I took 10 Plan B I am so sad and scared. Please tell me what health damages i may have caused to my body? Haven't gotten my period for 2 months :(

If you are extremely anxious about getting pregnant, you need a more effective birth control method. If you have other anxieties, you may need to see a therapist. Talk with your doctor as soon as possible. ...Read more
