I don't know if it's exactly what's called Plan B in the US. It was just called emergency contraception, and I took it because of a broken condom.

It felt like a really awful period, with extra cramping and such. I wouldn't have wanted to have to work during it, but it wasn't unbearable. Just unpleasant. But definitely worth it for peace of mind!

Not personally, I have a friend who did. It made her very sick to her stomach and caused her to vomit a lot.

I have never taken it but only would if I needed it. Not from just wanting to have careless sex. I am on BC pills and I use condoms so it would be terrible to just be like "I'll take this because I wanted to have super reckless unprotected sex over and over again!"

Plus it's expensive. Like $50.

I've taken Plan B once and, about 4 years later, took Ella. (Both Morning After Pills.) I didn't take them because I am "super reckless" I've been having sex for well over 20 years, and sometimes even while using well planned birth control, accidents happen and I don't want to get pregnant because of an accident. Our family is complete, 3 kids. I've had 5 pregnancies with 2 miscarriages, and neither my husband nor myself want to take a chance with my poor health and any more pregnancies.

I had no side effects from either drug, I got slightly queasy after taking Ella, but our toilet backed up a few hours after I took it and I had to bail the thing out, and that could have been the reason I felt a little sick. As soon as I washed my hands and sat down, I was fine. The periods after each Morning After round were fine. No excessive cramps, no problems.

The Morning After Pills are a great occasional use contraception for when a condom breaks, or when any other planned birth control goes awry. They are also used extensively in hospitals after rape. (What could be worse than having to carry a rapist's spawn? Not much in my estimation.)

My use was responsible. Both times we had an accident and semen may have gotten into my unprotected vagina. I wasn't going to take a chance on bringing a life into this world without planning. We're finished having children and IMO the most responsible choice was to prevent conception.

The drugs worked both times (or I wasn't even ovulating when I used them, so there was no need for them, but I wasn't willing to take a chance) and I have had no sequlae or additional problems with my cycle or my health. Using these meds was a hella better than getting pregnant when that wasn't our plan or desire.

I have once for peace of mind after a condom failed, didn't have any any side effects from it.

Yup, condom got "lost". Thing slid off. At the time I was 18 and not on birth control so it was our only preventative method. It really is a great pill! Very expensive though, but we didn't want to risk not taking it. Didn't have any side effects or feel ill. It just prevents your egg from dropping just in case. No biggie. It's like super birth control! Unfortuntely I don't think many people REALLY know what it is. It's not an abortion pill.

Yes, once.

It was terrible. I took it after I was raped and went to the hospital.

I was sick for a week at least. My hormones were so out of whack, too. I was overly emotional, smells and sights made my stomach twist and turn.

I hated it so much. I never want to have to take it again.

Sorry that happened to you.

In answer to the OP, I have taken Plan B twice. Both times were uneventful. No side effects at all. Maybe because I'm overweight the medication did not have such a strong effect on me? I'm not sure. But I would take it again in a heartbeat if needed.

Yes. It comes with 2 pills. You take the second one 12 hours after the first. It gives you pretty intense PMS symptoms, like cramps, etc. For me, it threw off my period by a week too. Basically, it's the equivalent of taking 2 birth control pills at the same time.
