Dear Anon,

Here are the side effects for Plan B, taken from their site www.planbonestep.com

When used as directed, Plan B® One-Step is safe and effective. Side effects may include changes in your period, nausea, lower abdominal pain, fatigue, headache, dizziness and breast tenderness. Some women may have changes in their period, a heavier or lighter next period, or a period that is early or late. If your period is more than a week late, you may be pregnant. If you have severe abdominal pain, you may have an ectopic pregnancy, and should get immediate medical attention.

Lower back pain and pain during urination are associated with a Urinary tract infection (UTI). Please call or visit your doctor asap for an accurate diagnosis of the condition. When left untreated, UTI's can cause a lot of pain and discomfort as well as damage to your kidneys.

Please keep us posted.
