Safe.: plan B is a very safe medication, so you should be ok. I cannot necessarily comment about your pregnancy risk because it is hard to predict. However, if you are finding that you are having as much unprotected sex that you need to take to morning after pills, you should consider a more long acting form of birth control. See your doctor for more information. ...Read more

Success rate of taking Plan B within 41 hours after condom broke?

High: Pregnancy rate is ~10% if taken within 72 hours. There may be irregular bleeding for up to 2 months after taking. The pattern doesn't mean anything about whether the medication worked or not. So run a home urine pregnancy test 14 days after the accident using first urine of the morning. If it's negative, you're not pregnant. Consider a more reliable form of contraception for the future. ...Read more

What are the chances of preg. If I was ovulating and my bf went inside of me for about a min without protection I took plan b within 24 hours?

Pregnancy unlikely: Plan B (or other emergency contraceptive pills) can alter the menstrual bleeding 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. ...Read more

I had 2 incidents of unprotected sex and took one Plan B within 44 hours of my 1st slip and only 2 hours after the 2nd slip. Will one Plan B work?

If u took the Plan B: Correctly, it is supposed to work if u take it within 72 hrs of the unprotected act, but 2 slip ups in one month is 2 too many and defintely 1 too many! Get on some reliable birth control, if u do not get your period at the right time then check a blood preg test. ...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
