Plan B: You will not have to retake the plan B as the medication probably hadn't even entered your system by the time you were having your second episode of unprotected intercourse. That being said, it would appear that your are not quite using the medication in the spirit it was intended. It's called Plan B because Plan A should be some form of more reliable birth control.
