I had unprotected sex around the time of ovulation and took Plan B within an hour. Will Plan B work even if I'm ovulating or ovulated already?

High risk . Having sex around the time of ovulation is a high-risk situation for pregnancy. If sex was within 72 hours and you do not desire pregnancy consider taking plan b. It's available over-the-counter and decreases the risk of an unplanned pregnancy. Also consider scheduling a visit to discuss your birth control options to prevent the situation in the future.

No, it does not. Plan B works by making your body not ovulate. If you are already ovulating when you had the unprotected sex, Plan B will do nothing. Sperm usually lasts about 5 days. Plan B is to keep you from ovulating if you havent already, while the sperm is still alive. . Read more...

I'm ovulating. Will Plan B still work for me? I took it about an hour after the unprotected sex ocurred.

Hopefully... Ovulation time, of course, is 'prime time' for getting pregnant! Plan B will hopefully work, but get a pregnancy test if you do not get a normal period when expected. And make an appointment with your doctor or planned parenthood to find some reliable birth control so you don't have to worry. Good luck. Lgromko, md. Read more...

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!

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...

Your question is... ...confusing b/c you're suggesting that u might be ovulating x2 this cycle. Did u base your 8/7 ovulation on the calendar and the 8/13 on the OPK? If your periods are irregular, u should go by the OPK results. If u took Plan B early in your cycle, u could still ovulate 6 days later. Don't count on Plan B from 8/7 to prevent ovulation today!
