On November 1st my boyfriend and I had sex and although he did use a condom I'm still a bit nervous and anxious of the possibility of pregnancy. I'm too youngto be a mother and he is 18, I know it's probably silly to be worrying so much but I rather be safe than sorry, someone please help!!! It's been 2 days since we've had sex so is it too late to take it?
I believe they say 'within 72 hours,' but the earlier the better. What method have you guys been using in the past that has caused you less tension? Or was this your first time?
When I was a teenager, my boyfriend was so anxious about pregnancy, he had me wear a Today(TM) sponge (it was a sponge you wet and got all squishy and put inside you, and it released spermicide - it's now off the market because it was giving women infections), but then he also insisted on wearing TWO condoms on top of it. I'm talking, he was FAH-REAKED OUT.
Condoms are fairly reliable, but they can fail. If he used a condom that he had been carrying around in his wallet - no good. They age, they dry, they lose elasticity, they can get small punctures. If the condom came off of his penis as he was 'pulling out of you,' there is a chance that spermatozoa could have snuck out. If the condom broke and left just a ring around his penis, then yes, you have a reason to be concerned. If none of these things happened, it sounds like normal, healthy usage, which would be safe.
You might want to watch a video on the internet on how to correctly apply a condom because you can apply them inside-out, and you can also apply them and leave a bubble of air trapped at the top. The key is to roll them on right-side-on and squeeze the bubble out. I'm sure there are a lot of videos out there where they use a banana or something as an example. :)
I hope this helps! Meggie
Plan B is a HUGE dose of hormone for your body to handle. If you had safe sex, then I wouldn't use it. Only if you think there's a chance it wasn't safe.
It will mess up your menstrual cycle for weeks, possibly months. You may get any hormonal symptoms you'd get with a period or pregnancy.
To see if Plan B would work for you, can you give me the start date of your last period, & tell me if you are regular with your periods, please? It may not be the best emergency method for you.
