I had unprotected sex but I took the morning after pill but the next day we had unprotected sex & I didn't took the pill does it still work?

No it does not. The morning after pill only works for the sex you had. It is not effective for sex you have after you take the morning after pill. You would need to take another pill. Obviously protected sex will alleviate these concerns. Read more...

Will the morning after pill work if you had unprotected sex more than once on the same occasion and took the pill a few hours after?

Yes, but... Remember the morning after pill is nowhere near 100% effective. Most studies put it around 80% effective, meaning you have a 1 in 5 chance of getting pregnant if you have unprotected sex during your fertile time and use this product. Not the best odds I would want to deal with when failure means you have a child to deal with for a lifetime. If you're not ready for that, I suggest you get on other. Read more...

I had unprotected sex during ovulation will the morning after pill work? He pulled out, but im still not sure if nothing got in.

Yes. A morning-after pill taken the day after sex is very effective in preventing pregnancy. It is about 95% effective, which translates to: if 100 women take the pill the day after sex, about 5 women get pregnant, and 95 will not get pregnant from that sex. The morning-after pill works less well on days 3, 4, or 5 after sex. One can do a urine pregnancy test 3 weeks after sex to verify non-pregnancy. Read more...

Hi I had unprotected sex on monday while I was ovulating if I take the morning after pill (i pill) four days after will it still work?

Maybe not, but... But, what does it mean if an i-Pill doesn't work? If it means a woman would have the same chance of pregnancy as if she did not take an i-Pill, her chances of pregnancy would average 20-25%. That means without an i-Pill, she might not get pregnant... or she might and then, of course, have a baby to keep her company. Consider asking the doctor for Ella (ulipristal acetate) or an IUD, which may work even 5 days out. Read more...

I have a normal 7 day period but it only lasted 4 days this month. I had unprotected sex and I also took the morning after pill can I still be pregnan?

Unlikely. Not sure about the sequence of things, but certainly if you had a period since you had unprotected sex and used emergency contraception you are very likely not pregnant. The fact that the period was shorter, only 4 days, could be related to the use of the Plan B. Pursue more reliable contraception:) Read more...

I took the morning after pill 2 days after unprotected sex, I had my period the same day as the unprotected sex. Will this effect the pill?

No problem. Since you got your period when or just after unprotected sex, you can't get pregnant. Taking the morning after pill won't affect things, but change your next period a bit. Please use contraception if you don't wish to get pregnant. Read more...

I started my pill a day late I took 2 the following day and one the next the same time I had unprotected sex I took morning after pill am I protected?

Probably. You should be protected from the morning after pill if it was taken promptly. The worst pill to miss ( and the most common pill to miss) is the first pill in a new pack, because you have already been off 7 days during the placebo week. Being off more than 7 days can trigger ovulation. If you are on the type of pill that has only 4 placebo pills then it is not worrisome to miss the first pill. Read more...

What if I had unprotected sex with my wife but didn't release inside. She took morning after pill on the same day. Is there any probability of pregnency?

Yes but low risk. There is definitely a risk of pregnancy with unprotected sex even without ejaculation in vagina, as the pre-ejaculation seminal fluid contains sperm. Morning after pills like Plan B are very effective. If you take it within 72 hours after you've had unprotected sex, Plan B one-step can reduce the risk of pregnancy by up to 89%. Within 24 hours, it is about 95% effective. Nothing is 100%. Read more...
