Is it bad to take Plan B twice? I had unprotected sex 2 weeks ago and took Plan B within 72 hours after. I got my period normally after. I had unprotected sex again and took Plan B a couple of hours later.

In brief: Taking

Taking Plan B twice is allowable.
Nothing bad will happen to you from taking it twice. There are many birth control options now, including oral tablets as you know and also the Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud that can protect against pregnancy, but only a condom will prevent infections, so please be cautious.
