    I would talk to your Darling Husband about it. Personally, I wouldn’t want to have a child if I was just married and/or having financial trouble.

    I would not want to have a child before being financially ready. I wouldn’t worry about jinxing your future kids. If you are actually worried about the side effects (which I don’t believe cause future harm) than just speak to the pharmacist about it.

    I took plan b on our honeymoon within 24 hours of our “whoops”. I’m 12 weeks pregnant tomorrow! It’s fine for us now, by it was quite the surprise. Don’t count on plan b!

    @Milan21xx:  It is needed after missing two pills. As PP said though it isn’t 100% effective.

    @Milan21xx:  Definitely take it if you’re not ready for kids.  Better safe than sorry.  You won’t jinx anything or risk never being able to get pregnant/carry a baby.  You will be fine!  I’ve taken the morning after pill twice in my life and my uterus is still in tact!

    People say no one is ever really ready for a baby, but i understand the financial strain for sure. I got pregnant after an oopsie, (i miscarried) but it was scary for sure. I had no idea what to do, and i was very sad. Now im sad i miscarried… but its terrifying if its not something you want at that time. Good luck ๐Ÿ™‚

    @Milan21xx:  it sounds like your hubs is in agreement that a baby wouldn’t be good right now, and his hesitation is just that he thinks you are over reacting? I would get plan b then. Better safe than sorry right?

    @Milan21xx:  If you arent ready take the pill. It wont harm your chances in the future because its just a large dose of the same hormones typically in the pill. Its not a sure thing like a PP said, the sooner you take it the more effective it will be.

    You need to talk to your husband first. Did you agree on TTC or waiting for kids? It wouldn’t be right to do this behind his back. You need to talk about it first. There is never a perfect time to have a baby. There will always be something going on. Babies don’t have to be super expensive if you can coupon, budget, breastfeed, have medical insurance, and can have a family member watch them or find a home-based daycare. But if you’re thinking of the morning after pill then you probably aren’t ready. But you should still speak with him first.

    If you don’t want to be pregnant, take plan B. it’s not a big deal, just a high dose of the birth control hormones you are already taking. You don’t need a Rx, you can just get it at the pharmacy counter. It will not cause an abortion. If you are pregnant it won’t do anything. But the sooner you take it after unprotected sex, the more effective it is. So if you decide to take it, do it right away.

    It might make your tummy upset, but the newer versions are much gentler, and I’ve taken it a few times and never had a problem. As for the future, it won’t effect your future fertility. Well, maybe if you took it all the time, as your only form of birth control, it could be a problem, but once is totally fine.
