If I am two weeks into birth control and have had unprotected sex, should I take the morning after pill? What would it do for me?

Wouldn't hurt: It depends when you started your birth control pills. If you started birth control for the 1st time ever 2 weeks ago and you started the 3-5th day of your period, then you probably don't need to use the morning after.

If you have been on the pill for many cycles, then definitely no need

otherwise, it wouldn't hurt to take the morning after pill. Actually it never hurts. It might just be overkill. ...Read more

I am on the pill, but got my period a week early and then had sex during the designated 'period' week. Should I take the morning after pill?

I am on the pill, but got my period a week early and then had sex during the designated 'period' week. Should I take the morning after pill?

Probably not...: The answer is that, if you are taking the pill daily, you are still highly unlikely to get pregnant, even if bleeding is more irregular.
The morning after pill is probably not needed and not tested in birth control pill users, so not sure it would work anyways.
Bottom line... You are likely safe. ...Read more

Didn't take pill yesterday, had sex last night then took 1 at about 12 tday. I'm meant to get period in 2 days. Should I take morning after pill?

Didn't take pill yesterday, had sex last night then took 1 at about 12 tday. I'm meant to get period in 2 days. Should I take morning after pill?

Likely no: If I understood your question correctly, you're stating that you're due for your period in two days. If that's the case then I don't think you need to take plan b. There's never any harm in taking plan b, but commonly we say you only need to take Plan B if you missed two pills in a row. Hope that helps you. ...Read more

Had unprotected sex 1 day before my period. Should I worry? Should I take morning after pill? And what happen if I take pill

Not if period comes: If a period comes the next day or two, and looks and feels like a regular normal period, then pregnancy did not occur. The morning-after pill works if taken 0-5 days after sex, so a woman in such a situation can consider taking the pill if no regular normal period begins during the next day or two. ...Read more

Last day of period, 3 days on bc - started within 5 days of period, condom broke, tiny bit of precum - should I take morning after pill?

Chance of pregnancy: Based on what you've said I can tell you with 100% certainty that it makes no difference when your period was, when you took bc and even (get this one) if the condom were 1000% intact as he withdrew ; not one single solitary drop of anything spilled into the vagina? Still, when you have sexual relations with a fertile man there is always, always, always a chance for pregnancy. ...Read more
