What’s the Deal With The Morning After Pill?


My little 21-year-old cousin just wrote and told me she hooked up with a guy on Tinder. And that they didn’t use a condom. “What do I do now?” she asked, panicking. Here’s what I told her…

So you’ve been stupid: first you hooked up with a jerk on Tinder within two hours who never called you back, and second, you hooked up with a jerk on Tinder who didn’t use a condom–and you didn’t insist he did! So now what do you do? Keep calm and buy the morning after pill.

Available over the counter since 2013, the Plan B pills will keep those pesky hook-up sperm from entering your temple of love. The pill is most effective when used 24-48 hours after doing the deed, but is still effective up to five days afterwards, with diminished effectiveness each day. The biggest side-effect is nausea, and the pill is a bit pricey; $49 at Walgreens and Target, but a small price to pay for not having to contact your new baby daddy, who is too busy hooking up with other girls to call you back.
