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?

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?

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?

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
