I had sex and the condom "slipped off." I'd had a lot to drink and realized what was happening... I think right when it happened... but I can't be sure. I do know that we stopped and he did not ejaculate inside of me, but there may have been precum. At first I didn't think I had anything to worry about, and then I freaked out and bought/took Plan B 26-28 hours later. The only symptom I've had so far are tender breasts, but they felt that way during/after sex and continued to feel that way, each day less so. It's now been about 2.5 days since the incident happened. I'm supposed my start my period within the next week or so, so I don't think I was ovulating.
Has anyone had a similar experience to this and can offer peace of mind?
It's impossible to know if Plan B worked for me. I took it about the same time as you, but in order to know if it worked, I'd have to know for certain that I would have got pregnant if I hadn't used Plan B, which is impossible to say. Lots of women try to get pregnant around ovulation time, but don't. I'd say you've a good chance of not becoming pregnant, but it just depends whether you were ovulating at the time you had sex. Plan B works by delaying your ovulation. If it can't do that, then it may not work. There is less chance of pregnancy if there was no ejaculation, but it is still certainly possible. If you want an extra measure, you can have an IUD fitted within 5 days of the unprotected sex. That can act as emergency contraception.
