bike in 9deg weather without a hat for 10 mins. You’ll have the brightest pink blush!!!
In a move that’s bound to frighten everyone, HRA Pharma, the company the manufactures the European version of Plan B called Norlevo has revised its packaging to indicate that the pregnancy prevention medication is not always effective for women over 165 pounds and doesn’t work at all for women who weigh more than 176 pounds.
I just saw this on Facebook and this is scary. I’ve used EC twice before, and both times I was definitely over 165 pounds and probably 170-something. So I guess it didn’t actually work, I was just fortunate enough to not get pregnant? Fuck.
um does height matter? Like there is a huge difference for a girl who is 5’ and a girl who is 6’ and both at that weight.
Did not read the article / will later just thought id ask this now.
I’m having a really, REALLY hard time believing this is true. I’m just curious as how someone weighing over 176 lbs can impact whether a drug inhibits hormones from starting a chain reaction called pregnancy????
Plus this study wasnt done to show women how often it doesnt work it was done to show clinicians maybe sometimes its better to use a copper IUD for emergency contraception instead of just using the pill???
I mean who even knows if these women took the pills correctly? or what other factors they had going on in their lives, like if they had unprotected sex the next day or the next week and then got pregnant several days after taking the pill? I mean there is SO MUCH that goes into studies, and just looking at two data collections is NOT enough to prove anything.
INFO TAKEN DIRECTLY FROM THE ARTICLE: (heck yes i looked it up and read it cmon do u kno me at all)
“Data used for this research came from two clinical trials, neither of which was designed to explore the effect of weight or other risk factors on the effectiveness of EC. Moreover, the number of women in the studies with a BMI of 35 kg/m2 or greater was small, and the number of pregnancies among this group was extremely small.”
i rest my case.
I have no patience for people who walk slowly
