I'm not fertile right now. The condom broke both times. It broke the first time, took plan B and hour later, then an hour after that, the condom broke again. Should I take plan B again? Or what should I do? Thank you!!!
You should learn how to put condoms on correctly. It will stop them breaking.
When the condom is about to be put on his penis, hold the tip. This prevents air getting trapped inside the condom, as you roll it down. If air gets trapped inside, it may lead to the condom bursting during intercourse.
Always hold the base of the condom on the penis as he withdraws. This prevents it accidentally slipping off inside of you.
You would not have been protected against sexually transmitted disease once the condom broke, so you might want to get checked out, as you only have your partners word that he wasn't (even unknowingly) carrying one.
You can't take another dose of Plan B within the same cycle. The only other thing you can do is to have a coil fitted (within 5 days of unprotected sex). That is another form of emergency birth control, as it prevents an embryo implanting into the lining of the womb.
You may experience hormonal symptoms for the next couple of weeks, as a result of taking the Plan B. You could bleed from taking it, & then might find your next period is up to a couple of weeks late.
Any bleeding you do have, could be spotting, brown discharge, ordinary period-type bleeding, or very heavy. You may experience symptoms such as sore/leaking breasts, back ache, mood swings, cramping, bloating etc.
