David Bryant, M.D.(Maternal-Fetal Medicine Specialist)answered(7/25/2012)There are no long term side effects from this. However, it is concerning that you have to resort to "emergency" contraception so often. Perhaps you could talk to your women's health care provider about longer acting methods such as a Mirena IUD?
Melicia Escobar, MSN, CNM(Certified Nurse Midwife)answered(8/23/2012)I agree and am equally concerned with the frequency of your plan B use. Looks like you definitely need a new plan A! I encourage my patients to be real about their ability to take pills on time. If you're a set it and forget it type of girl, either the Mirena or Paraguard IUD may be right for you.
