    Ectopic Pregnancy Risk: With respect to pregnancy outcomes, the literature suggests an increased risk of ectopic pregnancy with progestin-only oral contraceptive pills that are taken on a regular daily basis. Based on the data from the sources discussed below there does not appear to be an increased risk of ectopic pregnancy with the use of levonorgestrel for emergency contraception or postcoital contraception.

    The side effects are listed here. Are you telling you have done more research than the manufacturers?


    What Are Some Less Common Plan B Side Effects?

    Having already talked about what Plan B side effects you can expect to experience after taking the pills, it’s important to get into some of the less common, more serious Plan B side effects that have been noted. At this point though, I’d like to remind you that these side effects are uncommon and few women who take the pills will experience them. Some less common Plan B side effects include:

    Diarrhea
    Migraine
    Vomiting
    Late periods
    Allergic reaction
    Severe abdominal pain
    Ectopic pregnancy

    Clearly all of these side effects are far more severe than the ones we talked about in the section above and while they are more rare, they are possibilities you need to be prepared for. Of all of them, the ectopic pregnancy is clearly the most worrisome. An ectopic pregnancy takes place when a woman’s egg is fertilized by a man’s sperm but instead of the fertilized egg implanting itself in the uterus, it implants itself in another location. Ectopic pregnancies can be life threatening but there are treatments available for ectopic pregnancies and the success rate for those treatments are as high as 94%.

    Your links do not say "use caution" or that Plan B can cause ectopic pregnancies.

    Read warnings and precautions.

    Doesn't matter. I am not against this drug being available. I question the way it is being made available. I think it is Ironic that other drugs are not getting a pass, and this one that has a significant social impact (or at least people will act like it does) gets a pass.

    There are other drugs which are "getting a pass", specifically the rugs that are safe

    And by law, the FDA is not allowed to base it's rulings on the social impact of a drug. It's decisions are based only on a drugs safety. Congress, or a state, can pass a law limiting the availability of Plan B. The FDA can not. They don't have that authority

    You really have to start paying attention to language used, such as "appears to be." LOL! I've never seen anybody put so much trust in the FDA and pharmaceutical companies before. Your stance on insisting that this drug is "safe" is just foolish. Below is just an example of some pills which have been on the market legally for YEARS with known dangerous side effects.

    Do you not realize that these drug companies have lobbyists in Washington looking out for their best interests. This is just GREAT news for the pharmaceutical company who produces these pills, surely!
