I had unprotected sex and took a plan. Then had unprotected

Customer Question

Hello. I had unprotected sex and took a plan b. Then had unprotected sex 4 days later and took another plan b. I know this is not the smartest thing to do. Regardless, I started feeling flutters none stop for 1 week and a half. Also, I feel bloated and it looks like my belly is bigger. Is it possible that I am pregnant?

Dear customer

Thank you for staying online.

The symptoms you have described of feeling flutters & having bloated feeling & appearing belly to be bigger does not seem to be due to pregnancy.

These are the side affect of plan B pills as you have taken them twice with very short interval of 4 days because you had another unprotected sexual intercourse.

You have taken both the plan B at the right time to avoid pregnancy.

The most common side affect of plan B are:

  • Nausea
  • Bloating
  • Lower abdominal cramps
  • Tiredness
  • Headache
  • unusual tiredness or weakness
  • Flutters(because of overdosage)

The bloating has caused your belly to bulge.To get relief Take Pepto-Bismol 2tsf thrice a day after meals.Take tab.Ranitidine(Zantac) 150 mg twice a day.Both these are available as over the counter (OTC)without a prescription & will help you greatly in treating abdominal discomfort.

So bot***** *****ne is that your symptoms are not because of pregnancy but due to side affect of the hormonal pills of plan B.

Hope this helped

My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back, I am happy to address follow-up questions.

Thank you.
