I'm begging for someone to please just give me some reassurance. I had sex with my boyfriend about 5 days ago. We used a condom but it broke. We are almost sure he had pulled out before he came but obviously we can't be for sure and I know there is also pre-ejaculation fluid. I immediately went to get a Plan B pill and took the pill with food about 2 hours after the condom broke. But here's where I worry. I have PCOS and have been taking about 500 mg of metformin for about 3 months. I have had no period during this time and immediately stopped taking the pills after this event. So should I worry or do I have a shot at coming out pregnancy free? Please help
Plan B what are my odds?

The Metformin won't have stopped the Plan B from working, if it was going to work.
As you took the Plan B within 12 hours, there's a good chance (89%) that it will prevent pregnancy by delaying any ovulation you might have been approaching.
If you do an internet search on correct condom usage, there are ways you can prevent most incidents of breakage.
