    You know a woman who took it ONCE? So, your answer is no then.

    I know she planned to take it at least twice more, but she was having an issue getting the money for it.

    Once every 4 or 5 months is "regular"?

    If you were to take the morning after pill about 3 times a year, you would probably have some sort of lasting negative effects. Have they tested this yet? Does anyone know?

    Also, they said took it once and thought about taking it 1 or 2 more times in 4-5 months. That makes it 2 to 3 times in 4-5 months. For this type of medicine, that is not healthy.

    If the person I knew could have gotten the money for it 2 more times (assuming she didn't and I just didn't know about it) that would have meant that she would have taken it 3 times in 4 or 5 months. That is most likely more times than it is meant to be taken within such a time frame.

    It is meant to be "emergency" contraceptive. Putting it on the shelf means that people will think it is safe to take every other day for however long they need to take it, which I'm betting it isn't meant to be taken that often.

    So three times in four months is "regular birth control"?

    What do you think? Should this pill be allowed to be sold next to the condoms? They are about $50, according to the article, so people most likely wouldn't be buying them as they do condoms. Also, think of how often the pharmacy is often open. I know that sometimes when I have a cold by the time I can get to the store the pharmacy is closed. The sooner you take this pill the more effective it is. So what do you think?


    I don't have a problem with that. One merely has to show proof of being 17. We should let 5-year-olds buy them? (Just exaggerating to the absurd, btw.)

    Considering that Plan B is an acute dose of the hormones used in regular, daily birth control, which requires a prescription to get and some women cannot get that prescription due to health problems they have, yes. 3 times in four months using a drug that is described as "emergency" contraceptive is too much and needs to be left behind the counter so that the person using it that often understands the increased risk from using it that often (which I'm sure there is). At the very least the pharmacist can take a minute or two to explain the risks and offer alternatives to women who are taking using it as regular birth control.

    How often do you think women fear getting pregnant? Do you think that all single women or women of childbearing age just go out and have sex every night or every other night? The girl I know had sex very little. Those times for her wanting to take Plan B most likely also corresponded with those nights that she had sex without a condom.

    Now, can you imagine a girl who was able to get the money anytime she needed it and who had unprotected sex more than once a week who decided Plan B would work better for her than regular birth control pills? Some like their lives of ignorant bliss, believing nothing will happen to them. Then they get scared and use the quick fix to deal with what may become a problem, with no regard for the future consequences of those actions.
