Am I Missing Something Here?

Young woman and male friend approach the counter first thing on a Saturday morning. Young woman states she is using a birth control pill --- should she also use Plan B? She proceeds to answer "no" to the following questions from me:

Did you miss some doses?
Are you having irregular periods, spotting?
Are you on some other medications that could interfere with your birth control?
Is it your first cycle of birth control?

I'm stumped. I tell her that OC's are very effective if used correctly. She seems satisfied and leaves. I guess I'm glad she asked, but I hope she really wasn't going to take Plan B every time she had sex while on the pill. Just covering all the bases, I guess......
