I have been on birth control for 2 months now, this being my 2nd month. I totally forgot to take my 2nd pill in the pack on tuesday and did NOT make it up. I continued on taking pills at normal times each night. On saturday i got sick and vomitted a small amount but i am sure it was longer than 2 hours after having taken the pill. Monday morning i had unprotected sex being only 4 days after missing pill and not making it up. I freaked out and took the plan b but it was after 48 hours, but still well under the 72 hours. What are the chances of me becoming pregnant?
Plan B is less effective the longer you leave it. It works best if taken within the first 12 hours after unprotected sex.
Unfortunately it's impossible to know your chances of pregnancy. It's just a case of doing a pregnancy test if you miss the start of your period (which can happen with Plan B).
Plan B is a huge dose of artificial hormone, that can give you hormonal symptoms for at least a week or two, & mess your menstrual cycle up.
When would your next period have been due to start? Is it always on time?
