Hi everyone, I had sex with my boyfriend September 18th- the condom broke and he came inside me. Immediately we went to the drug store and i took plan b around 30 minutes after. we only use condoms I've never been on birth control. according to my app, my ovulation day was September 16th- making me fertile around the time we had unprotected sex. i know i took plan b in the appropriate time- but I'm worried about the whole thing since i was ovulating. if anyone knows anything about this or if you were in a similar situation please help
If you were ovulating, then you need EllaOne, rather than Plan B. That pill has more of a chance of protecting you. If you are still within 5 days of the sex, then you can take EllaOne. Alternatively, you can have an IUD fitted by a doctor, up to 5 days after the unprotected sex. That can act as emergency contraception.
