turning birth control into plan b

Last night I had a mishap and the condom broke, and I can't afford plan b this week and if I can't afford that I really can't afford another baby ;] I do have a pack of yaz I never ended up using because I didn't like it and switched to ortho tri cyclin, then we decided since we hardly have sex we can just use condoms.... annnnyhoo how many yaz's would I have to take to stop me from ovulating... 10?
I understand people might be rude and that's fine I can handle it but I'm hoping for at least one useful answer :]

  • If you can't afford it, go to planned parenthood and get it. They should have a sliding scale fee for it. Birth control will not work.

  • Go to your local Planned Parenthood clinic and get the prescription for the actual Plan B. Don't mess around with the Yaz, go for what actually works in the appropriate dosage.

  • Once a very long time ago, I was only 18, I forgot to take my pills for almost a whole month, I just paniced and took 9 pills at once! That night I woke to go pee and suddenly blood gushed out of me all over the floor! It was alot of blood, and very mild cramping. I went back to bed and by moring the bleeding had stopped. There was no moring after thing back then, this was about 25 years ago! But now I told my oldest dd about this, and she said that I was probaly pregnant, but not very far at all, and that caused me to lose the baby, just like the morning after pill. I really don't know much about this, but my dd said that's all the morning after thing is, just a higher dose of BC I"d say 9 worked for me!

  • I guess I could ask my mom to get it for me, I know she would but I didn't want to tell her, its embarrasing!

  • well, bc can work that way, when I was on ortho tri-cyclin and forgot to take it, my dr said that i needed to take two in the morning and two that night. But Yaz is different than that and I don't know how that would work, so I would go to the clinic or Planned Parenthood.

  • Why would you ask your mother to get it for you? Seriously, you're a grown woman right? I would think going do the responsible thing and getting plan B is less embarrassing than getting pregnant, right?

  • I meant pay for it at the pharmacy
