My bf and I had unprotected sex (Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday) I took the Plan B on Tuesday 2hrs after the last act. Does it matter that we had unprotected sex that many times before taking the Pill? N yes I kno I'm getting on BC I'm well aware that it was bad judgment on us both. So no need to bash!
What's at question is if it will cover that Saturday. Its supposed to be taken within 72 hrs of sex, preferably less.
It works best if you take it within 36 hours of your sexual encounter so it is doubtful that it will cover you for Saturdays sex. If an egg was fertilzed and implanted, it will NOT terminate that pregnancy in progress so if you did have an available egg that was fertilized on Saturday, it will not stop the pregnancy.
Did u end up pregnant? Wondering because I'm in the same situation?
It might cover you first sex you had up to 72hrs prior to taking it, but not longer than that. You left it too long. There's therefore a realistic chance of pregnancy.
Plan B is less reliable than regular birth control, even when taken within 72 hrs. It won't work if you are ovulating, neither. You'd need one of the other 2 measures.
