5/5. People need more facts on this and then there would be a lot less abortions in this country!

Good point sunshowers; there are so many pharmacies on my side of town that it never occured to me that they're sparse in other areas. I used Plan B awhile ago and while I'm very grateful it was available and that I didn't need a prescription, the reaction I had to it definitely gave me a reason to think a lil harder about my decisions from then on. I was nauseous and dizzy and had some weirdness with my period-I was on my period at the time and it stopped, then came back a few days later so heavy and with such bad cramps I thought I might have to go to the doctor to make sure everything was ok. It worked, though, and my period went back to normal after a couple of months. Note to self: prevention is preferable to treatment.

Swedeybebe, I agree that it's not cool. Honestly, if you have moral issues that conflict with DOING YOUR JOB, then you should choose a different line of work. People who have moral issues with nudity don't become strippers. Jehovah's Witnesses don't become doctors. Imagine if policemen were allowed to choose whether or not they would enforce controversial laws due to their own personal beliefs? The justice system would crumble. And AnnaLove, it's not always easy to find another pharmacist. Some people live in very small towns way out in the middle of nowhere, where there are only one or two pharmacists. If they are refused the pill, they could be forced to drive hours away to find the next pharmacist... only to be refused there as well. Keeping in mind that many people don't have a car at their disposal, and that the pill is only effective within the first 72 hours, these delays could have terrible consequences.

Damnit, I would have gotten 100%, but I went through it too quickly and read the last question wrong. Grrr...

Thanks DearSugar! I always thought Plan B was like an abortion if you accidentally got preg. I'm not against abortion for everyone, but I couldn't do it myself (as I recently found out from experience, lol). I think it's fine if a pharmacist does not want to dispense you the pill. Contraceptives are a big moral issue for some, and it's not that hard to find another pharmacist.

Yes, this I know, cjmara! I just think its a ridiculous addition to the law. Loving the vending machine idea, LOL!

Swedeybebe: Although it's true and really sucks that a pharmacist can refuse to give you Plan B, you can always request another pharmacist, or that pharmacist needs to get one of their coworkers who doesn't have a problem with dispensing it to do so for you. They should just have a vending machine that you can go to. Machines don't have morals :)

I also chose an incorrect answer for question one (but was tempted to choose "all of the above"). Though I knew that Plan B would "prevent an egg from getting fertilized" and it wouldn't "affect a fertilized egg if it's already attached to your uterus," I did *not* know that it would "prevent an already fertilized egg from attaching to your uterus."

Plan B is actually a progestin hormone (levonorgestrel) that is typically found in birth control pills. It actually changes the womb and the cervical mucus to make it harder for a fertilized egg to implant. In California, you DO NOT need an Rx for this if you are 18+ years of age. You can actually go to a pharmacy and request to purchase from a pharmacist. But this is the part that gets me- a pharmacist can actually choose NOT to sell Plan B to you if they have a moral issue with it. I don't think its right for a pharmacist to push a moral issue on a patient in need. Not cool!

Gab6784, plan b is far from the abortion pill! The first question tripped me otherwise I would've gotten 100%. I had to do a paper on this and believe me, you learn a lot about your state's pharmacy laws and women's reproductive rights and it's scary.

Hmm I always thought Plan B was the abortion pill :\

Darn, I thought it was 89% and I picked lower. Darn 4/5.

oh wow 89%! i thought it was much less. I want to add that there is a lot of misinformation going around about this pill, far from what this quiz (surprisingly) covered. A few years ago I was on the nuva ring and it unnoticeably fell out during sex. I found it two days and three unprotected sexes later and freaked out. I wasn't even sure if there was a possiblity of me being pregnant since I had been using the ring consistently before. So i went to a local PP to discuss everything. But as soon as they heard that I wanted Plan B, they basically just thrust the package at me, charged me $50 and said that my period should be induced within a week. No one really talked to me at all! So I took the pills, they didn't make me sick. But two weeks later, nothing happened. So I called back the PP and a woman said, "I have no idea who told you that it would induce your period, but it is not going to do that." She did apologize for the misinformation I received at her office. So my period and everything was supposed to be right on schedule, and it came and I was extremely relieved! Then I switched off of the ring back to the pill right away. Did not even want to risk going through that again!
