How often can I take plan b? I already took two pills about a week in between each. Had an accident today (a week after) should I take another plan b?

Here's the real deal: I don't believe that taking another Plan B is likely to harm you (but you never say never in medicine). The real issue is that you need to get on some birth control that you trust. This worry isn't good for anybody. Make an appt with your doctor or with your local planned parenthood and explore your options for a birth control method you can trust. Btw, keep using condoms for infection protection. ...Read more

Can I take plan b two days in a row or will that be an overdose?

No: Plan B should not be taken 2 days in a row. That will not increase its effectiveness but will increase the side effects. If you had unprotected intercourse a second time, you do increase the risk of failure however. Now is the time to look into starting a more reliable method of contraception so you don't have this worry and remember to use condoms to decrease the risk of STDs. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Can I take plan B twice in a week? I took in Monday but my back up method failed again last night

Not recommended.: Plan b twice in one week can really mess up your cycle and it may take some time before you regulate it again. If you are going to be sexually active, Plan b is not the right product for you. You need reliable birth control. ...Read more

Hi, I recently had protected sex, but it was my first time and I didn't know the guy very well, should i take plan B just incase?

Maybe not: If you are certain that with the "protected" part everything was fine, the plan B will only mess with your cycle. If you know when you are supposed to come on your period, count 14 days back - that is when you would have ovulated. If you did ovulate around the encounter you are referring to, then take plan B. ...Read more
