Lost condom, done with babies, freaking out. I don't do well with birth control pills, and now I am super anxious about taking Plan B. Wondering what I can do afterward to put my system back in alignment. I haven't been on the pill in 10 years, I really hate introducing artificial hormones into my body.

think I need to take Plan B- tell me it will be okpost #1 of 61/11/12 at 11:48pmThread Starterpost #2 of 61/12/12 at 5:35ampost #3 of 61/13/12 at 7:23ampost #4 of 61/14/12 at 1:58pm
I took it once ~ in a scenario that was relatively emotionally stress free (was with my fiance, we weren't married yet and not even living together, wanted to wait before starting family) ...but I found it fairly unpleasant, though short-lived. I felt really nauseaus and weirdly, extremely depressed for an entire evening. That was it. I didn't feel that I had to rebalance myself the next day, and I too am sensitive to bcp/hormones.
So, very unpleasant, very brief. Make sure you take it on a weekend or can take a day off. Don't pop it and go to work.
People who fear that if plan b is easy to obtain women will use it like birth control pills are nuts. It's a serious drag.
That said, I wouldn't hesitate to use it again if I had to. I'd just make sure I had a good book, a quiet room, and a sympathetic partner.
GL ... it's never easy.post #5 of 61/14/12 at 2:41pmpost #6 of 62/11/12 at 5:19pmQuote:
Seconding this advice. I took Plan B once, but I waited a number of hours before taking the first dose, and my darling energetic 2 year old DD is the result!
