Hi, we were having sex, when I pulled out I noticed the condom was broke. I don't know how long it had been broke or what, I pulled out like I do even with the condom to be sure. But I don't know if I got any in there. She is on the pill but she just got her prescription refilled and she just started up again. I freaked out and we went and got plan b. She took this probably 30 min after we had sex. I'm still freaking out a little, could she be pregnant? And when will I know for sure? Should I be concerned??
How long has she been back on her regular birth control? Had she not had enough of those to be covered against pregnancy, or were you just being extra careful by taking Plan B as well?
Assuming she was NOT covered by her regular birth control, then Plan B would work by delaying her ovulation. If she was already ovulating, then it can't help her. She'd need another form of emergency contraception within 5 days/120 hours of the unprotected sex. That would be either the other pill, Ulipristal Acetate, or to have an IUD (coil) fitted inside her uterus, by a doctor.
If it helps, most women ovulate around 2 weeks after the first day of their period, assuming that their periods are regular.
