Patient :Hey bloc, my gf took a plan b one step pill last night. Its her 3rd time within 10 years. She has more stomach pain then previous but not severe. She has dizziness, nausea, and other standard side effects, but she also has a 101f temperature. Should this be cause for alarm? She took the pill close to 18 hrs ago. Thank you in advance
Thanks for the query.
Plan B can cause side effects like heavy or lighter menses, nausea, vomiting, abdominal discomfort,headache, etc;very commonly. However, fever and pain in the abdomen are rare possibilities.
Kindly consider consulting a physician personally to rule out other causes of fever and pain andomen like intestinal infection, urinary tract infection, gastritis,torsion of ovary, etc;
There is nothing to be very worried about but the fever must be actually treated soon. Drink plenty of water,have a bland diet till symptoms subside and avoid strenous activity.
Hope this helped.
