Women, I cannot stress this enough:
If your insurance covers IUD's now and you're worried that might change, get one.
There are some that last 3, 5, and 10 years and they are ~ 99% effective.
The one that lasts 10 years is copper and contains no hormones, if that is a problem for you.
If you decide you're ready to get pregnant, you just get it removed and boom, you're ready. No different from stopping the pill.
I'm on my 3rd one and it's wonderful. No hassle, don't have to remember to take a pill everyday, and I was lucky enough that my insurance covered it so all I had to pay was a co-pay.
Seriously ladies - look into this before it's too late.
Obligatory disclaimer: IUD's do not protect against STD's so you would still need to use a condom if you want to be safe.
>Reproductive health advocates, however, have slammed the rule, which they say will also likely imperil women’s ability to access services like birth control and emergency contraception.
You can get Plan B on Amazon.
They also sell several generic versions, which are cheaper. If you think this is something you might need, I would recommend ordering some now but be aware of the expiration date.
Also remember that Plan B is less effective depending on your weight so look into that too.
Quick note for readers who live in states where they cannot buy Plan B under 18: Amazon sells it as a Prime offering. There are also generic versions that are cheaper, but may not ship as quickly. https://www.amazon.com/Plan-B-One-Step-1-tablet/dp/B00H2D6WUA/ref=sr_1_3_a_it
Yup, I went to check on Amazon, and about 80% of the 1-star review are about how it didn’t work. The rest is about how the box was smashed or how it was expired when the pill arrived.
Another thing, if it has been less than 72 hours since sexual intercourse, you can take emergency contraceptive plan b although since you've already taken a pregnancy test I assume it's been after a missed period so I am sorry if this doesn't apply to you, but it's worth mentioning.
You can order them off Amazon currently. To be clear there is a difference between Plan B and Mifepristone. Plan B is basically a large dose of birth control to prevent egg from attaching even if fertilized. It must be used within 72 hours of initial possible conception. Mifepristone (aka RU-486) is a chemical abortion pill capable of causing the body to eject an existing attached fertilized egg.
People tend to misuse the term abortion pill when discussing the two. https://www.amazon.com/Plan-B-One-Step-1-tablet/dp/B00H2D6WUA
Just incase anyone is scared of that price tag, you can get plan B on amazon for $36.
Also no dealing with religious people at the pharmacy!
You can get the morning after pill on Amazon here But I recommend taking a step away from alcohol until you are older. The morning after pill is your best bet because even if you are not pregnant it won't do any harm to take the pill just in case. The pill works up to 72 hours after the suspected incident. Hopefully this will be a good enough scare to make you more careful in the future. I know it was for me when I went through something similar.
> Dude the plan b pill is not as essily amd readily available
You could get it literally overnighted to you and still have an extra day to take it within it's window of effectiveness.
Also, even if it is behind a plastic screen it is still available to you, which is the OPPOSITE of what you are saying.
Hopping on the top comment and gonna make this big so everyone can see it.
#PLAN B/THE MORNING AFTER PILL IS AVAILABLE ON AMAZON.
It used to be available for Next Day delivery, but as you can imagine, it's going quickly right now.
Amazon link to Plan B. There are also generics that cost much less, but they are scarce right now.
#For it to be most effective you should take it up to 72 hours after sex. BUT it's still effective for up to 5 days, just not as effective.
Please also be aware, if you are heavier than 180lbs it might not work. But it also might.
I am also in TX, u/Hiragae. If anything happens there are networks to help women and girls. I can also send resources and help as well (DFW area).
Do you know if Plan B has an expiration date? I'm considering buying several in case of future emergencies or to give out to those in need.
They're around $50 per dose on Amazon right now
Excellent organization, highly recommend throwing money their way.
Also, Plan B is available on Amazon; just in case anyone in Texas accidentally sleeps with a republican.
>the crazy evangelicals are winning the abortion war and are likely going to be coming after birth control next
They been going after birth control for women for a while now. But its not so much the evangelicals than white old men and that matter white old women. The media and more so feminists love to paint white men as the enemy behind this but its really women who are the leaders of this. Its not surprising women aren't being blamed here. But take Alabama, their governor is a woman who signed the abortion bill there. Notice how the mainstream media isn't talking about that little part?
>The FDA has made it so you can’t mail Plan B.
Then explain why one can buy it on Amazon?
>It’s insane and will end up with more kids on welfare
It will, and there's people here that think removing welfare will cause women to have less kids.
>not to mention more men who can’t get casual sex because the women they want to have sex with won’t want to have a baby with a rando.
Its called birth control for a reason. Ya its not 100% but it certainly reduce the chances. More so the number of women risking this has overall gone down over the years. Primary due to more women being college educated and that making more money.
Reminder that you can purchase Plan B on Amazon, and it has a relatively long shelf life. I bought 4 when they were on sale a few years ago. Two were given away to panicked friends, one was used, and one is being saved for a rainy day.
Yep. Here's the link
Fun fact: Plan B is now available on Amazon Prime.
Damn you’re not kidding.
The only down side is waiting for shipping you would need to have this on hand to utilize it.
Women (and men who want to help out): you can buy Plan B on Amazon.
You can also buy the generic version for cheaper.
You do not need a prescription.
Yes, Plan B is available from Amazon, and a European organization called Aid Access will send mifepristone and misoprostol to the Americas through the mail.
Naturally this isn't for every situation, but this is still an option regardless of where you live (in secret):
Plan B One-Step, 1 tablet https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00H2D6WUA/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_BsfqBbEE2EDBY
Whole lot less expensive.
Not sure if this violates any rules, but plan B is available through amazon. I try to mention it whenever applicable, so pass it on if you want: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00H2D6WUA
if you have amazon prime, you can get plan b from them.
Plan B is now on Amazon at $33.60 today.
Available on Amazon!
I am told Plan B keeps for four years, and it's available on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Plan-One-step-Emergency-Contraceptive-Tablet/dp/B00H2D6WUA
You can buy it on Amazon in Canada.
From this Amazon page:
> Plan B is a progestin‑only emergency contraception product that helps prevent pregnancy when taken within 72 hours of unprotected sex. The sooner you take it, the better it works. Plan B is a backup method of preventing pregnancy and should not be used as regular birth control. Use as directed.
Plan B is $28/pill on that page.
Amazon also sells this equivalent pill, same dose of the same active ingredient for $7/pill.
Where I live, abortion is readily available -- but regardless it would present a huge amount of stress, emotionally and physically, so why not just take a pill, if you're not on birth control?
I have a 14-year-old son who may start having sex any day now, who knows? I'm going to make sure he has a couple of the $7 pills on hand, just in case they would come in handy. SHIT, I need to make sure he has condoms too. He is going to be super-embarrassed when we have that conversation. Too bad, it's necessary.
If you want to use a "job performance" metaphor, then we can say the patient can "fire" their pharmacist and get their medications from one that will provide their medication. It is not as if the pharmacist is revoking the prescription. Why should the government shut someone out of an industry if they don't like one part of the job in some circumstances.
I think another case worth considering is if the state could force pharmacies to produce the drugs used in lethal injection for the death penalty. http://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/pharmacy-groups-balk-supplying-lethal-injection-drugs-n332656
I am not accusing you of this, but I think a good number of people in this discussion just feel like they are "sticking it to religious bigots." and just want to punish religious people who have strong beliefs on this this matter. IMO the issue this law is mean to address is the fact that if you allowed for religious exemptions, in very religious areas it may become difficult to get birth control. We shouldn't lose sight of the fact that this is the issue we want to solve, not forcing religious people to do what we want.
For example, now that Plan B isn't prescription it is possible to get on Amazon with 2 day shipping anywhere in the continental US. I think that is a nifty way around this issue without forcing anyone to participate in something they don't want to.
on Amazon the morning after or plan b pill is 35$
Plan B One-Step, 1 tablet https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00H2D6WUA/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_oCEsBbBRXMGPN

Plan C At Home Abortion Pill
The first thing that someone would need is an active ingredient of misoprostol, one of the two medicines that people can take to have an abortion at home, a micropipette, and a solution with 96 percent alcohol. The process, he explained, is relatively simple. One has to just mix the misoprostol with the alcohol in the micropipette, and then dosing it on the six squares in the card. Then, someone just has to put two of these squares on each cheek, wait a few hours, and repeat the process until all the squares have been used.
Decided I’d be childfree when I was 5 years old.
Husband and I never keep his cream pies as pets.
I’d buy the abortion pill online if needed or drive over state lines if for some reason online stores ran out.
And on that note…
This is awesome. Right up there with the Bio Hackers that put the Plan C at home abortion medication onto a business card.
How did they do that you may be wondering? Well…

Are we sharing helpful online resources?
Here are some helpful links for anyone who needs them.
Well if you’re looking for quality camping equipment, I have some recommendations.
With Roe vs Wade being overturned, here are some methods that seem to be effective and (mostly) safe
Quick disclaimer: I am NOT a doctor, but I do know some things that can induce a miscarriage without resorting to a coat hanger or a push down the stairs. If you can’t get a medical abortion, this is for you.
Riding rollercoasters. The more twists and stops, the better. This can cause enough jostling to do the job.
Spending time (more than 20 minutes) in a hot tub.
Mugwort tea. Keep in mind, if you’re allergic to ragweed, then you’re likely to be allergic to mugwort as well.
A FUCK TON of caffeine. Like, a bunch. I hope you like the taste of energy drinks.
If you do end up pregnant, do not tell anyone; with the way things are going, you could get arrested. Please stay safe.

No, they won’t come after the mail system, they don’t have the man power.
(Source: I had to order Birth Control from India when I was 16 because my state outlawed it.)
I’m sure it’s possible some areas may prohibit it, but for now you can order from Amazon and have a shelf life of a few years.
> Plan B is over the counter and had been for many years; no one buys it by mail.
> Plan B is already available by mail
I guess you're saying you can buy it by mail but everyone buys it over the counter because they're in a hurry?
An observation about price competition:
Amazon sells Plan B for $37.50 (after coupon) and also for $25 for the identical product.
Amazon will also sell you the equivalent medication for $8.
For sure, it’s called My Way
you can get a pretty good deal on it on amazon. https://www.amazon.com/Plan-B-One-Step-1-tablet/dp/B00H2D6WUA
I feel a little weird saying what other people should do, because my real answer is always "people should do what is right for them." My answers about birth control etc. are not going to work for everyone.
That said, I'm going to say what I would do in all these situations:
>Abortion is now illegal in the US, except under the case of rape, incest, or if the pregnant person’s life is in extreme danger.
>We have two women:
>Lilly is a college student. She has a boyfriend and takes effective birth control. Lilly wants children in the future, but she plans to get her degree first and find a job. Lilly is worried that, because abortion is now illegal, her birth control might fail one day and she won’t be able to get an abortion. Lilly also loves being very intimate with her boyfriend. Lilly would love to become a mother in the future and have children, but she is uncomfortable with the chance of that happening right now. What should Lilly do?
Get a long-acting birth control method like an IUD put in immediately. Stock up on Plan B (assuming it isn't banned; as of now you can get it on Amazon but it's not cheap; I'd always have a few boxes on hand if PL laws passed).
Have an emergency plan in place to get an illegal abortion, too: knowing the nearest state where abortion is still legal (if it's state-by-state) and having an emergency fund to get there (boyfriend should contribute half and help formulate the plan); get a plan for getting my hands on black-market abortion pills; etc. Doubtless other women I know have gone through this if abortion is illegal and hopefully other people I know can help.
>Allison is child-free. She does not like children or pregnancy, and the idea of giving birth makes her very uncomfortable. Allison has a boyfriend and takes birth control. With abortion now illegal, Allison is worried that if her birth control fails her, she will not be able to get an abortion. Allison also loves being intimate with her boyfriend, but does not have plans to ever have children. What should Allison do?
Again, an IUD would be a good option to start with. Sterilization may be an option too, although 1. often doctors won't do this surgery on young child-free women, and 2. I think it's a giant overstep for people to demand that women have major surgery to comply with PL moral qualms that they don't share.
So sterilization IF she wants it. But IUD if she doesn't, and a solid plan for getting an illegal abortion and stashing Plan B (as outlined above) as backup.
$38 on Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/Plan-One-step-Emergency-Contraceptive-Tablet/dp/B00H2D6WUA
I've done a lot of exploration. Some thoughts include:
Except on r/IBS, they're not using dehumanizing language to talk about people who don't suffer from it, like r/childfree does about children and parents of said children.
For example: Crotch goblin or breeder.
It's gross. Especially when they're shit talking young kids or babies who had no choice in their existence, and are just being nasty. As well, a lot of posters seem to think "well, don't affect me with your child's existence", which is impossible. They're children. Ever since the dawn of humanity, we've lived in groups and helped build a better society. Every generation has had to put up with annoying children, and they knew they had too because those children would someday be the ones taking care of the society they'd built.
But no, because they've made the conscious choice to hate children (and there's a difference between not wanting kids and being childfree at this point), they feel they should be able to enjoy all the benefits of being part of society (safety, convenience, social opportunities), without dealing with the downside to living in said society (dealing with bullshit). These people should have financial freedom enough without the financial, emotional, and tiring burden of children that they can move someplace where they won't have to deal with children. But they don't. They just whinge on and on.
The worse is when they shit talk BABIES. For crying. Babies cry for everything. Cold? Cry. Shit their pants? Cry. Hungry? Cry. Pain? Cry. A noise upset them? Cry. They express their discomfort in the only way they know how and the parent has to run down a checklist to figure it the fuck out. The baby will keep crying until it's been resolved. That's how babies work. And sometimes, you just can't figure it out for a minute. Every single whiny motherfucker on that sub, and every other person on this planet, has been the annoying crying baby. Maybe understand this is karma for being that way yourself instead of attacking them for it. No one likes crying babies. Our brains are literally hardwired to hate the sound so that we GO FUCKING FIX IT. Why is it that childfree thinks they get to whinge about a crying baby ruining their XYZ? It ruined everyone's XYZ for the time the baby was crying. Everyone else just builds a bridge and gets over it. Because that's life.
Sterilization is hard to get because of the "biological clock". It's a problem. But the rest? Oh this is gonna be fun.
No doctor would stop life saving treatment because "well what if they want children". That's grounds for a malpractice suit. Life > Possibility of Future Child. If someone dies because the doctor refused to give life saving treatments? Even without the malpractice suit, they're likely looking at a medical review and will likely lose their fucking job. Rightfully so, since they're so wackadoodle they refused to save a life for a hypothetical future life.
If your colleague comes to YOUR desk to change his son's diaper, tell him to fuck off. If he gets indignant, tell him it's unhygienic and he's putting you at risk of a serious illness because he can't be bothered to go somewhere else. Get management involved. Get HR involved. Having an actual reason besides "ew gross" if they're gonna pushback, especially one as fun as "endangering employee health" will get them on course to actually do something. The people who do that shit are rare though. Most parents understand that diapers are gross, they don't want to deal with it, and who would want to? and take the baby somewhere appropriate to change them. This is finding a singular problem and then painting with a wide brush. This is how children do things. "Oh I get it, people like that act like this". They actually cannot comprehend nuance though, so when they do it, it's cute and a teachable moment. When you do it, it's just sad. One asshole doesn't define an entire group of people. Hopefully you figure that out before someone from another race is an asshole to you.
A company or person does not have to sell a specific product. They have the right to choose that. You also have the right to take your business elsewhere. Like Amazon. If you live in a place that only has one pharmacy, there's solutions. "But I can't wait X days for shipping" means you order in advance. Have a stock of it so that you're not worried. Be prepared. I'm a dude, I have some plan B laying around just in case.
There is one valid complaint there. One. The rest are imagined or easily solved. And they don't constitute the majority of posts from r/childfree. Most are complaining about children existing and not wanting to deal with it, and in those cases, sorry. If you don't want to deal with it, I get it, but that's not realistic in the slightest.
There's also Plan B
Or you can plan ahead and mail order some of this so it's sitting and waiting for you in an oops moment. This is NOT prescription medication. It's over the counter medicine that you need to ask for from the pharmacist, similar to nicotine patches and Sudafed.
It's $38.50 on Amazon.
You can get both from amazon:
And actually, I couldn't even find beer on US Amazon. So finding abortion pills is actually easier.
