Condom broke on 11/1, took Plan B less then 2 hours after incident and I'm very nervous. My last period began on 10/23 and ended on 10/27. Mine comes usually 3 to 4 weeks so average like 23-25 days. My tracker says I should be Ovulating today 11/2. Will i get pregnant since it was so close to my predicted ovulation day but i'm not very knowledgeable of how my body works in that way. Also to note if this helps at all, my boyfriend is a cancer survivor and did extensive amounts of chemo and radiation about 4 years ago and i'm not sure if that would reduce his sperm count. Please help me we're not ready to have a baby!! Thanks for any help provided!
The hope is, that Plan B will delay your ovulation, but even if it doesn't, it is thought that it also prevents pregnancy by making the lining of the womb unsuitable for a pregnancy, & by thickening cervical mucus, to prevent sperm meeting with the egg to fertilise it.
If you want an extra precaution, then you could have an IUD/Coil fitted. That can be done up to 5 days after unprotected sex, & can be left in place for continual contraception.
A tip - When the condom is about to be put on his penis, hold the tip. This prevents air getting trapped inside the condom, as you roll it down. If air gets trapped inside, it may lead to the condom bursting during intercourse.
Always hold the base of the condom on the penis as he withdraws. This prevents it accidentally slipping off inside of you.
Lmartin13 So far what you are saying is normal for the plan B and it really messes with your hormones and in most cases you well also have your period again,could be a little later than normal maybe heaver and darker etc. at this point don't worry but there are lots of things that won;t see right after you took the plan B The plan B taking the way you did you would have next to no chance of being pregnant. Any doubt talk to your pharmacist that is what they are there for and know much more on these medications.
