My boyfriend had sex and used a condom but it slipped off and I had to pull it out. I took plan b 10 minutes after then 20 minutes I accidentally got sick and threw it up. The next morning I took birth control but is there a chance I could still be pregnant?
Yes, definitely! The Manufacturer states that you need to repeat the dose if you vomit (are sick) within 2 hours of taking Plan B.
Aside from that, Plan B is not as effective as regular hormonal birth control. For example: if you are ovulating when you had sex, then Plan B can't help. You'd need one of the other methods of emergency contraception; either the other emergency pill called Ulipristal Acetate or to have an IUD fitted by a doctor. Either of those things can be effective if done within 5 days/24 hours of the unprotected sex.
Hang on a second, you took Plan B 10 minutes after the condom slip up and then took birth control the next morning? Are you already on regular hormonal birth control as it sounds like you are (unless it was Plan B again)? If that is the case, pregnancy is only a remote possibility. If it was someone else's birth control it would have done nothing.
