Hi there! I've never really been in a situation where I had to actually take the plan B pill, until yesterday when I had a scare. I posted my problem in the emergencies forum & it turns out i shouldn't have anything to worry about, but this has sparked a question about the pill!
When I was a young teenager, I think I heard about half of my sex educators say that each time you take a plan B pill, it is less likely to be effective. Is this the truth, or were they just saying that to defer us girls from swallowing one every time we had the slightest pregnancy scare? And if it is the truth, why does it become less effective after each dose?
