Clearing Up Common Myths About Plan B One-Step

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #LetsTalkPlanB #CollectiveBias #Ad

Myth #1 – The Plan B One-Step pill causes you to have an abortion.

Many people have the misconception that when they take an emergency contraceptive, they are causing their body to have an abortion. This is absolutely FALSE. After unprotected sex, sperm can float around in the fallopian tubes for days waiting for an egg to appear. If no egg appears, there is no chance for you to get pregnant, which in turn means there is no way that this pill can cause you to have an abortion. Because Plan B works by preventing or delaying ovulation, which is when the egg releases from the ovaries. There is a such thing as medical abortion pills which can only be provided by a doctor, but Plan B is definitely not an abortion pill. It is an emergency contraceptive that helps prevent pregnancy before it begins.

Myth #2 – If I take a Plan B pill today, I can still have unprotected sex for the next 3 days and not get pregnant

Oh ye of little knowledge! If you believed this myth to be truth, I am glad that you are reading this blog post. Plan-B works best if taken within 72 hours after you’ve had one act of unprotected sex (or a birth control failure). When taken properly, Plan B One-Step can help reduce the risk of pregnancy by up to 87%. The sooner you take the pill after unprotected sex, the better. You cannot take the pill in advance and use it as a form of everyday birth control. That is not how it works. Just because you take a Plan B today, do not use that as an excuse to have unprotected sex tomorrow, because the pill is most effective when taken AFTER one instance of unprotected sex. You should use a regular form of contraception if you want to avoid pregnancy.

Myth #3 – Plan B causes you to become infertile.

This is 100% NOT TRUE. There is no scientific evidence that taking an emergency contraceptive such as Plan B will affect your future fertility. The emergency contraceptive Plan B helps to prevent 7 out of 8 pregnancies that might have occurred due to unprotected sex or contraceptive failure. However, just because there is no evidence that it may cause infertility, it does not mean you should take this pill every other day to prevent pregnancy. If you find yourself taking an emergency contraceptive regularly, you should definitively speak with your healthcare provider about a regular form of birth control.

Myth #4 – Alcohol and drugs causes Plan B not to work, so there is no use in taking it after I’ve been drinking the night I’ve had sex.

No matter how hard you partied the night before, the effectiveness of the Plan B One-Step pill is not altered. It is better to take the pill than to risk an unwanted pregnancy due to poor judgement while under the influence. Drugs, tobacco, and alcohol will not stop the Plan B pill from doing what it is designed to do, which is prevent against pregnancy due to unprotected sex. Importantly, if you get sick within 2 hours after taking the Plan B pill, you have to call a healthcare professional to find out if you should repeat the dose. So if you are planning to party hardy, make sure to use your regular birth control.

Myth #5 – You have to be 18 to purchase Plan B and/or you need a prescription from your doctor.

This is absolutely false. There is neither an age restriction to purchase Plan B One-Step, nor is there an ID requirement. The pill is available over the counter and can usually be found on the family planning aisle of most retail stores, including Walmart. You can also use this $10 off coupon!

Baby Grant | An In-home Newborn Session in Alabama

Welcome To The Blog

This was a very special newborn session because this little guy is my nephew! I call him little G (short for Grant – who was named after my paternal grandfather I never got a chance to meet). My nephew was born June 2, 2018 (just 1 day after my birthday – he was trying really hard to make his debut on my birthday though). At only 2 days old, he took his little newborn photos with a setup I made in my sister’s home. Here are some of my favorites from Baby Grant’s newborn session!

“Up the Amp” by 

MAC COSMETICS 💕 I didn’t use a liner to achieve this look…I simply took my time to apply it. This is one of my favorite lipstick from MAC. It’s that go-to color you can throw on for a day or night time look. I love pinks, from dark to light, but this one takes the crown as my fave because of the smooth texture and longevity of it once it’s applied.

Prom Iridescent Glitz Glam

I had an amazing time creating this glam on this beautiful prom client. This was an on-site job and I was eager to make her look amazing for her first prom. When I arrived, she didn’t have a particular look in mind; and neither did her mom and aunt who were there helping her prep for her big day! They all just wanted me to make her look georgeous, so I created this “Glitz Glam” with iridescent glitter to match the iridescent jewels in her gown.

Before & After a Purple Glaze Glam

  Ok. I know what you’re thinking. “Wow she looks rough in that before picture.” And I agree. I do, but to the left you see the transformation using the power of makeup! I started with the brows using Anastasia Beverly Hills Diprow Pomade and the #12 brush also by Anastasia. I then contoured around the brows using the MAC Pro Conceal and Correct Palette in shade Medium Deep. I also used a lighter shade in that palette as a primer for my eyes. I used the Pink from The Brights Eyeshadow Palette by Maybelline for the main color on my lid and used Azure, Noir, Intense Glaze, and Fudge from Anastasia’s World Traveler Eyeshadow Palette around the eye. Ther blue in my corner blended with the pink on my lids makes the lid appear Purple which inspired the name of this looked. I then added some false lashes by Kiss. I topped off the looking using MAC’s Pro Longwear Waterproof Foundation in shade NW45 and highlighted using the Pro Conceal and Correct Palette with a beauty blender. I’m wearing MAC’s Captive on my lips and finished off the look with MAC’s Fix Plus Spray to get a neutral glow. Be sure to follow @Category919 on Instagram for more looks and beauty tips!
