I had sex with my boyfriend May 2 and the condom broke. I'm on a regular birth control, but it's my first go around through it and I'm only into the third week of the second pack so I'm not sure if it's fully introduced into my system yet. I took my birth control at my normal hour and then Plan B about two hours later. It's the next day and I took my birth control again like scheduled, but I'm wondering if I should take Plan B again just to be sure and careful? I take a birth control with the brown placebo pills, so I'm set to get my period in about four days when I finish the last row of white pills. But I just want to know if I should take Plan B again? I know it's a lot of hormones to dump into my system, but I want to avoid an unwanted pregnancy as much as possible.
Dear Lord, you don't need plan B. You've been protected after the first week of pills. No more plan B. Taking plan B when you're on regular birth control is foolish, its not extra protection. Routine birth control when taken correctly offers less then a 1% chance of pregnancy, Plan B less then 5 % at best. Birth control stops ovulation, plan B just delays it.
