Purchase Plan B :

Hey what’s up youtubers your boy dr. james ii the fresh pharmacist and if you’re turning in to today’s episode boy probably just had coitus vision oh by the way coitus just means that but i think it kind of has a slightly better ring to it doesn’t it okay so you just engaged in a little coital action yay for you right or huh not so much so what happened either a

Condom broke b your diaphragm dislodge or c now let’s be real honest about this you probably didn’t have a plan a to begin with so keep it honest whatever the case is we are on a limited time schedule right now and the sooner you take action the better so what’s your main option to go to i like to call it a little post-coital contraception so who’s your friend

For today this guy oh plan b just like one’s own painful friends you know you can always count on but how does it work well let me break it down for you so you’re probably wondering what exactly is plan b anyway well it’s an over-the-counter hormonal pill it contains about one point five milligrams of lavona gestural basically it’s the same thing you would find in

Your day to day pad for your girl’s day to day pack birth control pill but what’s the difference the only main difference is that it’s a much higher dose than what you find and you get a package so when do you use plan b so as we said earlier you just engage in coitus and your condom broke your diaphragm dislodged or you just didn’t have any sort of potential to

Begin with so that’s we’re going to use it to help prevent any sort of future for unplanned pregnancies but how do you take it it’s one tablet one shot one kill yeah i probably all want to use the word kill we’ll get to that in a second so plan b when used correctly within a 72-hour window can actually help prevent any unplanned pregnancies from condom breakage

Or unprotected sex so there’s a couple methods for how the medication works in plan games the first one is ovulation it actually prevents or slows down the ovulation of an egg so as a female if you can’t release that egg and now you have sperm entering to fertilize it if there’s no egg there’s no fertilization there’s no baby step two well it actually prevents

Sperm from reaching the well how does it do that so sperm has to swim through the vaginal canal and eventually reach the egg but if there’s a thick cervical mucus it’s kind of like swimming in a pool full of jelly you’re pretty much not gonna make it to that egg so if we can prevent that sperm from hitting that egg again a reduction in pregnancy though there is

No actual abortion so if you take it correctly this tablet can keep you or prevent you from getting pregnant but this is the most important part of the segment you have three days three days is all you have to have the highest effectiveness so if you take in plan b correctly within that 72 hour or a three-day window you have a pretty good chance of not getting

Pregnant there are studies that show that there’s an 85 percent reduction in possibility of being pregnant so that’s about seven out of eight women will not get pregnant if they take the medication correctly how important is it postponing it by just 12 hours increases your risk by 50% 50% increase so it’s in your best interest take that joint as soon as possible

To help reduce any sort of pregnancies so you just took a tablet or you’re about to take a tablet what are the most likely things to expect before you take it maybe some stomach upset especially if you’re the type that gets nauseated after taking a piece of tylenol or something like that you might have experienced a little discomfort there usually what i’ll do

Is expect or suggest go to dramamine it’s over-the-counter commonly use the help with any sort of motion sickness but it can be using this case to help you medicate you in terms of nauseousness or vomiting if you take a man perhaps an hour before you start to take the plan b it might help you in that scenario but of course if anything you want to hit up your

Doctor hit up the local pharmacist just to make sure there aren’t any interactions between this your plan b or any other medications you might be currently taking the main ingredient in dramamine is meclizine which is basically can be used as an antiemetic anti knowledge of medication commonly used for any sort of motion sickness things like that so a couple

Things about plan b that are not true one it’s not an abortion pill it stops ovulation of the egg so that way sperm can’t get to it there’s no fertilization it also stops the sperm from reaching the egg again can’t reach it can’t fertilize it there’s no baby – so if it doesn’t help in regards to the safety of stds it will not protect you from any hiv syphilis

Herpes those are all on the table so we’re not using it for that so i always keep that in mind also if you’re already pregnant it won’t work so you’re not you won’t harm the baby if you did take the pill but it’s not something where if you do know you’re pregnant don’t even bother it don’t even waste the money because it won’t help it won’t prevent the pregnancy

It won’t terminate the pregnancy so don’t even bother going that route okay plan b should not be taken every day it’s one of those things you do once in a blue moon when you just happen to have a slip-up or an accident in actuality we should be using a condom or you should be at least on some sort of long term birth control if they’re shown to be safe and

Effective so if you have to go down to the local parenthood and do what you have to do go ahead and get your prescription get it set up and just get on a daily routine that in the long run is gonna actually save you a lot of heartache a lot of anxiety and a lot of money also how do you know if the medications work so if it’s been a week or more and you still

Haven’t had your period then you might be pregnant at that point you should just go to the store get a at home pregnancy test or goes through look for your primary obgyn doctor just to get yourself checked out just make sure you aren’t indeed pregnant so it’s not uncommon that i get asked can i take plan b on more than one occasion and i mean technically you

Can but but should you really be having that many emergencies where you have to take plan b answer is no so if you find yourself take any plan b that often then you might want to reconsider why are you having these issues i mean if you’re taking that mini plan b’s everyday that’s supposed to add up because these are for sure not cheap i mean you can always go

With the generic route like we said this one was $49.99 this one is $39.99 regardless it’s pretty experienced it’s not something you want to be shelling out each and every or every couple days you’re honestly better off going to a planned parenthood or going to your your primary physician and seeing if you can get maybe a month or maybe a three month supply of

Birth control oh on a side note if you’re on any other medications it’s something you really want to take a closer look at so if you’re on any hiv medications anti-seizure medications mood altering medications a lot of those things can actually cause your body to break down the medication or your plan b really fast so much so that it’s ineffective so unless you

Like wasting your money i would advise you to just go down to your local pharmacist check it out make sure that there’s no interactions that way you can be sure when you’re taking the medication it’s actually effective all right so that’s today’s take-home for plan b you got a small little cliff notes version so you can at least you have some idea of what to

Expect so what’s the main take-home wrap it up use a condom buy some birth control you can easily find it at your local planned parenthood get a month or a three month supply okay so if you have any questions feel free to hit me up on the email below i’ll leave a link below or hit me up on my twitter don’t worry all your information is safe with me i won’t say

A word but in the meantime i remember that little thing that i said about time being of the essence hello remember what we said three-day window the longer you take the worse it is yeah so you’re gonna want to get moving tap your stuff let’s go but actually since you’re here why have you see a little button right down below look right button kind of look like

This yeah you don’t want to press that one well i mean how else you can see all these dope videos at about come out in the meantime i should for dr. james either fresh viruses so next time college boy peace
