Hi

I read your query and I understand your concerns.

Following is my reply

1. Since you have taken medicines for plan B the pregnancy of chances are almost nil.

2. Take the medicines as prescribed and complete the course.

3. Dont worry about pregnancy.

4. Next time be oral contraceptive or other form of long term medication.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

There are 2 tablets in pack .

each tablet to be taken 24 hours but within 72 hours.

Periods might get irregular for next cycle only due to pills.Chances of pregnancy are very low. almost nil.

There may be abdominal pain and vomiting as side effect. Dont worry. Not major.

I had mirena coil fitted on 15th Oct. Since then, I have bled constantly. Around the same time I became bloated and have had an upset stomach since. It's not my Ulcerative Colitis as scope, biopsies and stool/blood samples are clear, but docs reckon IBS. I'm no convinced. Any connection to Mirena??

Hi,I have a history of kidney stones but prior to this time I never had pain in my belly button. This time I starting having pain in belly button then lower right side now it has moved into back. It is now dull pain in lower rt and back. Sharp pain when I touch my belly button or bend over. My doctor says it is not appendicitis and has checked liver, pancreas, and other organs in abdominal area. I have naseau but have not thrown up. Any ideas? Could this be another stone?

Hi, I have had chronic abdominal pain, lower right quadrant, for nearly 4 years now. I had diverticulitis and had 14-16" of my sigmoid colon removed. Shortly after that it was determined that my gall bladder was not functioning properly and was removed. The pain never went away. Since that time, the gall bladder removal I have craved chocolate like you wouldn't believe. I have had MRIs, CT Scans, endoscopy, colonoscopy and all the specialists can tell me is what I don't have. No one seems to care to find out what is causing it. I recently heard about Sphincter of Oddi Dysfunction. It seems possible. Would that condition cause my body to crave chocolate as a form of combat for the symptoms? I am a 43 year old male, I currently weigh about 210, up 20lbs since the surgeries.

I had acute portal vein thrombosis (PVT) two years ago and was placed on Warfarin . Imaging at that time also confrimed chronic pancreatitis and gallbladder sludge . My gallbladder was removed in March of this year. Now my platelet count is low (since December of 2011 thrombocytopenia with 75,000), and I have chronic brown loose stools that float, and are oily. I have been off of the warfarin for about a year. My gastro doctor says he can do nothing about the stool problem and he will see me in another year. Bone marrow and liver biopsies show nothing (other than some fibrosis and scarring in the liver). Everyone has been so focused on the PVT, I am afraid that perhaps they should be focusing on possibilities of pancreatic cancer. Should I push for more imaging around the pancreas?
