The condom broke while we were making love, We only noticed when we finished everything. I was on the 8th day of my cycle.Meaning I started my periods on Friday and the condom broke the next Saturday. To prevent the pregnancy, I went to pee immediately and I took morning after pill two hours later. Has anyone had I success story of morning after pill. I know I was not ovulating because my cycle is normally 28 days and I was on the 8th day when the accident happen. I'm so scared. help!
You can't know for sure if you didn't ovulate. It doesn't always stick to the average. Plan B or the other morning after pills are pretty effective if taken within 72 hrs the sooner the better. You peeing will do nothing to prevent pregnancy. I don't think I'd depend on condoms to prevent pregnancy, we hear of them breaking so much. There are many methods of birth control out there.
I agree with Kaismama. One thing you can do if you want to use condoms is to add a spermicide to help kill sperm in the event of a tear or break. It is very important to use condoms that fit and not to pull them too tight over the head of the penis. You have to leave a little "reservoir" hanging off the end. If he pulls the condom down too far, it will break if there is not a reservoir. Plan b can help some but it isnt as reliable as regular birth control. Hormonal birth control is your best option as far as effectiveness in birth control methods. Taken perfectly, the Pill is 99.9% effective. Paln b is 80-95% depending on where you are in your cycle. If you havent ovulated yet, it helps to delay ovulation for a few days so sperm dies off before ovulation occurs. If you have already ovulated, it doesnt do much of anything. If pregnancy is in progress before you take Plan b, it WILL NOT terminate a pregnancy!! There is a lot of false information out there as far as what Plan b does but it doesnt terminate a pregnancy in progress. I reiterate what KM says, you cannot know when you ovulate. Not everyone is "textbook perfect" in ovulating even month to month, your ovulation times can change and it is possible to ovulate more than once in a cycle (think fraternal twins-they come from two different eggs). More than likely you will be fine but you may want to look into a more reliable method.
