Can you tell me about Plan B (levonorgestrel 1.5), the pill didn't work and could I get pregnant?

Plan B: Plan B is used for unprotected sex with contraceptive failure. It works using female hormones. Plan B can prevent the ovary from releasing an egg, thickens cervical mucus which makes it harder for the sperm to reach the egg and thins the lining of the uterus to prevent implantation. Even use of Plan B within 72 hours is not a guarantee that pregnancy won't occur. ...Read more

I had medical abortion 12 days ago, is it safe for my body to take Plan B (levonorgestrel 1.5 mg) with respect to future fertility ? Thank you!

Yes, if f/u exam ok: If your doctor has cleared you that the abortion was complete, then Plan B as well as other birth control products can be used in the future without compromising your fertility. I strongly urge that you use some other birth control method and protected sex instead of Plan B for pregnancy prevention until you are ready to have a baby. ...Read more

I had unprotected sex while ovulating, I took Plan B about 30 hours later. I also had the mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD inserted 2 days later. Should I be worried?

Unlikely Pregnant: Plan B can work in one of three ways depending on where you are in your cycle. It can prevent or delay ovulation, can interfere with the fertilization of the egg or may prevent implantation by altering the lining of the uterus. If you take Plan B One-Step within 24 hours, it is about 95% effective. The mirena (levonorgestrel) really won't have an effect on this unprotected encounter. ...Read more
