Doctor accused of slipping Plan B in girlfriend’s drinks

A Manhattan woman who found a discarded box of the emergency contraception Plan B in her boyfriend’s trash can thought she’d caught him cheating.

The reality was far worse: He’d slipped the drug into her drink to make sure she couldn’t get pregnant, the woman alleges in a new lawsuit filed in Manhattan Supreme Court.

Neuroradiologist John Nwankwo Ikechi admitted the ruse to his girlfriend Hyosun Kim, according to the woman’s $5 million suit.

Ikechi, 37, and Kim, 36, had been dating for a month when she found the discarded box in May 2016. She wasn’t using any birth control at the time and was shocked when she saw the packaging.

When Kim confronted Ikechi he “confessed that he was aware she would never have voluntarily agreed to take the Plan B pill and told her that this was the only way he could get her to ingest” it, the suit says.

Kim “was horrified that her boyfriend would deceive her in this way,” the suit says. She broke off the relationship, but was so distressed by the betrayal that she “sought medical treatment,” according to court papers.

Ikechi “is a licensed medical doctor in the state of New York making his conduct all the more egregious, as any doctor…knows…that an individual cannot be forced to ingest medication without his or her consent.”

The doctor’s “conduct was so extreme and outrageous and exceeded the bounds of human decency,” the suit says.

Ikechi was a fellow at New York University in 2011 and is now an “on-call neuroradiologist” according to his LinkedIn profile.

Plan B, which is now an over-the-counter medication, was a prescription drug at the time. It is usually taken on an emergency basis to prevent accidental pregnancy within 72 hours of unprotected sex.

Ikechi did not immediately respond to a message seeking comment.
