REMINDER: if you have a vagina and want to use Plan B as an emergency contraceptive, it loses effectiveness if you weigh more than 165 lbs (74.84 kg) and is completely ineffective for those that weight more than 176 lbs (79.83 kg) (x)
Let me spread the shit out of this.
This is horrifying. And sadly true.
There’s actually not currently enough evidence to support the warning that the morning after pill is ineffective for people over a certain weight or BMI. The European Medicines Agency have asked that the warning be recalled, as more research is needed.
Other methods of emergency contraception, like the IUD, are worth keeping in mind though if you’re worried.
