Yesterday (Oct.13) I had protected sex but it wasn't sex in the moment me and my boyfriend were just trying it out and experimenting , we were doing fine and the condom was working until we tried a different position and as he put his penis in half way slowly we heard a loud pop and he immediately pulled out and we both went straight the bathroom to look at the condom and it had a side hole where the penis had came through it .. I took plan B almost two hours after ,( we noticed his pre cum was sort of in the condom we weren't very sure if it was vagina liquid or not but but when the condom was off his penis we noticed he was releasing pre cum at the point ,) I'm 180 pounds and I'm also skeptical of if its going to be effective on me and if I should take something else or take plan b again today (Oct.14) to also lessen the chances of anything happening. My last period started also Sept. 28 and Oct.2 it was my first normal period in awhile since its always irregular when I'm always active.. So I'm also not sure when I'm fertile or not .. I wasn't as worried as I am now the next day on reading everything of plan b and such so I just need answers and help and concerns . Thank you.
You can't take Plan B more than once in the same cycle (Day 1 of your cycle is the first day of your period).
If you need emergency contraception in future, EllaOne is better for those with a BMI of more than 26. or you could have a coil/IUD fitted.
You could still have a coil fitted, even after using Plan B, if you are worried. That will also act as future birth control. It can be inserted up to 5 days after unprotected intercourse.
There is only sperm in pre-cum, if your partner has masturbated in the few hours prior to intercourse, as it is washed out of the urethra as he empties his bladder.
Although Plan B states that it is not good for those of a BMI greater than 26, I have used it when my BMI was 28 ish, & not become pregnant. Of course, it's impossible to use that as a definite yard stick, as it depends if I would have become pregnant had I not used it, which is impossible to know for sure.
You are fertile around day 14 of your cycle, if you are in the majority of women. Some are later, some sooner.
Sperm can life inside a woman for up to 6 days, under the right circumstances, so if you are in the period of your cycle between days 8-18 'ish', that it LIKELY to be your most fertile time, but not definitely. As your periods are irregular, it's hard to know where you were, for sure. Unless you monitor your fertility signs (that's a useful thing to do).
If you're still worried, your best bet would be a coil/IUD.
