If a home ovulation test says you are ovulating, is the Plan B pill not likely to prevent pregnancy?

In brief: Incorrect

Plan b does not prevent ovulation.
It actually works by preventing implantation of an egg onto the uterus. Keep in mind that nothing is 100% effective, and that Plan B works best if the directions are followed exactly.

In brief: It should work

The Plan B regimen is designed to prevent implantation of a fertilized ovum.
If you don't ovulate you don't need it.
