‘Teen Mom 2’ star Leah Messer received a huge backlash from the show’s fans recently after admitting that she uses ‘Plan B’ birth control “as needed.”
For those that may not know, ‘Plan B’ is an emergency contraceptive that helps prevent pregnancy if taken within 72 hours of unprotected sex.
In a voiceover on the show Leah talks about getting on birth control because things are getting serious with Jason and that she had been using ‘Plan B.’
‘Teen Mom’ viewers freaked out on Leah on social media for using it too frequently and not for its intended use. So she took to her podcast to set the record straight.
“MTV definitely did the voice-over backward… They actually wanted me to make it sound like I used it as birth control, but I was very aware that you don’t use it as birth control. It’s something that you don’t use like that.
I do not think it is something that should be used frequently, but if something would happen, I would use it. I used it as needed. If I felt like I needed it, then I would use it.”
Leah also cleared up her reasons for breaking up with Jason after this week’s episode showed her daughters clashing with him. She tweeted:
“It was not a healthy relationship. Everyone comes into our lives for a reason. Of course, there needed to be a storyline to why we broke up but my girls had NOTHING to do with it. We were NOT compatible and it went on for longer than it should. It happens.”
