... Should I get the plan B pill or am I okay? I am a little worried. I've heard that you are pretty much in the clear after about 7 days of starting the pill. I just wanted to be sure before I went and got the plan B.
Many OB-GYN's will tell you to be careful the first month but that is kind of "old school". They used to think it was safest to wait a full cycle before they considered you protected but the manufacturer testing shows you are protected after seven days of active pills. I think too, that sometimes the GYNs say one month because if they told you a week you'd be pushing it to a few days after starting. If they tell you one month, perhaps you'll at least wait a few weeks and by then you'll be safe! Let me tell you a little secret. All Plan b does is delay ovulation a few days-that is all it does. When you take birth control pills, you dont ovulate and if you dont ovulate in then why would you need to delay ovulation? Birth control pills are much more superior protection than Plan b any day! I dont know why all you younger women think that Plan b is the end all in protection but it is not even all that effective!
