But the condom went missing! I was intoxicated and not really knowing what happened I panicked. Sunday I took plan b. Monday/ today (a day since taking plan b) I found the condom INSIDE ME! Should I take plan b again??? I can not get pregnant. I'm super scared. Help!
No because the sperm is dying as fast as the sperm you took the plan b for. Plan B that close together is allot of hormones to put in your body at once. I don't think it would be necessary for the reason I stated. If the plan B was only effective for sunday, then the sperm in you would present a problem on monday, the same as the sperm in the condom. And that is not the case.
This can happen when intoxicated people try to use condoms. If the male softens up, the condom can come off and be pushed up inside the female and if the male is intoxicated, he may not notice. This is also why spermicides should ALWAYS be used along WITH condoms, just in case the condom breaks or slips, there is the spermicide to help kill sperm. Taking Plan b is about all you can do and it is about 80-95% effective, depending on where you are in your cycle. All emergency contraception does is hopefully delay ovulation long enough for sperm to die out, which takes about 3 days or so. If you already ovulated, emergency contraception does little to nothing. It wont terminate a pregnancy in progress. I dont know why you ladies who are sexually active dont get onto more reliable forms of birth control, like the Pill (which is 99.9% effective and PREVENTS ovulation from ever happening when taken correctly) Unless there is some reason you cant take the Pill. There are other hormonal options like Depo-Provera shots, patches, implants like Nexplanon, and IUDs like Mirena. Barrier methods like condoms or even the diaphragm are never a good idea when one is intoxicated because the effectiveness relies on user competence to be effective.
