My gf and i had a broken condom accident.  She is 37 and will ovulate in 4 days according to her regular calendar.  Is it a good idea to use plan b?

Use 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 the hormonal patterns to delay or prevent ovulation. Abnormal bleeding after is common. Check preg test in 10 days. ...Read more

Supposed to get get period Wednesday Its Saturday Sexually active 17 No broken condoms Wiped w/the same towel but I dont know if it was the same spot?

Worry? For what?: Are you asking if sperm deposited on some towel could also survive, swim off the towel, onto your dry skin, and then swim into your vagina and cause pregnancy? That is impossible. It is not any risk for pregnancy and is not how a baby is made. ...Read more

Last period 2/19 broken condom 3/7 took pregnancy test today and showed up negative. Safe to presume normal life? Or take another test in a week?

Last period 2/19 broken condom 3/7  took pregnancy test today and showed up negative. Safe to presume normal life? Or take another test in a week?

Negative: You're very close, of course, to getting your next cycle. If you're pregnancy test is negative today and last encounter was 3/7, then likely you're not pregnant, but for 100% certainty, can wait about 5 more days (assuming no period) and take another test. Best of luck. ...Read more

Had a broken condom during sex a day after her last period, she took planb within 2 hours and that week got a heavy period for 5days, can she be preg?

Had a broken condom during sex a day after her last period, she took planb within 2 hours and that week got a heavy period for 5days, can she be preg?

Not likely: It sounds like she did everything right, honestly. Taking Plan B withing 72 hours of unprotected sex is the most effective in preventing a pregnancy, and she took it within 2 hours so she was well within those recommendations. It is not at all uncommon after taking Plan B to get an early period that can be lighter or heavier than normal. I think it's not very likely that she has become pregnant. ...Read more

Probably unrelated: You symptoms are unlikely to be due to the broken condom. It is good that the test for HIV have been negative. To be sure get a HIV nucleic acid test at 6 months after the potential exposure. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more
