Just another video on, you guessed it…Plan B One-Step and Next Choice!
Inspired by the many calls I’ve received at work from ladies inquiring about when they should take their birth control pill again after taking the “morning after pill”, I’ve posted the following video:
So, if you haven’t taken Plan B One-Step or Next Choice yet, it’s best to follow the package insert directions that came with your birth control pills instead of taking the “morning after pill” – the birth control pill is more effective! If you’ve thrown out the package insert, just call your pharmacist and they should be able to help you out.
If you’ve already taken the emergency contraceptive, resume taking your birth control pill as soon as possible and continue to take it daily as you’ve been directed. Remember, there are no studies showing how levonorgestrel (the hormone in Plan B One-Step and Next Choice) interacts with any of the available oral contraceptives, so you may want to use a back-up contraceptive method for a good 7 days just in case -depends how much of a worrywart you are!
