Plan B: Anyone having intercourse without birth control or condoms may get pregnant. If intercourse was within 72 hours you consider taking plan b. Ella (ulipristal acetate) is another brand that can be used up to 5 days after unprotected intercourse. Plan b is a high dose of birth control to disrupt ovulation. It decreases the risk by about 70%. You had sex during a lots risk time as well. Check pregnancy test in 2 weeks.
