Brief Answer:
no serious problems but

Detailed Answer:
Hi and welcome
Plan b is hormonal contraceptive pills which is used only when there is no another option for unwanted pregnancy and only in recommeded dosage within optimal time after sex. It should not be taken frequently and should not be contraceptive methods since if used more times,it may cause hormonal imbalance in women and some side effects. So it should be taken only as a single dose.
