My fiancé has decided to start taking oral contraceptives again after a 4 month break. She took the first pill from a new prescription, but on the same day she also took Plan B which was also prescribed. We have not had intercourse. Are there any clinical reasons to take both?
Hi Pgg523' It seems like some info may still be missing from this.But from what i know i don't see any reason for restarting birth control this way.Maybe the clinic doctor wants to make sure she is not preg. Outside of that with no sex and just starting the pill i can't find anyreason to be using the plan b at the same time... Let her know this may throw off here period.FOR A month or two not always but it can..This question well be left open so if any of our ladies that know more than me they well follow up.If not sure still call the office and ask the nurse but just continue taking the birth control every day as prescribed and there won't be any real problems..Hope this helps and have a good weekend...

Truthfully there is no reason other then prevention of pregnancy. Was it a gynecologist that prescribed it? It disturbs me because I am always preaching about not using these meds except in emergencies because of the large dose of hormones. What did the dr tell her about it? I've never heard anyone else say this. I just went all over the manufacturers web site, again. There is still nothing on their about using it this way.
