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.

Your description of the scenario does not make sense but you took plan B 5 days before the expected day of ovulation so I think you are safe.
