I was sick before taking the plan b one step and I was prescribed to take promethazine afterwards for my cold/sorethroat/allergies... i didn't take it yet cause i cant risk the pill being interfered with, if it is even possible. Professional/personal experience would be nice.. actually any help at all would be great. Thank youuu
It wont interfere with the Plan b's actions to take Promethazine. There are no known interactions between the two. I am an RN with years of family planning experience if that helps assure you.
I do want to caution you that Plan b is not as effective as regular oral birth control pills and other hormonal methods. I dont know the circumstances behind why you used Plan b but Plan b is only about 80% effective which only raises your chances of not becoming pregnant by about 5-10% at most. Birth control pills are 98-99.9% effective when taken correctly and consistently as are methods like Nuva Ring, Depo-Provera, Implanon/Nexplanon-all around 99% or better. It is much much better to prevent pregnancy in the first place. If implantation occurs before Plan b is taken, Plan b will not terminate the pregnancy. If you thik you are going to be sexually active, you are much better served by getting yourself on the Pill or a more reliable method. Plan b is not a birth control method and shouldnt be used for that purpose. Again, just providing info because I dont know the circumstances. Plan b is notorious for delaying a womans cycle so you can pretty much expect your period to be late. It also causes side effects very similar to pregnancy symptoms-bloating, cramping, breast tenderness, headaches, nausea etc. If you miss two periods, you should test for pregnancy. You can test earlier but at least wait until you are a week or more late for your next period. Generally, your cycle will return to normal in a cycle or two.
