Please help! do I need plan b? Sperm was inserted in vagina on day 16 of menstrual cycle. It has already been 24 hours! help!

See answer: Day 16 may well be within your fertile window. If want to minimize/eliminate the chance of pregnancy, then "emergency contraception" with "morning-after-pill" or Plan B recommended. The sooner you take (and definitely no longer than 5 days post-intercourse), the greater the effectiveness. ...Read more

Biology is complex: You seem to express an idea that the workings of the female cycle are mechanistic like a mechanical device. Wrong. Let me tell you that all doctors deal with less than a full deck with every patient. Estimations and guesswork are the norm. Mother nature keeps most of her secrets.
