The morning-after pill is a form of emergency contraception.  Emergency contraception is any type of birth control used after unprotected sex or if contraceptive failure such as, a broken condom to attempt to prevent pregnancy.  The morning-after pill, also known as Plan B, is the most commonly used emergency contraceptive. The morning-after pill is not the same as the abortion pill and should not be used to end a pregnancy.  It is recommended to be taken within 72 hours of sex. 

          BEFORE you decide to take the morning-after pill…it is best to get a pregnancy test to determine whether or not you have a viable pregnancy.  You can only become pregnant on certain days of the month – around the time that you ovulate. If you have a normal cycle ovulation would occur two weeks after the 1st day of your last cycle, so taking the morning-after pill during a time when you cannot become pregnant needlessly exposes you to large doses of hormones and costs you money.                                                              

              And if you are already pregnant from an earlier sexual encounter, taking the morning-after pill is of no value and may cause unpleasant side effects. 

                    A good question to ask is, is it safe?  Like most medicines, it comes with its share of side effects which should last a day or so, but could last up to two weeks.  Plan B side effects can mimic pregnancy symptoms when you aren’t pregnant.  But if you have pregnancy symptoms and suspect you might be pregnant despite getting a period, go ahead and take a pregnancy test.  Other symptoms include: 

  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue
  • Headache
  • Breast tenderness
  • Bleeding between periods or heavier menstrual bleeding
  • Lower abdominal pain or cramps.

If you have taken the morning-after pill and symptoms persist, please seek medical attention.

Relationships... we all have them. Some we can't choose, like our parents, siblings, aunts, uncles or cousins. But
others we have the power to choose. We get to choose who we hang out with. Our friends, our boyfriend or our
girlfriend are our choices. And it's so important to be wise when we make these choices. So, for a moment... think
about your boyfriend. Is he usually…

Kind to you?
Does he respect your feeling and thoughts?
Does he say things that build you up?
Does he listen to you?

Or does he usually…

Try to control you?
Does he lie to you?
Does he put you down in front of others?
Does he pressure you to do things you are uncomfortable doing? Like having sex.

I encourage you to honestly evaluate your relationship. Is it a healthy and well rounded? While there is
no such thing as a perfect relationship and there’s always things to work on, it’s important to have a
good foundation of trust, respect and to have a feeling of stability and security.

Abortion... a Band-aid or a deeper wound?

When you have scratch on your leg and the bleeding won’t stop, what do you do? You go to the medicine cabinet and get a Band-aid to cover and protect the wound and stop the bleeding. When you are cooking and cut your hand with a knife, what do you reach for? A Band-aid, something that will cover your wound and protect it from germs, leading to infection.

                When you have an unplanned pregnancy and your heart is breaking, mind racing, what do you do? You are looking for a way to cover it up, stop the pain, and be “healed”; the phone call for an abortion comes to mind immediately. Many times abortion is seen as a quick fix, a Band-aid, a temporary solution to a bigger problem.

                When I had my abortion, I was looking forward to getting my life back to normal. I wanted to stop my unwanted pregnancy from being on my mind constantly, but my abortion experience wasn’t the quick fix that I had hoped for. I wasn’t prepared for or aware of the “triggers” that I would be experiencing for years afterwards.

                If you are considering an abortion, you have the right to know you may experience flashbacks or memories of your abortion when you see, hear, smell, or feel things that you encountered during the time of your abortion. These can come days, weeks, and years later.

According to “Ramah’s Voice,” the following are eight of the most common triggers of post-abortion pain:

Abortion on your mind?

Abortion on your mind?

Did you just find out that you are pregnant? Two lines on a pregnancy test weren’t what you were hoping for; I understand. Feelings you could be experiencing now are: fear, anxiety, dread, and just being overwhelmed. You may be looking for a fast way out, and abortion comes to your mind… “I just need to get this over with.”

May I just encourage you to slow down a moment? You have time to make an informed decision and get the facts first. Before you rush into a decision, just confirm that you are pregnant with a visit to a physician or a pregnancy resource center. Usually home tests are accurate, but there are many factors to consider, and there can be false positives. Then follow that up that pregnancy confirmation with an ultrasound exam. This will confirm the status of your pregnancy; this information is important. Did you know that…

Looking for the abortion pill?

First question to answer, are you certain you’re pregnant? 1 in 4 pregnancies ends in miscarriage; Care Net PRC of Neosho offers free ultrasounds to confirm what your next steps will be.

Facing an unplanned pregnancy is hard. You may be facing many emotions right now – fear, confusion anxiousness, and more; it can be overwhelming. I understand; I had an unplanned pregnancy at 18 years old. I wanted a quick way out of my situation, so I chose abortion.

Before you decide on abortion, I encourage you to be informed. Get the facts before you rush into a decision.

This is not like taking Tylenol, as many would have you believe. Here are some facts:

  • The abortion pill can only be taken up to 11 weeks of pregnancy.
  • Two pills are required:

                                The first pill cuts off nutrients to the fetus so that it dies.
