I was given uti medication on a Saturday 9/21 and finished my meds on 9/25 . I'm on cryselle birthcontrol and I had protected sex 3days after my uti medication was done and the condom ripped so that Saturday 9/28 I took a plan b pill because I am not sure if my birth control is working normally. Today is 10/1 an i start my 3 week of active pills but I had unprotected sex and now I'm worried if I don't take another plan b pill I will become pregnant. So I suppose I have 2 questions of which would be do I need a plan b pill again? And is my birth control working normally being that I've been off my uti medication for 6 days?
Its possible you will become pregnant. Plan B is a nasty medicine to take 2 that close together. It may be necessary tho. Your bc pills will be working again, but you should probably have been using a condom for the first 7 days, just because you went into the inactive week with your antibiotic interferring with your bc pill.
I wouldnt take another Plan b. It is too close to the other one and it is likely unnecessary if you finished your abx on 9/25, you are close to seven days after. It is kind of right on the line there but I think you will be okay. Plan b really doesnt offer that much more protection for the amount of side effects you will get from taking it so close. It only gives you about a 5% better chance than not using anything at all.
