I took plan saw it was expired; and took 4 of my birth

Customer Question

I took plan B saw it was expired; and took 4 of my birth control pills after (I haven't been good about taking them this week) and feel so dizzy and my stomach is upset. I know some symptoms are normal but will they last very long? I'm just worried because I don't get many days off work
JA: How long has this been bothering you? Are you experiencing any vomiting or nausea?
Customer: It's only been about an hour I took them earlier today, I am having some nausea but it comes in waves
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: No I don't have anything else. Just also wondering if it was too much that I took the extra pills- I was just worried as the plan B was expired
