Reviews for Plan B to treat Emergency Contraception

"Same as most of you, I spent 99.9% of my time freaking out. The condom broke and he finished on a day that my period planner told me I was fertile. I took plan b 45 minutes after the incident. I spent 2 weeks freaking out and stressing. I got my period a day earlier with really bad cramps. It worked, not complaining! Just thought this post might ease someone's mind!"

"I had protected sex and he pulled out with the condom on. Paranoid, I took Plan B (within the 24 time range) anyway because my period tracker app told me I ovulated the next day. I was stressing majorly. The side effects I had included: extreme mood swings, little cramping, and fatigue. My period came one day late and everything is fine. I don't think I needed this, but my advice would be to use a condom every time and also try to go on sometime of birth control. You can get this at any pharmacy for around $50. I suggest keeping at least one of these stocked in your shelve at home if any stores are closed and you have a BC mishap or unprotected sex. Best of luck!"

"I decided to write this because these reviews helped me to stop worrying. I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend on Saturday January 30th. (A week ago today) He didn't ejaculate inside me but I realized how risky what we had done was, so the day after, approximately 25 hours after the sex, I bought a generic form of plan B. I experienced very mild cramping, like almost none at all, plenty of discharge, nausea, and bloating. Today I got my period. I have never been so excited to see blood. So I'm just here to say that plan b works. I know this is easier said than done, but don't stress. It will work. symptoms sucked but worth it. Hope I could ease your mind"

"'I had sex on 1/16 the condom slipped off and we didnt notice till we where done. According to my period tracker I was fertile the day I had sex my ovulation day was the 20. I was totally freaking out. The next day I went to buy Plan B($54) I took the pill at 5:40pm 18 hours after the accident. The next week I had swollen breast, cramps and I was eating a lot I was scared that I might be pregnant. I took a pregnancy test and it show negative. . I was stressing out for two weeks. Till finally Feb 1 I got my period right on time. I have never been so happy to get my period. Plan B worked for me. I Hope It works for you too. Good Luck"

"Hey ladies!! Just like you I was reading these freakin out so I'm here to share my experience! My boyfriend and I were having sex, the condom broke and we didn't know. He always pulls out but does as he's cumming. I took the pill 11 hours after our mishap. Did some research and I was ovulating the day it happened of course I freaked out! Stomach cramps, headaches, back pain, vaginal discharge, and fatigue were all of the side affects I had from the pill. But I started my period almost a week early! I also took a pregnancy test 2 weeks after the mishap and it came back negative. I'm not gonna tell you to not stress because I know I did."

"I'm gonna share my full story to try to bring relief to anyone freaking out. I am 18 and my boyfriend is 19. We're clearly not in a place to be parents at all. We had sex with a condom a week ago and as he was pulling out it slipped off spilling who knows how much in me. I immediately took plan b. I got my period a week later and two weeks earlier than it should've been. But my period was weird, it started off brown (which it normally is at the end not beginning) and it was very light, me freaking out took to the Internet. I was very nervous that this could be implantation bleeding instead of my period because it met the qualifications of implantation rather than a period. I waited it out and now my period is regular. Hope it helps."

"I was in the middle of having sex with my boyfriend when there was little lubrication and I felt pain so I made him stop then when he took off the condom it was broken and he actually ejaculated inside of me! This happened at around 11:00pm and of course all the pharmacies were closed so the next day as soon as most pharmacies opened(9:00) I got the plan b pill. My period was supposed to come yesterday and I just got it today so I made this review!! Plan B works! I was so scared but really, don't be. As long as you take it within 24 hours you'll be fine"

"My boyfriend and I had unprotected sex about 2 weeks ago and bought Plan B the day after having sex. So that night he wore a condom but the condom slipped off and he came inside of me just a little bit. Just to make sure it wasn't a possibility of me being pregnant right now he bought Plan B. I was really skeptical on if it'll work at first but I read all these good reviews and it kind of made me not stress over me possibly being pregnant to much. Today I got my period and it was the biggest relief ever. So don't stress out Plan B really works."

"I am a 18 yo female and had protected sex with my boyfriend. The condom broke (we didn't notice until it was too late) and I was not on birth control, so I bought the pill and took it less than an hour later. I felt very sick and crampy the next day, so I figured that meant that the pill was doing its job. However- I was wrong. I ended up pregnant but had a miscarriage. I do not recommend this pill and it definitely should not be relied on. It may work for some, but for others the consequences will be all too real."

"Hey, you. Girl reading plan b reviews for the past hour. I was just like you. I read these reviews about 15 times each and started googling about every possible question on how effective the morning after pill was. Me and my boyfriend were having sex and the condom ripped. I freaked out because he had came inside me. I started shaking and telling him off because he didn't pull out when he felt the condom rip. He said he didn't feel it, but I didn't believe him. We rushed to the pharmacy about 30 minutes after we had unprotected sex and I took the pill. I was freaking out! Thinking about how I was gonna raise a kid. BUT I got my period one week early!:) believe me, It works!!!"

"Wow ladies!!!! All I have to say is "wow". This stuff seriously works. I'm 18 years old and I had sex with my boyfriend on the 22nd of January, and while he was pulling out, the condom stayed inside of me. We were worried about any leakage so I decided to take plan b about 18 hours later. according to my period tracker it said that I was supposed to ovulate on the 21st so I started to freak out thinking I could've been ovulating while I took plan b. My side effects were very little but it did make more anxious about my period starting and a little bit more irritable than I usually am the week before my period. I was only a day late for my period and I could not be happier. This medicine is a lifesaver. Just sit back, relax, and don't stress"

"I was worried about possible side effects but I didn't experience ANY. No headache, no nausea, no dizziness. I ate indian food for lunch about 2 hours after taking my pill. You'll be fine."

"This pill is very trust worthy! I am 17 years old, turning 18 and had unprotected sex with my boyfriend for the first time. He had gotten off inside of me around 10pm. The next day I went out and got plan b and took it around 5pm and took the next pill 12 hours later. I started researching and freaking out and I realized we had donei t on the exact days I was supposedly ovulating! Thank goodness my period started two weeks later on the exact date it was suppose to. I had minor stomach pains and spotting from the pill a few days after take but nothing major. Stop stressing, the pill works."

"I'm 21 years old and me & my guy use protection every time. This particular night he got too excited & pulled the condom off. Unfortunately it was the day I ovulated. I'm working and in school so having a baby right now is not in our plans. I went to the pharmacy and got the pill for $50. It was around 3 hours later when I took the pill. I had some cramping and nausea for two days after the pill. My period came on at the usual time 2 weeks later. It was a lot heavier than normal, but I wasn't pregnant. I came here to read reviews before my decision, so I hope my story can help other women or couples."

"January 5th I was ovulating and me and my boyfriend hooked up, he came inside of me and I was totally freaking out. Went to Walgreen's to buy this wonderful gift and took it about 7 hours after we did the deed..I just started my period today! I'm so very happy and thankful for plan b, it works ladies!! I was completely skeptical about it since it was my first time taking it. I had mild side effects like it made me feel nauseous, I had a huge headache, I was dizzy but 24 hours after I took it I felt much better. Make sure you take it ASAP before 24 hours is definitely your best bet!!! Trust plan b!"

"Me and my gf met on dec 29, 2015. I thought that I pulled out at right time but am not sure. I got too worried and she took planB after 7 hours. After two days there was heavy bleeding to her with some cramps. Then she fell sick for one week with cold, fever, stomach ache, dizziness and head ache. The symptoms are severe that I was too worried and thought of taking doctor appointment. But after one and half week she became normal but suddenly breast tenderness started, there was enlargement in breasts and soreness troubled her a lot which lasted for two days. Finally, today she got her period which is four days earlier to her regular cycle. It worked :) The symptoms are common please don't stress yourself a lot."

"Let me just start off by saying that I was in the same situation as all of you. I am not going to say not to stress because thats honestly impossible. Yes, reading these reviews gave me some sort of peace of hope, but then I'll stumble on the reviews where it didn't work and I knew that I was going to be part of that 5%. I had unprotected sex with my ex and he came inside me. Figuring this out, I rushed home and bought the pill and took it about 1 1/2 after the deed. I believe I was in my ovulating week but I wasn't fertile. My period was supposed to come a week and 10 days after and let me tell you that it was the longest 10 days of my life but it came on the same day. I hope it works for all of you. Best of luck"

"Ladies Plan B does work! I had sex with my boyfriend on November 1. So got Plan B two hours later. I only had mild cramps. My period was suppose to be on November 18. I was two weeks late. So I took a pregnancy test. It was negative. I knew I was going to miss my period because I was taking my finals and was stressed out of mind. I waited for my next period andI I only had brown discharge and very small spotting. I continued to wait and decided to take a blood test. The results showed 0 HCG and stated not pregnant. I knew I wasn't pregnant the whole time, because I didn't "feel pregnant" and I continue to experience my period symptom which include acne. And finally I had my period. Be patient!! I waited two months for mine."

"I made a mistake & had sex with out protection with my boyfriend, he didn't pull all the way out & we were going crazy. I waited 1 day after we had sex to take the pill, later that night my stomach was cramping up & I felt like I was going throw up but I didn't. This was my first time taking a plan b and I really was scared that it wasn't gonna work. I read all different reviews and I was so scared, my period was suppose to start January 11th and it came on a few days early and I'm so happy!"

"When me and my husband have an accident (which was like only 2 times) I took this pill right away and it worked. Well the third time, it didn't work so well. I am now almost 23 weeks pregnant, not planned but more of a surprise. I guess it was meant to be but we wanted to wait at least another year to start our own family."

"I took the plan B pill 10 hours after having unprotected sex and one day before I was suppose to ovulate. I was taking ovulation tests so I know I ovulated the day after taking the pill, it did not prevent me from ovulating and I am now pregnant."

"I'd be lying if I said this was the first time I've taken Plan B due to a sexy time slip up. In fact, it's the third. The first was 10 years ago (when it wasn't OTC and 2 pills). The most recent was Dec 18th, which, by the the was ovulation day, I didn't realize until after the fact. I took Plan B maybe two hours afterwards. Over the weekend I was super fatigued and crampy as well. The following week I felt fine. My period was to come on New Years Eve, that Monday the cramps started back up on Tuesday I was spotting. On NYE my period started and ended on the 4th. Today, I noticed a little bit of spotting, but I've had that happen before with Plan B. So, not preggers and SO is finally calling about a vasectomy."

"To start off I have unprotected sex with my boyfriend all the time, but I do not recommend this for anyone. We have been lucky so far and now that I'm on the implant birth control. But at time we would have an accident or he just really wanted to know what it had felt like to cum in me. And we have gotten the pill the next day and it has worked for me. The only side effects that happened to me and this was every time was, when I had taken the pill I would get a period (3Days) and then miss a period the next month and then my period would go back to regular. So if my period was May 1st and I had taken the pill on May 12, I would get my period another time the same month, skip June, and have my period again on July 1st (or around the day)"
