i had sex w a ex 6 days after my period ended (nov 15th). we used protection, but it got lost inside, he pulled it out slow, but not sure if anything went inside of me. the next day(nov 16th) i purchased and took plan b 1 step to prevent pregnancy by him. 4 days later (nov 19th) i had unprotected sex with my regular sexual partner. i have a regular 24 days cycle, my period is due to come tomorrow nov 29th and according to a ovulation calculater i was due to ovulate on the 15th of nov... am i safe from becoming pregnant? if not is it more likely than male number 2 would be the father?
Can I get pregnant after taking plan b 1 step and then having unprotected sex 4 days later?

Omg girl, you're playing russian roulette. Plan B doesn't work being taken 4 days before sex. It has to be taken within 72hrs after sex. If you're not pregnant you're one lucky girl. Please get on the birth control pill to end all this drama. Go to your dr, make sure you're not pregnant, then get the pill. It would be more likely daddy number 2, but anything is possible.

Hi june607, it truly sounds like you are most likely pregnant. As kaismama has indicated, daddy number 2 needs to be informed. But first take a home pregnancy test, to make certain that you are pregnant.
You really should be on birth control pills, as kais has also suggested. Is there a reason why you are NOT on birth control pill?

Pulling out before ejaculation is a wasted gesture-it does absolutely nothing to prevent pregnancy. I'm not sure you are ready for pregnancy if you cant even be faithful to your partner, but that is your business. It is possible you could be pregnant and in my opinion, it could have happened with either one of them. You are also at risk for an STD with multiple partners. You need to start being more responsible with your body.

Dear June, if you do wish to conceive, please get on some prenatal vitamins TOMORROW. Don't wait, the folic acid in prenatals, helps prevent birth defects like Down syndrome and neural tube defects like spina bifida. The emergency kit for birth control, is famous for delaying cycles. So don't be too surprised if you don't start tomorrow, as you think you are supposed to. If it has been 3 weeks since the unplanned encounter, you may be able to take a home pregnancy test. It takes around 3 weeks after an encounter, before you would get accurate results. A dr can run a blood test and see color changes in the cervix and tell a bit sooner but it may be a week or so more, can't tell from the dates you list, as the earliest you can take a home test. If you remember the date, and 3 weeks have passed, then you should get accurate results on that test, if less, it may be too early to tell with a home kit. The vitamins are available over the counter in many stores and are potty cheap. It is best to be on them if you wish to conceive. Patti
