Decreases risk: Taking Plan B lowers the risk of unplanned pregnancy. It sounds like you should consider starting long term birth control to help prevent these scares. There are many options. You can schedule a virtual visit on healthtap today and discuss the options and get a prescription from a doctor in your state. ...Read more

Had my period on 4/11 and had unprotected sex on 4/19 during high fertility/ovulation. Took plan B 54 hours later. Will it work?
I'm taking birth control, sometimes an hour later than usual, still works or should I take plan b if I had unprotected sex?
You should be okay: Varying the time of birth control dose by an hour or so daily is not significant enough to alter its effectiveness, as long as you continue to take your daily dose. Missing a full day or two does reduce its effectiveness as well as some medications. With unprotected sex, you are still at risk for sexually transmitted infection so I do recommend both. ...Read more

Unprotected sex during ovulation 8-7.Took plan b within 1hr. Took ovulation predictor 6 days later 8-13. it says im at peak. Will planB still work?
Your question is...: ...confusing b/c you're suggesting that u might be ovulating x2 this cycle. Did u base your 8/7 ovulation on the calendar and the 8/13 on the OPK? If your periods are irregular, u should go by the OPK results. If u took Plan B early in your cycle, u could still ovulate 6 days later. Don't count on Plan B from 8/7 to prevent ovulation today! ...Read more
If my bf and I have unprotected sex on purpose and I take the Plan B pill after will it still work completely?
I started birth control this month and had unprotected sex. I decided to take Plan B. Will Plan B make my birth control not work?
I don't normally take birth control. But I had unprotected sex and was told if I take 3 birth control pills it works like plan b? Is this true? How?
Not exactly: Some pills are designed to be emergency contraception pills (those work best). Regular birth control pills have various hormones in them, and SOME types of those pills can be taken to try to prevent a pregnancy. One can also get an IUD, which works well as emergency contraception (ask one's Ob-Gyn doctor). A reference table can be found at: http://ec. Princeton. Edu/questions/dose. Html#dose ...Read more
Took 2 Plan B in one week after unprotected sex during and after ovulation? Does it still work?? And cramping on and off 5 days before expected per.
Yes: 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
Is it needed to take a Plan B pill after pre ejaculation when pulling out during unprotected sex and is it safe to take the pill during my period?
Had unprotected sex while on birth control (pills), during off week, just started period, he ejaculated inside me, should I take plan b? Been on bc 1yr
Essentially no risk: If you were taking your bcp as prescribed and this was your off week, during which you had your period, you will have very, very low risk of getting pregnant. Resume taking your bcp as prescribed for the start of your 28 day cycle. Meanwhile you may want to refresh your education a bit about other hazards of unprotected sex, such as sexually transmitted diseases. ...Read more

I had unprotected sex on ovulation day with withdrawal. Took plan b after 12 hours. Will plan b still work?
Try Ulipristal/Ella: Unfortunately the primary mechanism of Plan B is the prevention of ovulation, but if the cat's already out of the bag, meaning you've already ovulated, then there might not be very much that Plan B can do. You may however call your doctor and ask for a script for Ulipristal or EllaOne which is more effective than Plan B and safe for the prevention of pregnancy at up to 120 hours. Good luck! ...Read more
I had unprotected sex, took the Plan B but had sex the next day. Should I take another plan B or since it did not pass 24 hours, the first one will do?
I had unprotected sex on the 16th day of my cycle. I was afraid of the pre semen. I took Plan B after 3 hours. Will it work? I have a 26 days cycle.
It should work: Plan B works most of the time, but not all of the time. One should do a home urine pregnancy test 3 weeks after Plan B. Also, use reliable forms of birth control so that Plan B will rarely be needed (hopefully never) in the future. If cycles are a very-regular 26 days, ovulation is probably on day 12, which means by day 16 the egg is dead (but life can surprise you sometimes). ...Read more
I had unprotected sex a day before ovulation. Took Plan B 23 hours afterwards. I am overweight, could that have effected the pills ability to work?
Perhaps: There is some evidence that emergency contraception (EC) progestin-only pills are less effective if your BMI is >30. Ella/ulipristal acetate may be more effective than the Plan B/progestin only. Having a copper IUD inserted as EC is the most effective, 99%, equally so among all women regardless of weight. Reliable non-emergency contraception is your goal. Best wishes:) ...Read more
I had unprotected sex 2 weeks ago, I was on my 3rd day of starting birth control. I did take Plan B within 3 hours of having sex. My chances?
Take a test: Don’t guess. Take a test. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. ...Read more
I had unprotected sex the day my period was ending I am on a combination birthcontrol however I was scared because I did not take it at my time so I took plan b 2 hours after 9 days later I began bleeding as if I was on my period. It was much more than I
Learn more...: Plan B can alter the menstrual period 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. Learn more about your birth control pill from your doctor. With a COMBINATION pill, one can stray from her "pill taking time" several hours and be fine. ...Read more
Does Plan B work if taken on ovulation day? I had unprotected sex (not ejaculated inside of me) the day before ovulation began and took plan b.
Here are some. ..: Nowadays, how to handle the uncertainty of pregnancy has changed through the readily available HPT, which has taken away the anxious second guess with clinical suspicion of morning sickness. So, do HPT soon after missing the regularly expected period and repeat it in 1 wk if the 1st test is (-) & still in doubt. Besides, note: no known contraceptive measures have ever offered 100% success. ...Read more
