Chances of getting pregnant after taking the plan b pill on the last day of your period?  How accurate are pregnancy tests 3 weeks after taking plan b

Pregnancy unlikely: Taking Plan B or other emergency contraception pills can alter the timing or the quality of the current menstrual cycle and the upcoming cycle. One should check a urine pregnancy test 3 weeks after taking Plan B, because emergency contraceptive pills work most of the time but not all of the time. Tests are very accurate 3 weeks after sex. ...Read more

Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date.

Am i able to get pregnant after taking a Plan B pill for on the 4th day? After my period stopped

Not sure of timing: I'm not clear form your question what the timing of the Plan B was with regard to intercourse. This is where timing is important, not related to your menstrual timing. Ideally, Plan B is taken within 48 hours of sex, but can be done up to 72 hours with decreasing results. Even taken properly and in the correct time frame, it is not 100% effective .If concern about pregnancy, take a pregnancy test. ...Read more

She recently had unprotected sex. She DOESN'T want to get pregnant. Any tips on avoiding getting pregnant? How to know? Did NOT take Plan B pill.

Sure, with willpower: It's great that a teen does not want to get pregnant. Because the whole point of sex (in nature) is to make babies, the way to not get pregnant is to not have sex. So, she must use her brain and willpower, to promise herself that she won't have sex again until... probably after the wedding. For yesterday's problem, she must tell her doctor how many days after sex it is, so her Dr. can advise her. ...Read more

Likely hood of getting pregnant from precum if i was ovulating and took the Plan B pill less than 24 hours later?

Likely hood of getting pregnant from precum if i was ovulating and took the Plan B pill less than 24 hours later?

Very low (not zero): While the chances of getting pregnant in that setting is low, it is not zero. Neither the "precum" or the Plan B is 100% effective, as there can still be sperm and the Plan B doesn't always work. Other forms of birth control will be safer if you are having sex frequently. Of course, Plan B won't protect against disease, so using condoms even if you are on something else makes sense (to me). ...Read more

Little chance: In such circumstances, there is little chance of pregnancy. However, one must do a urine pregnancy test 3 weeks later to verify there is no pregnancy. Period bleeding can be altered for this cycle and for the upcoming cycle, due to the Plan B. Be sure not to have sex again until a reliable method of birth control is being used. ...Read more

What is your chance of getting pregnant while taking birth control for a year then taking the Plan B pill?

Not likely: If you are on the pill for a year every day faithfully, the Plan B is not necessary and a little risky due to the increased dose of the hormones. I don't think there is a role for Plan B if you are taking bcp regularly. One or the other, would be my advice. ...Read more

What's the probability of a girl getting pregnant 5 days after her period and taking the Plan B one step pill 22 hours after sex.

Should be low: The Plan B within 22 hours of intercourse is 90% effective. When you say 5 days after period, do you mean after the start or end of period. If 5 days after start, unlikely you were near ovulation. If 5 days after end of period, and length is 5-7 days, then you could have been getting pretty close to ovulation again, increasing the risk. Encourage you to see doc regarding ongoing birth control! ...Read more
