Today it’s getting real personal. I wanted to chat with you about something you may think is “taboo” and even shameful, even though it’s not. It’s not something to be embarrassed about and I’ve done it myself not once but a couple of times. It’s called Plan B One-Step emergency birth control.
Every woman’s situation is different but this was my situation. I was in a committed relationship for over 3 years and off birth control, because I wanted to track my cycle naturally and be more in tune with my body. I had been tracking my cycle for about 2 years and really had it down to a T.
While we were on vacation, my boyfriend and I had a little incident and the condom broke. This was my worst nightmare, because I wasn’t on birth control and I was smack dab in the middle of my cycle and probably close to ovulation.????♂️
“Shit” was literally the only word I could say.
I was not ready to start a family, but then I remembered that Plan B is sold in stores, over-the-counter!
That next morning, I headed to CVS and purchased Plan B. It was easy to find in the family planning aisle. I took the package up to the pharmacy and bought it. They didn’t ask me for an I.D. or prescription, because it’s not required. It’s as easy as grab, pay, go!
I immediately took the pill, because the sooner you take it, the better it works (must be taken within 72 hours of contraceptive failure or unprotected sex**), and I was in a hurry to put my mind at ease! **Always use as directed
Plan B One-Step is often associated with “party girls”, but as you can see from my story, there is no specific “type” of women who uses Plan B One-Step emergency contraceptive.
The women that use Plan B are all from different walks of life, are all different ages (18-25+), and all have different situations and reasons for turning to Plan B for support.
Plan B One-Step is not something scary, it doesn’t affect an existing pregnancy, and the active ingredient, levonorgestrel, is the same ingredient in many common birth control pills, only at a higher, single dose in this product. Plan B is not something to be shameful or embarrassed about, it’s about taking control of your body and your life.
I hope this post will give you the confidence and information you need to help you avoid an unplanned pregnancy. If you want to learn even more about Plan B One-Step visit letstalkplanb.com.
