How Long Does Plan B Stay In Your System
I am breastfeeding. How long does plan B stay in your system? I am worried about taking plan be and what it will do to my 6 month old. I am exclusively breastfeeding but worried about getting pregnant because now is definitely not the time.
Not a concern: The progesterone hormone in Plan B is safe to take while breastfeeding and will not harm your child. Exclusive breastfeeding will provide you with some protection but you might want to discuss with your doctor about going on the "mini pill" for better reliability. This is a better option that episodically using Plan B. ...Read more

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).

How long will plan B be on my system? What effects long term does it have? What do I do now that I drank it?
Plan B elimination: The progesterone in Plan B is 99% gone within 7 days. It may take up to 2 months for your period cycles to get back to normal. This may include bleeding at the wrong time or skipped periods. You'll want to take a home urine pregnancy test using the first urine of the morning 14 days after you took the Plan B. If that test is negative, you're not pregnant. ...Read more

You should consider using condoms and spermicide in addition to your birth control pills. ...Read more
Hello I am very worried, I had 3 accidents this week and I took plan B 3 times this week, can it hurt my system and should I be worried?
Yes, be worried!: Don't be worried about danger of taking Plan B three times but you should be very worried about three "accidents" in one week. Three accidents is no accident but the result of very poor planning. You need to get a form of contraception that you can trust. For a teen who is fairly sexually active, an IUD or Nexplanon would be my advice. (Along with condoms for STD protection) ...Read more

Hello I took plan b one step yesterday and the next day, the comdom came off inside me. Is the medicine will in my system?
Maybe will work: First, one must stop having these little accidents. Secondly, there are no research studies that test this situation of putting sperm into a fertile woman one or two days after Plan B. Thirdly, life can be full of surprises... so always do a home urine pregnancy test 3 weeks after sex, because emergency contraception works most of the time, but not all of the time. ...Read more

I had sex day 1 (Friday) Took plan B (Sunday) before ovulation. Plan b stays in your system for 5 day? Can I get preg if I had sex following Friday?
Yes: Plan B decreases the risk of pregnancy by about 70% when used within 72 hours of unprotected intercourse. Pregnancy is still possible. If you had unprotected sex again then you need to use Plan B again. Please consider starting a more reliable form of long term birth control. IUDs and Nexplanon are the easiest, most effective option with the least side effects. ...Read more
I took plan b & a few hours later had unprotected sex with my bf. Could I get pregnant hours after taking the plan b or will it still be in my system?
Maybe: It takes time for the sperm to swim to the egg and fertilize the same. The Plan B may still be in your bloodstream but it tends to inhibit implantation not ovulation. Obtaining contraception with use with your boyfriend going forward if not pregnant, seems more mature to avoid pregnancy. ...Read more
If I took a Plan B at 12:00 pm and had unprotected sex at 2:00 am that night is it possible to still become pregnant? Will it still be in my system?
Possible, unlikely: It is always possible to become pregnant but unlikely in this scenario. The plan b causes an increase in hormones that prevents pregnancy. This increase stays in the body for longer than the 12 hours between the pill and sexual activity. If pregnancy is unwanted, protection may be a preferred and safer option. Good luck. ...Read more
Boyfriend came inside of me on my period and I took plan b the next day just in case. Is that bad? Will plan b mess up my system if I wasn't pregnant?
A little bit of bad: The little bit of bad is having to take Plan B because Plan A didn't happen. The question to ask oneself is, "What's my Plan A? " or "Why did I end up having to take Plan B? " Plan B can alter the menstrual bleeding for the cycle in which Plan B was taken, and sometimes the next cycle too. That's not harmful, though. One should be sure to check a home pregnancy test about 3 weeks after sex. ...Read more
