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

Normal: Your body is reacting to all those hormones. I suggest that you use condoms in addition to the birth control pills, or practice abstinence. You are at risk of more than pregnancy. Your period will be irregular for a little while. If you're worried, you can do a pregnancy test. Good luck. ...Read more
