  • I'd say it's fine to take it now. It might make you nauseaus though.

  • 12hrs?? when they gave me mine a couple years ago they said anywhere between 12 & 36 hours after the first...i wonder if they've changed the type of pill they use...

    be careful though, the morning after pill is not 100%...a friend of mine must have been extra furtile or something because she picked hers up & took it 5hrs after the sex had taken place, & now she has a BEAUTIFUL little girl =)

  • It will make you sick to your stomach i'd say. I took that once, and I got SO sick. Set an alarm and get up and 130 or 2 and take it.

  • There's a reason you're given specific instructions to follow. Set your alarm.

    The "morning after" pill doesn't prevent pregnancy. It prevents ovulation. If fertilization has already occurred, it won't do a damn thing.

  • anonymous is correct. it is a hormonal pill, its pretty much 5 BCP in 1, and you dont want to overload, it can have very bad effects, and if you are pregnant, you are pregnant, the morining after pill just delays ovulation.

  • Why are you asking this in pregnancy? If you don't want a baby then you should have used other BC methods...

  • Anon 850... shes asked it elsewhere first... didnt you read the q? Sometimes methods of bc fail, its not her fault exclusively

  • i work at Planned Parenthood, and i hear this question alot. here is my advice.
    you can actually take them at the same time and they will work, taking them closer than 12 hours causes nausea in some people.
    i am hoping you know that Plan B doesn't terminate a pregnancy already in place, it simply stops ovulation to prevent pregnancy. Plan B is not meant to be used as a birth control, so in the future make sure you use a contraceptive.
