Customer Question

My boyfriend and I have had unprotected sex 5days ago. A hour after the unprotected sex, I took a Plan B pill. Well just yesterday I started having side affect just like the box that the pill came in said I might have. And today I had a spotting of brown discharge. Well I'm just curious if you think I'll get pregnant or what does this mean? I'm just freaking out. Because I've asked a bunch of trust people and they all think I'll be fine but I'm still scared.

Myself Dr Josh- and I’m happy to help with your question today.

I can understand your concern.

Well, first of all i want to assure that there is no chance of pregnancy from such act.

No need to take stress. You are absolutely safe.

According to studies, As such plan b pill is completely safe when taken within 24 hours, it is about 95% effective.

You have taken after 1 hour of unprotected sex, So i am pretty sure, that you would not get pregnancy.

Please don't panic.

Regarding spotting/ brown discharge this is related with side effect of this pill.

It could cause hormone imbalance. No need to worry.

You are not pregnant.

Please stop searching for your symptoms on Dr. Google. This may give confusing results.

Please don't search on internet. Many of the articles, are written by unprofessional, and may only lead to stress and worry.

You are completely safe and don't have pregnancy.

Hope this helped
