Birth Control Recall!
Awesome. As if we aren’t paranoid enough already about getting pregnant, Pfizer recalled over 1 million birth control packets on Tuesday. Hi, stop having sex immediately! Thanks. I mean, this isn’t a battery that could fry your cell phone kind of recall. This is a ‘Hey, we may have just fried your life/career/bank account’ kind of recall. Excuse my lack of eloquence, but a baby would be slightly less than a miracle right now.
If you take Lo/Ovral norgestrel and ethinyl estradiol tablets, you may want to consider emergency contraception (if applicable), and you should definitely start taking advantage of National Condom Month from here on out. If emergency contraception is necessary, you have 72 hours after unprotected sex to get Plan B One Step. If you are over the age of 17, you can purchase this without a prescription. Check out PlanBOneStep.com to download a coupon for the product. There is still time if you are worried!
