Use a condom: The best way to prevent a pregnancy is to use birth control or a condom before having sex. If you have unprotected sex you can take Plan B (the morning-after pill) within 3-5 days of unprotected sex. It is over-the-counter if you are 17 or older but you have to ask the pharmacist for it. A copper IUD can also be inserted up to 5 days later to prevent a pregnancy. ...Read more

What drug?: You did not state what drug you are asking about that you took. I am going to assume that you are referring to emergency contraception.

Emergency contracept: Anyone having intercourse without birth control or condoms may get pregnant. If intercourse was within 72 hours you consider taking plan b. Ella (ulipristal acetate) is another brand that can be used up to 5 days after unprotected intercourse. Plan b is a high dose of birth control to disrupt the hormonal patterns to delay or prevent ovulation. Abnormal bleeding after is common. Check preg test in 10 days. ...Read more
No: It takes between 60 and 90 seconds for the sperm to travel from the vagina through the cervix into the uterus and out of the fallopian tubes to reach your eggs. It takes even less time for the sperm to get into the cervix where they would not be affected by douching. It might help a little, but not much. ...Read more

Partner is not always around. Having sex everyday for about 10days. What kind of pills should b taken to prevent pregnancy?
Birth control pills: There isn't much you can do at this point about your exposure over the past 10 days. You may have already conceived. Emergency Contraception (Ella (ulipristal acetate) or Plan B) is really only helpful within a few days after unprotected sex. In the future, I would recommend getting on birth control pills prior to having sex. Other options include: injections, implants, an IUD or condoms. ...Read more
Had unprotected sex yesterday. My last per was on 1/29. If I take Plan B the next day, is that considered early & will it prevent pregnancy?
Plab B and pregnancy: Morning after pills, such as plan b, have their maximum effect if taken within 72 hours after intercourse. There is moderate effectiveness if taken within 120 hours after intercourse. Your last period being 3 days ago, indicates a low risk for pregnancy. Using Plan B early also assures a minimal risk of pregnancy. ...Read more

Had unprotected sex on Sunday &took a morning (Postinor-2)I had unprotected sex on Monday would it prevent pregnancy or do Ineed to take another pill?
Need to take...: Take a break from having sex. At least until a reliable form of birth control is begun and effective. That being said, Sunday's emergency contraceptive pill should still work on Monday. One can also ask her Ob-Gyn about putting in an IUD, which works as emergency contraception and continues to work for several years. A urine pregnancy test should be done in 3 weeks to confirm nonpregnancy. ...Read more
I wouldn't recommend: While in theory it could help, but I would never encourage any women to utilize this as a form of birth control. I would encourage you to stick with more tried and true methods of abstinence, birth control pills, diaphragms, cervical caps, IUDs, condoms/spermicide. I would strongly encourage you to consider some form of barrier to help prevent STDs too, as 'the pill' doesn't prevent STDs! ...Read more
Which medication can I use to prevent pregnancy past 3 days of unprotected sex after the periods?
On days 4-5?: If on days 4-5, there is no time to waste. If pregnancy is possible, a primary care doctor may prescribe Ella, (ulipristal) which should still work on days 4-5. Plan B may not work as well as Ella on days 4-5. Another good plan is an IUD, which can be placed by an Ob-Gyn doctor. An IUD prevents pregnancy and starts working now (plus avoids the need for future Plan B or Ella). Always plan ahead. ...Read more
