Had an oophorectomy last week and was raped last night. Is it OK to take plan b? What kind of side effects would be expected?
Police report. I am so sorry to hear this news. Please go to the police for a forensic exam. This will make sure you are ok and begin the legal process. They will also provide you with support groups and counseling. The doctor will offer Plan B and do STD testing. No one deserves this and help is available.
