So I had sex with a guy on Saturday December 26, he wore a condom but it broke, which means he came inside me. A lot. And so the next day a little over 24 hrs I took the plan b pill. I was expecting my period sometime that following week, well I got my period exactly when I was expecting it. It wasn't late, it wasn't early. It was pretty much spot on. So on December 31st; I got my period (New Years eve) and of course being that it was New Year's Eve having so much fun, I had sex with that guy again! (No alcohol was involved) Mind you I was on my period and I just started that day, well he wore a condom, but it broke... Again. And so he came in me again. So does the pill still work for the second time he came? Or should I take another pill?
No the first pill doesn't cover you for the next instance of unprotected sex. You don't know that you didn't become pregnant from the first incident, as the bleeding you had could very well have just been caused by the Plan B, which is very common.
The Manufacturer states that you're not covered for any further instances once you've taken the drug.
You are not supposed to take more than 1 dose of Plan B, in any one cycle. If you have to, then you have to, but you may get lots more side effects than you did the first time, & your period could be either non-existant or irregular, for several months.
The other thing you could do, is to have a Coil/IUD fitted by a doctor. It can be used as emergency contraception up to 5 days after unprotected sex, & can be left in place for long term contraception.
It's worth reading up on correct condom use, as there are things you can do to stop them breaking. If more than one has broken so close together, it's down to not using them correctly.
