so i got off my period on November 8th. my boyfriend & i had sex on November 13th. we used a condom but about 10 minutes in the condom popped. he automatically started freaking out, i did as well but i was trying to calm him down. my calendar says i don't ovulate until today (november 17th) but we still worried & cried together. luckily we had enough money & the next day after school i went to buy plan b 1 step. i took it about 25 - 26 hours after the incident. do you think this will work?
You need a pill called Ulipristal Acetate, which you can get from a doctor. Depending on the law in your Country, you may be able to get it from a pharmacy/drug store. It works in a different way, & is more likely to prevent pregnancy so close to ovulation.
In the days leading up to your ovulation, your cervical mucus changes so that it can preserve any sperm you come into contact with, ready for when your eggs descend. Plan B works by delaying ovulation, but if you are close to it, it may not be able to do that. This is why you need either the pill I have mentioned, or to have an IUD fitted by a doctor. Both of these things can be done within 5 days of the unprotected sex.
