I know for a fact that the Plan B pill does in fact cause a miscarriage. I was very angry when I saw the advertisment indicating that it doesn't. With all your symptoms, you are having a miscarriage. I would call my OB/Gyn and schedule an appointment. I'm sorry for the lost.
Supposedly Plan B is not supposed to cause one, though with the bleeding you are having it may have done so. Make an appointment with you OB/GYN to see what's going on... good luck.
You may be having a miscarriage but it can also be that the Plan B caused the positive result. One of my close friends took the pills and shortly after took a pregnancy test, which resulted in being positive. On the next day she went to her clinic and took a blood pregnancy test and it resulted negative. Her doctor explained that Plan B can make urine pregnancy test results come out positive. So... you might be miscarrying or your result may have been positive because of the pills and you just got your regular period. Hope you can find out what truly happened. Good Luck!
Thank you both for responses. I've made an appointment with my OBGYN, but I'm already almost positive I'm no longer pregnant. Any woman who's been pregnant knows the feeling of having something in her stomach -- and you definitely know when you don't have that feeling anymore.
I just called the Plan B 1-800 number, and while they reassured me that Plan B is supposedly not capable of causing a miscarriage, the woman I spoke to also acknowledged that they have never conducted any studies on women who are actually pregnant.
I'm adamantly pro-choice, and I'm glad Plan B is on the market. But...ironically, being pro-choice, it feels a little funny to have a miscarriage triggered without...choice? :/ I didn't want to be pregnant right now, but feeling like I just inadvertently caused a miscarriage feels kind of weird.............
Hi, I’m late to the thread. I had the exact same experience. You are not alone!!!! I took plan b about 46hrs after a condom slipped off with my partner. Within a few days, I had the all too familiar feeling that I was in fact pregnant. I confirmed the hunch with two tests, both positive results. Over the following week, I was very tired, dizzy, could not stand most of the time, and felt painful contractions. In sum, I knew I was having a terrible reaction to the plan b, and I could not take it back. Worse, it took three long and painful weeks of cramps, sadness, and generally feeling like I had never been so ill, before I began bleeding. In that time, I sadly watched the first response pregnancy tests show lighter and lighter lines. I never wanted to have an abortion!!!! Devastated to this day. I am late-twenties, very healthy, and have never experienced something so devastating. Think twice before taking this drug if you have already ovulated!!! It would have been more humane to have a medical abortion and it would have been healthier for me in a multitude of ways.
