I ovulated yesterday and had unprotected sex, didn't take any pills until the next day. The next day we had unprotected sex again and then I took plan b after. Would it still work?

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

Will the Plan B one step pill still work for me? I have this app on my computer that tells me the day I am supposed to ovulate. I had unprotected sex on that day. I took Plan B within 12 hrs of it. I was just wondering if the fact I ovulated, or was suppo

Try: Try not to worry. The fact that you took Plan B so soon after intercourse, regardless of ovulation means the greater the chance that it will work in preventing pregnancy. Some people experience a period early after taking plan b, others do not. If you don't get your period on the 20th, then you can take an early prediction pregnacy test.
Good luck! ...Read more

Had unprotected sex. Boyfriend says he didn't cum or precum. I'm ovulating. If I take Plan B pill will it still be effective?

Yes: Oh my! This is like the old joke about lawyers comparable to your boyfriend's statement about what "didn't happen" How can you tell a lawyer is lying? When there lips are moving. Pre-cum emits without the knowledge of your boyfriend and can get you pregnant as it contains sperm. Take Plan B now! ...Read more

How effective is plan b pill if you had unprotected sex during ovulation?

Yes: Plan B decreases the risk of pregnancy by about 70% when used within 72 hours of unprotected intercourse. Pregnancy is still possible. If you had unprotected sex again then you need to use Plan B again. Please consider starting a more reliable form of long term birth control. IUDs and Nexplanon are the easiest, most effective option with the least side effects. ...Read more

Will plan b work me and my girlfriend had unprotected sex and I think a drop got in it happen on a Friday and she took the pill Sunday and was also ovulating?

Will plan b work me and my girlfriend had unprotected sex and I think a drop got in it happen on a Friday and she took the pill Sunday and was also ovulating?

Late: Plan B may work but at best it is only 95% effective and that is if it is taken within the first 24 hr. After unprotected sex. The effectiveness falls the longer after sex it is taken. After the fact, taking it as soon as possible is the only option. Now, however, is the time for her to start a more reliable method of contraception if she isn't pregnant and use condoms to decrease the risk of STDs ...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?

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

Should I take the plan B pill if just worried about Precum? Had unprotected sex the week of ovulation but on cryselle bc

Prevent pregnancy: If you were already taking birth control pills properly for more than 14 days, no need to take Plan B although you can if you want to. A better "double up" protection in the future is to add condoms to the birth control pills. This combination provides excellent pregnancy prevention and cuts down on the transmission of STIs. ...Read more

Hello, I'm really hoping that someone can ease my mind. I had unprotected sex on July 17th, which was a few days before my ovulation and although he didn't finish in me I was concerned about pre-ejaculate. I took a Plan B pill 12 hours later and I was free

Relax, you're ok: Plan B is reportedly 95% effective if taken within the first 24 hours after unprotected sex. Exceptions would be if your body weight is elevated over 165#, as it becomes slightly less effective. If you are pregnant, a home pregnancy test is usually reliable about the time of your missed period, and definitely a week after. Insist on condoms in the future to avoid risk of both pg and infection. ...Read more

If I am in the ovulation stage of the month and I had unprotected sex, can Plan B still be effective?

If I am in the ovulation stage of the month and I had unprotected sex, can Plan B still be effective?

Yep: Some reports say up to 5 days after intercourse but yes, go get some if you ovulated and had sex. That is the mid portion of the cycle and when the egg is released. Egg being released and sperm in uterus from sex equals baby, unplanned. Unplanned pregnancy is one of the biggest correaltions to lifetime poverty; just sayin, go get some medicine. ...Read more

I'm ovulating. Will Plan B still work for me? I took it about an hour after the unprotected sex ocurred.

Hopefully...: Ovulation time, of course, is 'prime time' for getting pregnant! Plan B will hopefully work, but get a pregnancy test if you do not get a normal period when expected. And make an appointment with your doctor or planned parenthood to find some reliable birth control so you don't have to worry. Good luck. Lgromko, md. ...Read more

Me and my boyfriend had unprotected sex while I was ovulating.. And another two days after will Plan B still work?

Me and my boyfriend had unprotected sex while I was ovulating.. And another two days after will Plan B still work?

See below: Levonorgestrel (Plan B) is not 100% effective in preventing pregnancy. If taken within 72 hours it will reduce the chance of pregnancy by 50%. It is somewhat less effective after 72 hours. You can take a repeat dose at day 5 although not approved for same. The copper IUD is the most effective emergency contraceptive. ...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

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

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

I had unprotected sex on the 5th of this month which I think is around the time I ovulate but I took plan b on the 7th. My period is still missing. Why?

Plan B: Emergency contraception can delay your period. So can pregnancy. You might want to do a home pregnancy test to make sure you are not pregnant. If not, you can assume your period was delayed by the emergency contraception. Best wishes! ...Read more

I'm 4 weeks postpartum after delivering to a 26 weeks still born and I have no idea if or when I ovulated. I had unprotected sex 2am Tuesday and took plan b Tuesday morning around 11-11:30 how effective do you think it will be?

I'm 4 weeks postpartum after delivering to a 26 weeks still born and I have no idea if or when I ovulated. I had unprotected sex 2am Tuesday and took plan b Tuesday morning around 11-11:30 how effective do you think it will be?

So sorry to hear!: It is so hard to get back to normal after having such a loss. I am guessing that you will be okay here and not get pregnant right away. But you certainly want to talk to your doctor to see if there could be things to do to safeguard your next baby. You may need blood tests, for example, to rule out certain risk factors. Take the time you need to grieve and heal. LGromkoMD ...Read more
