Feeling nausea and dizziness are some of the symptoms. It’s been 5 days since I took Plan B. What are the chances of Plan B working for me? Have two children already and am not ready for 3rd one
Plan B is unlikely to have worked.
It works by delaying your ovulation until the sperm leaves your body. If you're already ovulating then it can't do that.
You'd need one of the other methods of emergency contraception, such as the other emergency pill called Ulipristal Acetate (Ella).
Some think Plan B works in other ways, but the Manufacturer does not claim that. They say it's possible, but don't say it does, as it has not been proven.
If you'd already ovulated, then you didnt need Plan B. You'd be passed your time to conceive.
If you were just relying on an app or website, to tell you when you were fertile, then they only estimate your ovulation. It's not a reliable predictor of when exactly you'd ovulate, not to the exact day. It varies between women.
Worst case scenario is that you had sex right on ovulation. In that situation, Plan B might have helped, but it's unlikely. However, not everyone who is trying to conceive, does so, every time they ovulate. You may be lucky.
