. Ovulation is the release of your eggs from the ovaries and Plan B does nothing here. So it would not delay your ovulation. ...Read more

Is there a safe way to delay ovulation in a normal cyle by just a few days?

Is there a safe way to delay ovulation in a normal cyle by just a few days?

Possibly: By taking Clomid (clomiphene) starting on day 5 you can sometimes push the day of ovulation a couple of days later. This is not foolproof. It is more likely to work if you have a very short cycle and ovulate early and are trying to ovulate closer to day 14. There is a 5-10% risk of multiple birth (mostly twins) so it is not without risk. ...Read more

The follicle will likely degrade without the signal to release the egg. The EC would sustain the lining of the uterus and once that is cleared, you'll have a period. ...Read more
