Precum And Plan B
Will Plan B work during ovulation? Ejaculated inside without condom and took plan b 6 hours after.
Effective: Plan B consists of hormones, which, given early after unprotected intercourse, "mess" with the mechanisms that are needed for successful conception and/or implantation of a fertilized egg. Under ideal circumstances, conception rate is only about 25 % to begin with. The only way to be sure that Plan B was effective is to do a urine pregnancy test the earliest a week after the unprotected IC. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Protected sex and plan b. Recently taken many plan b. Lots of neg pregs tests. Am i pregnant or is Plan B making my period irregular?
Irregular periods: Low risk of pregnancy. Irregular periods/spotting), headache/fatigue/nausea/ abdominal pain are common side effects with plan b. Plan b should not be used as routine contraception, please see your doctor/discuss what birth control would be right for you. Report any lower abdominal pain. Practice safe sex (use condoms) as birth control does not protect from sexually transmitted diseases.Take care. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Could be as the: hormone levels in your body are still high. The odds of you conceiving with such hormonal levels from the Plan B are close to 0. But I would still be careful and not use plan B as a contraceptive. Best if you use alternate more reliable methods such as oral contraceptive, implants or IUDs. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Perhaps not: Plan b causes a spontaneous abortion, by causing the lining of the uterus to shed the implanted and fertilized egg. So the protection for unprotected sex, after the fact is not assured. Please, if pregnancy is not the desired outcome of sexual intercourse, use other forms of contraception. Plan b is not intended to be a form of birth control and should only be reserved for emergency situations. ...Read more
Had sex . Unprotected. He did not ejaculate inside of me. Took plan b within 24 hours. Chances of pregnancy? Also does plan b have side effects?
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 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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: If you took it and shortly thereafter had unprotected sex it would likely work the same way. However, i wouldn't suggest planning unprotected sex. Plan b is not a perfect method of pregnancy prevention. That's why we call it "emergency contraception" and not just in case contraception. ...Read more

1 month after abortion had sex condom broke used plan b within 12 hrs. Will the plan b still work effectively?
Does Plan B work if taken on ovulation day ? I had unprotected sex (not ejaculated inside of me) the day before ovulation began and took plan b.
Here are some ...: Nowadays, how to handle the uncertainty of pregnancy has changed through the readily available HPT, which has taken away the anxious second guess with clinical suspicion of morning sickness. So, do HPT soon after missing the regularly expected period and repeat it in 1 wk if the 1st test is (-) & still in doubt. Besides, note: no known contraceptive measures have ever offered 100% success. ...Read more
Had sex, ejaculated inside my girlfriend. took plan B within 45min Then we had sex again after. I didn't ejaculate inside her does plan b still work?
Yes, but...: Plan-B pill works in most if taking it within 3 days after sex. Nonetheless, still always do HPT in 7-10 days after missing period & repeat it in another 7-10 days if the first HPT is (-) & still in doubt. Besides, it is nice to know that ovulation occurs 2 wks before period regardless of personal menstrual cycle. ...Read more
Sex with condom didn't ejaculate but nervous about precum. took Plan B & had notmal 1st cycle but I'm 12 days late on my second one. Normal? Or not
On the 16th of may my bf put his penis inside of me for 5 sec but i felt precum, took Plan B 24hrs later than another one 48hrs, can I still be prgnant?
Unlikely, but...: Plan b is very effective at preventing pregnancy if taken correctly. It sounds like you did this and then some. There was no benefit from taking that second dose. However, Plan B is not meant to be contraception. You have now seen in the heat of the moment the risk of pregnancy is huge, as are risks for std's. If you and bf are not ready to be mom and dad, see doc about appropriate contraception. ...Read more

I had unprotected sex with my bf. I was in 7th day of my period. There was no ejaculation or precum , took plan b one step after 15hrs. ?

Can't state the: statistic for pre-ejaculate. Plan B One-Step is up to 89 % effective when taken within 72 hours (3 days) after unprotected sex. It can reduce chance of pregnancy by up to 95% if used within 24 hours. It continues to reduce the risk of pregnancy up to 120 hours (5 days) after unprotected sex, but is less effective as time passes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I had unprotected sex two days ago,well almost 2 days ago, he didn't cum inside,but Precum ,I just took plan b,what r the chances of being prego?
Low but possible: Precum has enough sperm in each drop to get you pregnant, not as much as the main load but enough.Plan B works in most cases when used as instructed, but sometimes doesn't.If this is your pattern for sex, it's just a matter of time until you get pregnant.Either have him not start until a condom is placed or find another form of BC.Using both would help reduce STD risk. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I took plan b a Saturday because the condom broke, he pulled out right away before he came but there prob was precum, anyways I took plan b 45 mins after and this happened on a Saturday and it's now Friday so it's been a week and I have really bad cramps
What is: your question?? Sounds like Plan B is working since it's "designed" to give you an aborted pregnancy if that is what happened and it will affect your cycle in any case! If you miss a period THAT's what you would be "concerned about! Hope this helps! Dr Z (BTW...suggest a better plan for Birth Control!) ...Read more

How high are your chances of getting pregnant from precum but you took Plan B 65 hours afterwards? And you were on cycle day 9 or 10 when sex occurred
Almost zero: The chances of getting pregnant from sex on cycle days 9-10 (counting day 1 as the first day of period bleeding) are usually low if one has 28-30 day cycles. The chances of getting pregnant from precum is low, and the chances of Plan B not working at 65 hours is very low. Combining all 3 events, there is almost no chance of pregnancy from this one sexual event. Always keep some condoms nearby. ...Read more
