My girlfriend had an uh oh Saturday night. She had a + opk that day...tested bc of AF issues...then the guy didn't pull out even though he knew it wasn't safe. She took another OPK Sunday and it was negative. She intended on getting the morning after pill yesterday but by the time she got to CVS the pharmacy was closed. All the pharmicies were closed. She is freaking out. Very fertile. We have been reading up on the morning after pill and studies are saying that it helps by preventing ovulation but not implantation...pretty much saying that if you have ovulated, then it's not really going to help. Does anyone have experience with this???
Special thank you to Graysmama for my awesome siggy!
Pretty much what I remember about taking Plan B is that it throws off your hormones and makes you bleed. Almost like a period and have lots of cramps. So it's possible that 'could' prevent implantation. But it's never guaranteed. We had a friend whos condom broke. They immediately got Plan B and they now have an 8 year old.
Here is a website about various herbs that can be used as a natural BC/ Implantation inhibitor
Plan B is most effective if taken within 72 hours of unprotected sex. It will not effect a pregnancy that has already began. Plan B works by preventing or delaying ovulation and by altering the cervical mucus making a hostile environment for sperm.
Another option is to have a copper IUD (Paraguard) placed within 5 days of unprotected sex. IUD's work by preventing implantion and by making a hostile environment for sperm.
