Can you still get pregnant when you take a Plan B pill after you already ovulated?

Unlikely: If I understand your question correctly. ... You ovulated, you took Plan B and you want to know how effective Plan B is at preventing pregnancy.

The Progesterone can have some inhibitory effects on fertilization, but they are minimal. ...Read more

Can you still get pregnant if you get your normal monthly period a few hours after unprotected sex? I also took Plan B 60 hours after this occurred.

Can I still get pregnant after being on birth control, using a condom and used plan b. The condom came off during sex and it was broken just a little bit

It: It sounds like you have taken all of the necessary precautions to prevent pregnancy.
If you have taken your birth control pill each day, as directed, then the birth control pill is over 98% effective against pregnancy. Also, if you took Plan B within 72 hours of unprotected sex, as directed, then this too is over 98% effective.
Your chances of being pregnant (if you have taken all as directed) are very low.

If you miss your period, take a pregnancy test. The pregnancy hormone can be detected in urine 14 days after conception. ...Read more

Can someone still get pregnant, even after using plan b?

Can someone still get pregnant, even after using plan b?

Yup.: Plan b is very effective, but it is still possible to get pregnant even though you took it properly and within the proper guidelines. For that matter, you can get pregnant while taking the pill - perfectly, with an iud, or even after a vasectomy or tubal ligation. Granted, the latter scenarios are unlikely - but I've seen them all! Do the best you can. Good luck. Lgromkomd. ...Read more

If I pulled out way before I could finish, could she still get pregnant? Do I need to get her a Plan B pill anyway?

Yes: There is no pull out method. That system is nicknamed sexual roulette. All secretions of the excited male penis contain enough sperm to establish pregnancy. Either cover up or keep it in your pants unless you want to be a daddy. ...Read more

I took plan b & a few hours later had unprotected sex with my bf. Could I get pregnant hours after taking the plan b or will it still be in my system?

Maybe: It takes time for the sperm to swim to the egg and fertilize the same. The Plan B may still be in your bloodstream but it tends to inhibit implantation not ovulation. Obtaining contraception with use with your boyfriend going forward if not pregnant, seems more mature to avoid pregnancy. ...Read more

I have a, question my ovulation day was the 17 yesterday. My boyfriend came inside but on patch and took Plan B one step. Can I still get pregnant?

Not likely: If you are already on the birth control patch then there is no reason to be taking plan b. It is fine that you did it just isn't needed. The point of using the patch is to provide effective contraception. Taking more birth control does not make it work better. ...Read more

I took the Plan B pill 4 days after pull out method just to lower my chances of pregnancy but could I still get pregnant even if she cleaned the precu?

I took the Plan B pill 4 days after pull out method just to lower my chances of pregnancy but could I still get pregnant even if she cleaned the precu?

"Pull out" method: The "pull out" method is unreliable. It would be nearly impossible to clean all traces of pre-cum sperm that might be in your vagina. Plan b is most effective in the first 24 hours. 4 days later is much less effective. Please talk with your doctor about more reliable birth control methods. ...Read more

I had unprotected sex 3 nights ago and and took plan B pill last night then had unprotected sex again last night can I still get pregnant?

I had unprotected sex 3 nights ago and and took plan B pill last night then had unprotected sex again last night can I still get pregnant?

PlanB Effective120hr: No Plan B is effective for 120 hours that is 5 days. But my advise is that if you are going to keep having unprotected sex, use birth control pills or another method. Remember plan b is less effective as time passes and take it as soos as after sex for it to be more efeective. But plan B is effective only 89% if you take within 72 hours, And 95% if taken within 24 hours. ...Read more

If I took a Plan B pill on the first day of my 7 day cycle and had unprotected intercourse on the 8th day, could I still get pregnant??

Yes: Plan B has to be taken after unprotected sex, not before to be effective. Plan B can work in one of three ways depending on where you are in your cycle. It can prevent or delay ovulation, can interfere with the fertilization of the egg or may prevent implantation by altering the lining of the uterus. If you take Plan B One-Step within 24 hours, it is about 95% effective. ...Read more

Took Plan B two days before period was due to start. Still no sign of period. It has been four days since I took the pill. Can I get pregnant?

Typical with Plan B: Plan b essentially disrupts the normal menstrual cycle by blocking or delaying ovulation. That it is how it works and why it is so different than a medical abortion. Irregular bleeding after taking Plan B is not rare. Always check a pregnancy test after using Plan B and see a doctor to start a better form of birth control. ...Read more

In time, probably.: Of course, the sooner plan B is used the better, but it can help even up to 5 days later. HOWEVER, it is not 100% effective. Do a pg test in 3 weeks. Get checked for std's if you have had unprotected sex, unless in a mutually monogamous long-term relationship (& you were both disease free before beginning it). Practice safe sex to avoid both pg and disease going forward. Plan B is no substitute. ...Read more

I just had unprotected sex, he was going to pull out but didn't. I just had a baby a month ago. Can I still get pregnant? Will using plan b work? I'm so scared.

I just had unprotected sex, he was going to pull out but didn't. I just had a baby a month ago. Can I still get pregnant? Will using plan b work? I'm so scared.

Yes and yes: If you just had a baby a month ago and you have been breastfeeding and you have not had your period you are probably not ovulating until your baby is around 6 months however you can use plan b while breastfeeding and women cannot rely on not getting pregnant during this period of time without taking the normal smart precautions. Please contact your OB/GYN asap to discuss. ...Read more

I had sex and the condom broke all the way through. I took plan b, is there any way I could still get pregnant?

Unfortunately, yes.: You did the best you could in trying to prevent pregnancy in this situation - but it is still possible to get pregnant in spite of plan b. Did you know that many people use "double methods? " for example, foam and condoms, birth control pills and condoms, diaphragm and condoms? See your doctor or call planned parenthood if you need more contraceptive care for better peace of mind. Lgromkomd. ...Read more

Was on the pill Diane for 14 had sex with no condom Bf did not cum in me I took plan b 30min later could I still get pregnant? Stoped taking bc pill

Unlikely, but...: Plan B works most of the time but not every time, so that means a person who uses Plan B is not likely to get pregnant from that episode of sex. Of course, one should do a home urine pregnancy test 3 weeks later to confirm non-pregnancy, because Plan B does not work every time. ...Read more

What happens if you take plan b while on your period? Will it stop my period? Is there any chance I could still get pregnant?

It works/Maybe/Maybe: Plan B can alter the menstrual bleeding for the cycle in which Plan B was taken, and sometimes the next cycle too. One should be sure to check a home pregnancy test about 3 weeks after sex, because Plan B works most of the time, but not all the time. ...Read more

I took plan b 2 days before ovulation on june 20th. Had sex today and precum may have comed out. I'm not ovulating. Could I still get pregnant?

YES!!!: First of all, why did you take the plan b? To prevent pregnancy? Plan B is NOT a reliable form of contraception, and even taken after intercourse is not entirely effective. Using a proper method of birth control or abstinence is the ONLY way to prevent pregnancy. You should wait to have intercourse until you are on the right contraception. Please see your doctor ASAP to help get you going! ...Read more
