For Emergency Contraception "I’ve Taken My choice 3 times and each time it worked. My boyfriend came inside me around Wednesday 3pm while I was ovulating on my most Fertile day. The next day (Thursday) around 10am so about 19 hours later I took a My Choice pill with some water. Later I started googling and got scared bc everybody was saying how It wont work if your already ovulating which is a lie. The only bad thing about it were the side effects. My breast hurt for DAYS they were so sore and my cramps were unbearable they lasted for about a week straight also my legs were hurting the first couple of days and I had a bad headache. The symptoms are similar to early pregnancy symptoms so I would advice not to google anything just wait the 2 weeks out and try to keep yourself busy. But emergency contraception DEFINITELY WORKS EVEN WHEN YOUR OVULATING! Just take it as soon as possible! I took 4 pregnancy tests they all came out negative and I started my period today so I'm happy!"
For Emergency Contraception "I first noticed this drug while shopping for the actual brand Plan B One Step. I noticed it listed the SAME active ingredient, levonorgestrel 1.5 mg, but was $30 cheaper. It was listed as $12 at the store so I grabbed it. I took it 12 hours after having unprotected sex.......fast forward 2 weeks later and I was pregnant. That pregnancy ended however, rather sad but was a relief since I took this pill to prevent pregnancy. I didn't fully blame the pill for not working that time. This time, 6 months later, I had the same situation happen. I took THIS pill again within 24 hours of having unprotected sex...2 weeks later I'm pregnant. This pill does NOT work as an emergency contraceptive. I don't believe the ingredients are as listed. I definitely would NOT recommend this pill to anyone trying to take the extra step to prevent a pregnancy."
For Emergency Contraception "I promised I would share my experience once my period came! I was on the mini pill version of birth control, but had only been on it a week and taken it a couple hours late a couple times. I had unprotected sex on June 11th and took a plan B the following day, June 12th.. 4 days later, I started to notice some slight spotting which persisted for 3 days. My period was supposed to come on June 29th but it never showed up! Within the spam on June 14th-July 18th (when my period came), I took 3 pregnancy tests and they all came back negative. Not to mention that I received my period July 18th and I couldn't be happier. This product works! You have to just be patient. I was freaking out and totally scared. I probably will never take it again due to how bad the anticipation was and also I take my bc on time every single day now! Be patient ladies! It works"
Frequently asked questions
For Emergency Contraception "Doesn't work. Thats just that. I took both the "preventza" brand & the "my choice" brand..pregnant both times & they were taken within the 48hour window . Waste of money. If you're going to take one let it be the original emergency contraceptive "Plan B" . That is the only one I know that actually worked for me years ago. Symptoms included nausea, sulfur burps, fatigue and a PERIOD ."
For Emergency Contraception "I was sexually attacked about 6 days ago. he finished in me, so early the next day I took 2 of the pills as well as 3000mgs of vitamin c. About 2 days later, filled with anxiety, I was spotting like implantation. scouring the internet for answers. I've found that the pill’s symptoms emulates pregnancy symptoms AND a bit of period symptoms. I had never had sex before this or anything like this so I've been terrified. I normally have irregular periods so I'm still waiting for it to arrive… but after coming across this forum I'm feeling slightly better that I won't get pregnant, this gave me a peace of mind :)"
For Emergency Contraception "Had sex 2-28-21 ( 2 days before ovulating) he came inside me, took the pill the next morning 3-1-21 and a week later had dark brown spotting then went on to normal period for a whole week 3-7/3-13. After that spent the entire month with headaches, dizziness, constantly tired and for a few days sore breasts thought ooohhh no I’m pregnant thinking it wasn’t my period but implantation. I was so worried the entire month, even when I took pregnancy test 2 and 3 weeks after and came out negative. I still had the doubt in the back of my mind. Well I usually get my period exactly the 2nd week of the month and the pill made it come a week early and all those symptoms were just side effects. I got my period a week early again this month and it’s the same as usual flow. The pill worked for me don’t do internet searches it will just make things worse like it did for me and please keep track of your flow days and days up to ovulation!"
