Took Plan B a month ago,taking my birth control pill,period came on time,  pain under right side of rib.vomiting,nausea. Could I be pregnant?

Probably not, but...: If worried, can test. A urine pregnancy test done correctly gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened). If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and therefore lead to a repeat test. If a woman has her normal regular period, then she is usually presumed not pregnant. ...Read more

If that is not the case will know that we have to look for a different cause. Keeping a log of your symptoms would help in this case. ...Read more

Is the sancuso transdermal patch for chemotherapy induced nausea and vomiting really any better than pill medications or is it about equal in effect?

Is the sancuso transdermal patch for chemotherapy induced nausea and vomiting really any better than pill medications or is it about equal in effect?

"non-inferior": Sancuso = granisetron in a transdermal patch. A study compared the granisetron patch with granisetron pills. Statistically speaking, there was "non-inferiority;" in other words, one was as effective as the other. The advantage is in the convenience of the patch compared with taking a pill several times a day. (study was by Boccia RV et al, published in Support Care Cancer. 2011;19(10):1609.) ...Read more
