Taking Plan B right away maximizes the chances that pregnancy will not occur. Using birth control pills are a more effective way of preventing unwanted pregnancy. Also, having unprotected sex around ovulation is a good way to become pregnant. That's what couples do who are trying to conceive. Taking responsibility for sexual health is a good sign of maturity.

Low risk, if as described, for pregnancy.
