Okay i hade sex with my boyfriend last Friday, (unprotected sex) i took the pill on Monday morning. We had sex that same week i took the plan b pill, on Friday. I just want to know that if it is okay to take the pill again on the same week?
Plan b is meant for occasional, accidental contraceptive failure. It is not meant to be a birth control in itself. If you are going to be regularly sexually active you need to be using some sort of birth control. Part of being adult enough to have sex is being adult enough to plan for protection. Condoms are probably the easiest, most widely available option. Plan b is meant for something like a broken condom not just "ooops! I didnt feel like using a condom, oh well, I can just take Plan b". Plan b doesnt always work and the more you have sex and try to rely on Plan b, the more likely it is that you are going to end up with an unplanned pregnancy. Plan b only works for one episode and you return to fertility quickly. It has not been made or tested for use several times a week but if you had unprotected sex again then you would need another dose but please go to see your gynecologist or local family planning clinic and get a better method of birth control or at the very least, buy a supply of condoms to keep in your purse or whatever. Protection is easy to get and not using it is just laziness on the part of both partners.
