I had taken 3 plan b's in one week... I had sex with my boyfriend early tuesday morning, no condom because he didn't bring one and in the mood I said it's okay. Took plan b 2am wednesday morning (worked all day tuesday). Had unprotected sex again friday around midnight- till maybe saturday around 3am then took the plan b again saturday morning around 11am. I'm so scared that I went ahead and took a 3rd plan b sunday around 2:30pm just in case, plus I had no side effects so I thought it wouldn't hurt to try one more. I'm supposed to start my period today (monday) and so far I haven't, i'm really starting to panic and basically cried all night. Can someone please let me know if you have a similar story or anything that can help me. I have definitely learned my lesson.
It should NOT be "okay" for a partner not to use protection! You need to learn to say no before you get yourself in trouble and that boy will be long gone and will not stand by you. I worked in a family planning clinic and have seen it happen too many times to count! He has no respect for you and you are letting him show no respect by saying it is okay. You are going to wind up pregnant or with a sexually transmitted disease. Plan b is not candy and is not meant to be taken like this. It is NOT birth control and shouldnt be used as birth control. It is for emergencies, not because you were too lazy to get protection. There is nothing wrong with you keeping a box of condoms in your bedroom for in case your partner doesnt bring one. Plan b is a huge blast of hormones designed to delay ovulation.
It only decreases your chances of pregnancy slightly and that is why it shouldnt be relied upon as birth control plus the fact hat the more often you take it the less effective it is and it is only about 80% effective in the first place. All those hormones are not without risk. You increase risk of blood clots, heart problems and strokes. One dose of Plan b can delay your period o yours is likely to be off for some time if you didnt end up getting pregnant. You may want to consider getting on a reliable form of birth control like the Pill which is 98-99.9% effective when used correctly and consistently. There is just no excuse NOT to be protected. It is your body and you need to be responsible for what happens to it. If the boy cared for you and your future, he would not be risking to destroy it by having unprotected sex. Being old enough and mature enough for sex means being old enough and mature enough to handle the consequences and to take precautions.
Please understand that the plan b is basically only four regular birth control pills. It is not an abortion pill. You will need to take very good care of your female parts for a while now. There are other things you can do to satisfy your boy friend that does not put your body and reproductive organs at risk. You need to know that this could have damaged your uterus and other organs in your body. It's not a daily usage pill. You need to go see your gynecologist for a Pap smear and check up. I'm am very afraid of the damage you have done!!! A real man would say honey we need a condom because I'm not ready to be a father and I don't want to risk your health or future chances of being a mother. I care for you enough to wait is what should have happened. Please think of your future and hopefully there will not be any residual damage later in your life when you actually want to have a baby with your husband... Your body is not a garbage can treat it with self worth and self respect.
