... should I do?
Plan B might be able to help you, but the closer you are to ovulation, the more I'd suggest using the other emergency pill called Ella (Ulipristal Acetate).
Plan B works by delaying your ovulation until the sperm leaves your body. If you're already ovulating or very close to it, then it may not be able to help you.
Some think it works in other ways, but the Manufacturer does not claim that. They say it's possible, but don't say it does, as it has not been proven.
Ella works in additional ways.
At this stage, either pill may work for you. It depends on how long you wait.
Emergency contraception is not as effective as regular hormonal birth control, it's simply worth a try in an emergency.
