Two days ago, my boyfriend and I got a little frisky and had some morning sex. He wore a condom. (TMI, so sorry.) While changing positions, it turned into anal which both of us quickly realized wasn't what either of us wanted. He pulled out and then we realized the condom had broke. He assumed that happened from anal. I took the day after pill 20 hours later. My period should be coming exactly 10 days from when we had sex. How nervous should I be about ovulation, the possibility of the condom breaking during vaginal intercourse without our knowledge, and this pill actually working.
There's no way we can tell you when the condom broke! You've taken Plan B, although you took it outside of the first 12 hours, so it will be slightly less guaranteed than if you'd taken it within the first 12 hours (which would have been 95% ish). It will still be pretty close to that in effectiveness, though. If you'd left it until 3 days later, it'd still have had a chance of providing around 75% effectiveness.
You might bleed after taking Plan B, which could be anything from spotting (pink or brown) to heavy flow.
Your actual period itself is likely to be up to a couple of weeks late. For some it's more or less than that. It depends where you are in your cycle, as to what symptoms you seen to get. I can vouch for that.
Alongside that, you may get hormonal symptoms, such as if you were getting a period or if you were pregnant, like spots, mood swings, cramps, back ache, breast soreness/leaking, nausea, tiredness etc. etc.
You are likely to be around your ovulation time at the moment, so the Plan B may be too late to postpone the ovulation, but hopefully it may still protect you by making the lining of the womb unsuitable for a pregnancy to grow, & thicken your cervical mucus, so that the sperm cannot reach the egg.
A couple of tips, in case you didn't know:
*Not advisable to switch from anal to vaginal sex, whilst wearing the same condom. It is likely to cause vaginal thrush, so best to change condoms if you want to do it in future.
*Hold the teat of the condom closed whilst it's rolled onto his penis. This prevent air getting trapped in it, & causing the condom to burst during intercourse. If there's no air in there, it can't pop.
*Always hold the condom on the base of the penis as he withdraws. This stops it sliding off inside of you..
*Never continue to have intercourse once he's come, with the same condom still on him. As soon as he loses his erection, the condom will stop being tight, & will either slide off inside you, or leak into you.
