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

Pull-out=bad method: Unfortunately, your question is cut off at the end. It is very important, however, to address the ineffectiveness of the"pull-out"method, which involves stopping sex before ejaculation occurs. In addition to the possibility of withdrawing too late, sperm can be found in the lubricating fluid preceding ejaculation. The pull-out method is not birth control.Unless pregnancy is desired, condoms are needed. ...Read more

I had unprotected sex a day before ovulation, and took the pills on the day of ovulation, is there a chance to get pregnant.

I had unprotected sex a day before ovulation, and took the pills on the day of ovulation, is there a chance to get pregnant.

Yes: If you miss your period by 4-5 days, do a home pregnancy test. If the result is negative repeat the test 4-5 days later unless you get a period by then. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully.
If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.
Practice safe sex.
Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

I'm worried I may be pregnant but its to soon to tell. My next cycle isn't until the 28th. I had unprotected sex 1 day before ovulation & he pulled out.

I'm worried I may be pregnant but its to soon to tell. My next cycle isn't until the 28th. I had unprotected sex 1 day before ovulation & he pulled out.

Plan B: Use over the counter Plan B if intercourse was within 72 hours to decrease the risk of unplanned pregnancy. Having unprotected sex at the time of ovulation is certainly a high risk time to get pregnant. Consider starting control to avoid these scares. You can get a prescription via Healthtap by doing a virtual visit with a doctor in your state. ...Read more

Me & my fiañce had unprotected sex the day before ovulation then unprotected sex the next day on ovulation day. Chances of getting pregnant are?

Me & my fiañce had unprotected sex the day before ovulation then unprotected sex the next day on ovulation day. Chances of getting pregnant are?

Depends on testing: If your fiance has normal sperm and your fallopian tubes are open, and there are no other issues, then at your age the chance of pregnancy is quite high... Perhaps 35-40%. But if there are other issues such as those mentioned, the rates could be very low. Best to see a fertility specialist if you have tried like that for > 6 months. ...Read more

I had unprotected sex one day before ovulation, but only a drop of semen went in. What are the chances of me becoming pregnant. I'm 23 years old?

1/3-1/4.: Unfortunately, you highlight the reason why natural methods of contraception don't work: at your age the chance of conception is as high as 25-30% each cycle. Take Folic Acid 1-5 mg daily and best of luck! Check urine pregnancy test! ...Read more

Missed 2 bcps & had unprotected sex one day before ovulation, can I be pregnant?

Missed 2 bcps & had unprotected sex one day before ovulation, can I be pregnant?

Maybe: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a withdrawal period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal withdrawal period, then she is not pregnant. ...Read more

Can you get pregnant during breakthrough bleeding in you have unprotected sex one day before ovulation?

Can you get pregnant during breakthrough bleeding in you have unprotected sex one day before ovulation?

Very rarely: For women taking birth control pills (OCP's) properly and consistently, the chance of pregnancy is reported to be 0.3% per year, or 1 pregnancy in 333 women each year. A woman is protected all days of the month, regardless of breakthrough bleeding, regardless of ovulation. (The actual pregnancy rate in the "real world" is reported to be at least 3% on OCP's, or 1 pregnancy in 33 women each year.) ...Read more

I've had unprotected sex 1 day before ovulation now I've been sleeping in later then usually an had discomfort sleeping can I be pregnant?

Hard to guess: Such symptoms also happen in non-pregnant people. A home pregnancy test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have been) or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant. ...Read more

If I had unprotected sex the day before ovulation, using the pull out method and taking Plan B 70 hours later, what's my risk of getting pregnant?

72 hours: Plan B works better the soon wit is taken. It is 95% effective if taken within the first 24 hours. That falls to 85-87% by 72 hours. It will disrupt your menstrual period. It would be advisable to check a pregnancy test at 3 weeks after the intercourse just to be sure and get started on a more reliable method of contraception. Good luck. ...Read more

I had Unprotected sex the day before ovulation and once four days prior which was in my fertile window what are my chances of being pregnant?

Pregnancy: We can't figure your chances, we are not tellers of the future unfortunately. You have had intercourse at the correct time. You now need to wait and see if you miss a period and then do a pregnancy test. The best time is first morning urine about 5-7 after you have missed. Best of luck. ...Read more

Had unprotected sex one day before ovulation. Period isn't due for another 12 days but I've been extremely tired and cramping. Could I be pregnant?

Health class: First even a boy teenager can tell you that having sex when you are most fertile causes pregnancy. You don't need a doctor to confirm this. But, your body cannot know it is pregnant until the baby is about fourteen days old. Any symptoms before this are not pregnancy symptoms. ...Read more

Unprotected sex 5 day before ovulation. Now I'm 5 days from period. Having white discharge and cramps am I pregnant or is my period coming?

Unprotected sex: Unclear. I suggest waiting, but sperm usually cannot survive in the female tract for 5 days. Next time use contraception. You should have considered using the morning after pill which you can purchase OTC. ...Read more

Is egg white discharge a sign of pregnancy? Had (unprotected)sex a day before ovulation only pre-cummed (sorry tmi). 3 weeks ago every week we had sex?

Cervical musous: Classically, egg white mucous is more a sign of fertility than pregnancy but at best the phase of the cervical mucous is not the way to predict pregnancy. If you miss your period, have a pregnancy test done. It will be far more reliable. ...Read more

My boyfriend and I had unprotected sex one day before my ovulation date. Six days later I am having cramps/back pains. I assume its too early to tell.

Pregnancy: There is always a chance of pregnancy with unprotected sex. Your symptoms may more likely be premenstrual, so your period may come in the next 2-5 days. I still recommend that you take a pregnancy test. In the future, always use birth control if you want to avoid pregnancy. ...Read more

Please Clarify: I have no idea what "do I finish ovulating' means. One cannot control the process of the ovary releasing an egg for impregnation.

One is most likely to get pregnant from unprotected sexual intercourse on any of the five days prior to ovulation.

I had unprotected sex the day before my ovulation day and the day of my ovulation day and two days after is there a good chance I could be pregnant?

Hard to guess: For a population of normal healthy women, the chances of getting pregnant when trying to get pregnant is about 20-25% for the month. However, it is not possible to guess an individual woman's chance of getting pregnant (nature just doesn't work that way). Some of it is timing; some of it is luck. ...Read more
