I was nervous, because I actually took the pill during ovulation I took it after s*x the condom popped. My cycle is always on time and very normal so I know when it comes on but I was heading to cycle day 31 and I was like losing my mind. Wondering if I was pregnant. so I took a pregnancy test and it was negative then the next day when I looked at the test again it was a very faint line. It gave me a false positive then once the afternoon hit thats when my period came on.When I say I was so relieved, I was so relieved.🤣🤣🤣. LADYS DONT TAKE THE PIlL DURING OVULATION ITS TO RISKY

Anyone can understand that it's the same ingredient as Plan B, but manufacturers make a huge difference. First time in five years that I choose something else (this) over Plan B happens to be the first time emergency contraception doesn't work for me. Seems too coincidental. Usually I get cramping and uterine shedding soon after Plan B, didn't feel or get either with this one, which should've been more cause for concern looking back, but oh well. Just spend the extra!

For everyone saying that “Plan B is better,” this pill has the same exact ingredient, same exact dosage. The ONLY difference is the name. It’s like taking Advil vs. generic Ibuprofen. It will work the same. So far, so good for me. There are a ton of factors into getting pregnant and there is always a risk of pregnancy with any form of birth control. Odds are though, you’re better off taking this if you had unprotected intercourse than risking having a kid, because kids are a LOT more expensive, lol.

Zero stars. Took this not even 12 hours after intercourse and I’m now pregnant with my 4th child. Due in May. Don’t go with this brand. Spend the extra money and get the Plan B!

Same ingredients as the more expensive brand. Just know that it’s less effective if you have a higher BMI. Also, it does not work the same after ovulation. try to take before you ovulate if you take a pill after ovulation chances, go up 60% chance of getting pregnant

I have had periods all my life like a regular female has. I have NEVER experienced these kind of cramps in my life. I woke up too lower abdominal pain, lower back pain and feeling nauseous as well as having diarrhea. I will now forever stick with the original plan b. This generic one gave me too many side effects.

Really great alternative for Plan B, works just the same & a bit more affordable. Only side effects I notice for me is nausea and grogginess, sometimes affects my mood, last for a couple of days but it’s not unbearable.

Okay I took this type of plan b before nothing happened the second time around omg I thought I missed my period then bleeding came for 15 days cramping headaches uncomfortable I never had this happen to me before with a plan b. I went to the er because I thought I was having a miscarriage because of the blood it was so much and cramps. But after the 15 days I was okay.
