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?

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
