Need more info: Have you missed a period? If you miss your period by 4-5 days, do a home pregnancy test. If the result is negative repeat the test 4-5 days later unless you get a period by then. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully.
If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.

Depends-Vomiting?: If you only got sick in stomach and did not vomit then all is fine. But if you did vomit about 15 mins as you reported after you took the pill repeat the dose. Side effects include breast tenderness, nausea, spotting. Emergency birth control is not to be used routinely to prevent pregnancy please discuss birth control options with your doctor. Practice safe sex. Use condoms. Take care. Read more

When I lightly push on my stomach it makes gurgling noises. This is from all area of my stomach. What could cause this. Could it be Plan B side effects?

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 took the plan b about a month ago and just recently I've been having brown discharge. My stomach is bloated as well what does it mean?

Brown discharge: Brown discharge is usually a sign of old blood. The effects of Plan B resolve after only a few days. It is to likely that this is related since you took it a month ago. After taking Plan B it is always a good idea to take a pregnancy test and confirm that it worked. 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
