No danger: There is no danger in taking Plan B again. You need a better long term plan though. Plan b only decreases the risk of an unplanned pregnancy. If you do not want to be pregnant please see a doctor to discuss long term birth control options.

If I used a morning after pill twice in one month can something happen to my body and what are my chances of getting pregnant?

If I used a morning after pill twice in one month can something happen to my body and what are my chances of getting pregnant?

Body will recover: Plan B is called "B" because it is a back-up emergency plan. One does not use Plan B as her Plan A. Instead, one must stop having sex until a good Plan A is in place. Now is the time to get Plan A in place... with the goal of never needing Plan B again. Plan B is not to be one's method of birth control. Plan B is an emergency back-up plan when Plan A fails. Can do a preg. Test 3 weeks after sex.

Not harmful: It's not harmful to the uterus to take a morning after pill even if there was an abortion performed 6 weeks ago. But it does sound like you need a better form of contraception. If you don't want to be pregnant, you'll need to prevent the risk in the future.

I started my pill a day late I took 2 the following day and one the next the same time I had unprotected sex I took morning after pill am I protected?

I started my pill a day late I took 2 the following day and one the next the same time I had unprotected sex I took morning after pill am I protected?

Probably: You should be protected from the morning after pill if it was taken promptly. The worst pill to miss (and the most common pill to miss) is the first pill in a new pack, because you have already been off 7 days during the placebo week. Being off more than 7 days can trigger ovulation. If you are on the type of pill that has only 4 placebo pills then it is not worrisome to miss the first pill.

Need More Info: Sexually active in the middle of a regular cycle, you increase your chances of getting pregnant. Pre-ejaculate also contains sperm. The sooner you take morning after pill, the more effective it is. So, your chances of being pregnant are dependent on where in the cycle you were.
