So coincidentally during my first time having sex I made a horrible joke about getting pregnant because I’m not on the Pill and I was having sex during ovulation. However as we were changing positions the condom broke. While he wasn’t in me when it broke and he hadn’t finished in that condom I’m still worried. He was very close to me. He thinks we are safe but I’m a little (very!!) paranoid. Should I take Plan B just in case? My period is already very irregular so I’ll be paranoid till then but I don’t wanna risk another couple weeks to find out.
Plan B will not work for you in this situation.
It works by delaying your ovulation until the sperm leaves your body. As you were already ovulating, it can't help.
People often think it works in other ways, too, but the Manufacturer does not claim that.
In your situation, you'd need either the other emergency pill called Ulipristal Acetate (Ella), or to have an IUD fitted by a doctor. You have 5 days/120 hours from the time you had sex, to use either of those methods.
You can become pregnant from his pre-ejaculatory fluid/pre-cum.
