Okay so I'm stupid. I took plan b 3 times with in 7 months all because of really messed up situations. And last time the condom broke he was pulling out but he came inside me so i took the pill with in 15 hours. The last time i took the pill it was two periods ago. I had my period 10 days ago. I don't know if i was ovulating when the condom broke. So i was reading online the pill less effective after the 3rd time. How likes is it that it's true? And how soon can i go on birth control? I know the plan b pill isn't 100% of me not being pregnant but how like am i not pregnant? Also is the pill less active during ovulation?
As this was posted almost 2 weeks ago, I assume you will know by now whether or not you were pregnant. I'm sorry no one answered your question before me.
There is no reason why the 3rd time would be any less effective than the first time, if all things were equal. However, 1 dose is a massive dose of hormone for your body to process. To take it 3 times in 7 months, will likely leave you with a lot of hormonal symptoms, such as irregular periods, interim bleeding.spotting, heavy bleeding, mood swings, depression, sore breasts, back ache, cramps etc.
No one really knows for sure what sort of long term effects taking this many doses will have. It is thought to be safe if you don't use it more than once per cycle.
