Doctor :   hi
User :   Hi was wondering how many times the plan b pill can be taken?
User :   the condom broke and I've actually taken the plan b pill twice before for the same reason
User :   So this would be my third time unfortunately
Doctor :   it is a drug not to be used regularly as it contains high doses of hormone
User :   So should it still be effective if used this third time
Doctor :   if in situations like as you mentioned the condom broke you can take the plan b
Doctor :   it will be effective how many times you take
Doctor :   what needs to be observed is
User :   okay because i read somewhere that it can only be taken 3 times or something and that it won't be effective if it is used
Doctor :   taking it in too short internals many times will have side effects
Doctor :   no that's not true
User :   oh okay the last time was last year
Doctor :   than no problem
User :   okay thank you very much for your help!
Doctor :   it is safe to take occasionally
