Took plan b about 3 weeks ago, now I want to get pregnant, is it possible?

Absolutely possible: Plan B is a one time deal and meant to head off a pregnancy after unprotected sex. There is nothing to prevent your getting pregnant almost right after. Just don't keep using Plan B - it is not meant to be used as contraception. Please discuss birth control with your pediatrician, family doctor, gynecologist, or family planning clinic. ...Read more

Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

Keep trying: 4 months is too early for a young person like yourself to be considered with fertility problems. Having taken Plan B that often in the past should not affect your fertility today. ...Read more

I took the plan B pill about 3 hours after the condom broke. How effective do you think it will be? I'm 17 and never would have thought this would happen! I cannot get pregnant now as I'm going to graduate and go to college soon. I've never been more afra

Not 100%: No nonsurgical birth control method is 100% effective, except abstinence, but plan B works very well. Unprotected sex, 8 people out of 100 will get pg. With Plan B, properly taken, you're less likely. (0.5.-1.5 people out of 100 get pg after plan b) See http://ec.princeton.edu/pills/plan-b.html See also http://womenshealth.gov/publications/our-publications/fact-sheet/emergency-contraception.html ...Read more

Slept with my ex, he came in me. I took plan b. I bled for 4 days. Then slept with my boyfriend. Now i'm pregnant. Could it be my ex boyfriends baby?

Possible: If you take Plan B within 72 hours after you've had unprotected sex, Plan B one-step can reduce the risk of pregnancy by up to 89%. If you take Plan B one-step within 24 hours, it is about 95% effective. Thus, while effective, it is not perfect and not as effective as regular contraception. More importantly, if pregnant soon after taking plan b, important to seek gyn evaluation to confirm preg. ...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?

Not likely : If you are already on the birth control patch then there is no reason to be taking plan b. It is fine that you did it just isnt needed. The point of using the patch is to provide effective contraception. Taking more birth control does not make it work better. ...Read more
