A spectacular electrical storms light up the Puyehue-Cordón Caulle range after the massive 8.8-magnitude Puyehue volcano erupted in Chile which had laid dormant for over half a century. The eruption belched an ash cloud more than six miles high over the Andes and cause a flurry of earth quakes. Photos by: Francisco Negroni|Flickr| 500px
The European manufacturer of a pill identical to Plan B says its product won’t work for women who weigh more than 176 pounds. Will American pharma companies warn women of weight limits?
So, this is probably worth knowing about, especially if you weren’t aware that being over 160lb already makes most hormonal birth control pills (and some other medications at standard doses) less effective.
Jesus you guys, I had no idea.
Shit, this is news to me as well.
This is definitely news to me. IDK how I feel about sweeping statements like “Plan B is ineffective for all women over 176lbs”, since I have seen the contrary more than once, but a warning that it may be less effective should absolutely be public knowledge.
Also, don’t read the comments. They’re rude but also INCREDIBLY stupid. I’m pretty sure most of those trolls have never seen a human person in their lives.
