Had sex yesterday, took plan b. Boyfriend came inside me today. Do I have to take another plan b? How long will it work? Thank you

Take another: The first Plan B will probably cover you but it doesn't hurt to take another. And please, get on a good continuous birth control method. You have many options. Your doctor or planned parenthood can help you with this. Getting pregnant when you don't want to has very serious consequences.

Preventing ovulation: The medication works by inhibitting ovulation. Thus, no egg, no pregnancy! the half-life of the medication varies greatly ranging from 11 to 45 hours and so it is difficult to say for sure. Based on this, it stays in the body for about 2.5 days to just over 1 wk. If you still have question, post it here or consult your doc. Good luck.
