 1  Emergency contraception Horrific - Over the course of four months, I gained 27 pounds. This weight was largely all in my hips and thighs, and was cottage-cheese-like cellulite. I had not changed my activity level or eating habits whatsoever (I eat a spartan, gluten-free diet). It's a year later and I still have not been able to take off the weight. Additionally, I have a high SHBG level. It remains high at 250! This is one year - ONE YEAR - after I took the Plan B pill. Don't let anyone tell you this stuff leaves your system quickly. It lingers forever. F 41 1 times

LEVONORGESTREL  (LEVONORGESTREL):  This product is a small, flexible device that is placed in the womb (uterus) to prevent pregnancy. It is used by women who want to use a reversible birth control method that works for a long time (up to 3 years). The device slowly releases a hormone (levonorgestrel) that is similar to a hormone that women normally make. This device helps prevent pregnancy by making cervical fluid thicker, interfering with sperm movement, and reducing sperm survival to prevent sperm from reaching an egg (fertilization). It also changes the lining of the uterus (womb) to prevent attachment of a fertilized egg. If a fertilized egg does not attach to the uterus, it passes out of the body. This device may also stop the release of an egg from your ovary (ovulation), but this is not the way it works in most women. Using this product does not protect you or your partner against sexually transmitted diseases (such as HIV, gonorrhea, chlamydia).   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
