I had sex about one week ago and the guy came in me just a little bit, but of course I freaked out and got the pill. I took it about the hours later and had very mild nausea. This is my first time taking the pill (I don't have sex very often so I don't take any birth control either). I'm just worried that it may have no worked? I have a period every few months and I'm sure I was not ovulating when I had sex, but I still want to know if there is a better/sooner way to know whether I am pregnant or not. There was no spotting or any other side effects besides nausea.
There's no way of knowing until you can do a pregnancy test when you miss the start of your actual next due period. Not counting any bleeding you might get in between.
Plan B is not as effective as regular birth control. It is simply something extra you can do in an emergency situation, that might help.
Its working depends on it being able to delay your ovulation. Sperm can hang around inside you for up to 1 week, waiting for eggs to descend. This means that pregnancy can occur from sex you had a week before ovulation.
It is thought the Plan B might work in other ways, but the Manufacturer does not state this as it has not been proved in tests.
You may also want to get checked out for sexually transmitted diseases. A person can often carry them without knowing or symptoms.
Plan B is a massive dose of artificial hormone. It should only be used in total emergency & can mess your menstrual cycle up for sometimes months.
It can also give lots of hormonal symptoms for weeks.
You may not get your period on time for a month or two.
