Alpharetta Speaks Out: Plan B Pill

Patch users respond to FDA's lowering of the emergency contraceptive age requirement.

Yesterday we asked you what you thought of the FDA's lowering of the Plan B pill age requirement to 15, and you let us know!

Here's what some Patch users from Alpharetta and the area shared with us:

The Plan B pills that some sell like candy are NOT medicine. They are a very harmful and dangerous dosage of the hormonal steroid progestin that has already been proven to cause breast cancer, blood clots, cervical cancer, arterial plaque, and liver cancer in far lower dosages (birth control pills). – jc

Additionally, they deplete a woman’s body of bone mass and several important nutrients.
They have also been shown in several medical studies to cause birth defects. – Celeste
