I took a Plan B one step about 4-5 weeks ago and after 3 weeks the only symptom I have is my stomach hurts when I eat. Do you think it worked?

Yes, but...: Plan B only contains the synthetic progestin hormone (levonorgestrel), so it doesn't tend to cause as many side effects as the older estrogen containing emergency contraception products. Plan B is highly effective provided you take it as directed, and you weigh less than 175lbs. Although Plan B can alter your next period, if you did not get your period yet, check a urine pregnancy test. ...Read more

I'm getting conflicting answers on here. My stomach/boobs still hurt (took Plan B mon.) if the side effects should b gone by now what is it?

I'm getting conflicting answers on here. My stomach/boobs still hurt (took Plan B mon.) if the side effects should b gone by now what is it?

I really do not: Know what answer you got or what your original question was. If you still have discomfort in your boobs and stomach. Do not take chance, have home pregnancy test. Remember any contraceptive method is not 100% particularly plan b. The other most important point is the time interval between unprotected sex and plan b. My point is check out if you are pregnant or not. Good luck. ...Read more

Took Plan B 3 days ago (Sunday) and the next day (Monday) had sharp stomach pain and vomited. Tuesday felt fine. Wed. Sick again + pain? What's wrong?

Hard to say: Answering this depends on when your last period was... It's important as well to know that you aren't already pregnant. Have you missed any periods? It's possible that you may have taken the plan B too late, and so you may have ovulated and that's explaining some of your pain. If you're pregnant or the pain keeps getting worse, see a doctor asap because you could have bleeding or ectopic pregnancy ...Read more
