Can someone get pregnant even if they took plan b one step within the 3 days? Do all plan b pills work?
IF you are already pregnant Plan B will not affect your pregnancy, and yes you can get pregnant using plan b within the 72 hour window of time allotted. Everything that prevents pregnancy, including birth control, whether it be pills or condoms, etc, can always fail. Plan B can also fail. Nothing works 100% of the time.
Yes,pregnancy is definitely still possible. No birth control method other than abstinence works 100% of the time. Many regular birth control methods, like "the Pill" for example, when taken correctly are about 99% effective. Plan b's effectiveness has some variables depending on how soon after coitus (intercourse or sex) it is taken and how often Plan b is used. Studies show it reduces the pregnancy rate from 8% chance with no contraceptive use to about 1%. Emergency contraceptives are not as effective as routine contraception since their failure rate, while low based on a single use, would accumulate over time with repeated use
