Yes up to 5 days. Plan b works best if taken within the first 72 hours (3 days) of unprotected sex. It may still work if taken on the 4th or 5th day (up to 120 hours after unprotected sex).
Within three days. Plan b is appropriate to use within 72 hours of unprotected intercourse, or failure of your primary contraception method.
I ovulated yesterday and had unprotected sex, didnt take any pills until the next day. The next day we had unprotected sex again and then I took plan b after. Would it still work?
Decreases risk. Taking Plan B lowers the risk of unplanned pregnancy. It sounds like you should consider starting long term birth control to help prevent these scares. There are many options. You can schedule a virtual visit on healthtap today and discuss the options and get a prescription from a doctor in your state.
Will the Plan B one step pill still work for me? I have this app on my computer that tells me the day I am supposed to ovulate. I had unprotected sex on that day. I took Plan B within 12 hrs of it. I was just wondering if the fact I ovulated, or was suppo
Try. Try not to worry. The fact that you took Plan B so soon after intercourse, regardless of ovulation means the greater the chance that it will work in preventing pregnancy. Some people experience a period early after taking plan b, others do not. If you don't get your period on the 20th, then you can take an early prediction pregnacy test. Good luck!
Yes. Plan B decreases the risk of pregnancy by about 70% when used within 72 hours of unprotected intercourse. Pregnancy is still possible. If you had unprotected sex again then you need to use Plan B again. Please consider starting a more reliable form of long term birth control. IUDs and Nexplanon are the easiest, most effective option with the least side effects.
I had unprotected sex on my first day of ovulation but took a Plan B on the 3rd day of ovulation, will the pill work?
It should. It should work.
Had unprotected sex 4 days in a row during ovulation he did not pull and took Plan B the 4th day how effective would the pill be?
Not ideal. Plan b should be used withing 3 days of the event. You can use Ella (ulipristal acetate) up to 5 days from the event. If your menses is late, do a pregnancy test. And get on some birth control.
