I had sex Wednesday night, we didn't have a condom, I know you have 72 hours to take the plan b, today is Friday and I just started my period. I should still take the pill right?
Hi Lola, why? You just said you have just got your period; it's fairly safe to assume that are not pregnant.
Take it just in case
Hello Lola! My first question is are you on birth control? If so you are completely covered but if not you can get pregnant. Sperm can stay in the body up to five days, they do not automatically die like some people think and believe. I would definitely get plan b if I were you.
I was in your situation once, I took plan b three days later and I turned out fine.
I hope everything turns out well.
