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
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.
