  • It's only effective at preventing conception, if you're already pregnant it won't cause a miscarriage.

  • Why would you take the pill now anyway? Do you want to miscarry? I think there is an abortion pill for that...

  • They just gave you Plan B? Did you ask for it or anything? I find that a little messed up and this is why I always ask what they are giving me before I take it. If you are already pregnant, no you will not miscarry from it.

  • Why on earth would someone give you plan B without you knowing about it??

  • No. Plan B does not cause you to miscarry. I believe it helps prevent fertilization, and possible prevent implantation of a recently fertilized egg.  I'm sure you will now, in the future, not take any pill without asking what it is. Why were you given this medication?  Are you pregnant?  Did you go in to the doctor and tell then that you recently (within 72 hrs) had unprotected sex and were worried about becoming pregnant?  This seems weird to me, and I might not go back to that particular clinic.  Either that, or you misunderstood something.  Or she told you, but you didn't hear her?  Is that possible?
