When me and my boyfriend had unprotected sex lastnight and i think i am on my fertile week,willl the emergency contraceptive still work and when could i take it? i had my period the 8th of august and it lasted 6 days and i my cycle lasts 28 days. so by calculating my time for ovulation, i found out that it would be the 23, however i don't know if it is true. i want a faster way to prevent pregnancy and would it still be effective to take the pill? because i know that at some risk, the morning after can speed up pregnancy.
I don't know what you mean by 'the morning after can speed up pregnancy'.
If there's a strong chance you were ovulating, which sounds like the case, then you need to get the emergency contraceptive pill EllaOne, instead of Plan B.
EllaOne's ingredient (Ulipristal Acetate) works in a different way to Plan B, & is more effective at preventing pregnancy when you were already fertile.
Your other option is to get an IUD fitted by a doctor, to prevent the embryo implanting.
Both of these options have to be done within 120 hours/5 days, but are more likely to work the sooner you get them.
Hope you took Lous advice. You must be very careful and if it ever happens again whichever on you take the sooner after unprotected sex the better the pill works. If in dought just hold off for your regular birth control, Your body really gets messed up by these morning after pills.
