Im freaking out ):
No, take it as soon as possible after sex. Plan b is meant to stop you from ovulating for a short time. You return to fertility quickly so it doesnt protect you for days, but it may stop ovulation long enough that all the sperm present from sex will die off before fertilizing an egg. This is why it is important to take it as close to the sex as possible. If an egg is present and is fertilized before taking Plan b, Plan b wont stop a pregnancy in progress. It is best to use spermicide in addition to condoms to kill any perm in the event of a condom break. Condoms alone are not very reliable. Also, if a guy keeps a condom in his wallet next to his warm butt, it causes the condom to break down over time and this weakening can lead to a break. Condoms should be stored in your purse or in a bathroom etc. away from temperature extremes. Do not use any oil or petroleum based lubricants like baby oil or Vaseline because this breaks down latex and will weaken a condom. Use only water-based lubricants, such as K-Y jelly or AstroGlide, with latex condoms. Oil-based lubricants like petroleum jelly, cold cream, butter, or mineral and vegetable oils damage latex and will make the condom ineffective at preventing pregnancy and infection. When a man puts a condom on, he needs to leave the tip loose to have room for the ejaculate. If he pulls the condom down tight and smooth over the penis without leaving the very tip off the penis for the ejaculate (cum/semen) the condom will break. So be sure that you are using condoms properly. Per instruction on Planned Parenthood website: Each package of condoms includes detailed instructions. Be sure to read and understand the instructions and check the expiration date before you use a condom.
Put the condom on before the penis touches the vulva. Men leak fluids from their penises before and after ejaculation. This fluid can carry enough germs to pass sexually transmitted infections and possibly cause pregnancy.
Use a condom only once. Use a fresh one for each erection ("hard-on"). Have a good supply on hand.
Condoms usually come rolled into a ring shape. They are individually sealed in aluminum foil or plastic. Be careful — don't tear the condom while unwrapping it. If it is torn, brittle, stiff, or sticky, throw it away and use another.
Put a drop or two of lubricant inside the condom.
Pull back the foreskin, unless circumcised, before rolling on the condom.
Place the rolled condom over the tip of the hard penis.
Leave a half-inch space at the tip to collect semen.
Pinch the air out of the tip with one hand while placing it on the penis.
Unroll the condom over the penis with the other hand.
Roll it all the way down to the base of the penis.
Smooth out any air bubbles. (Friction against air bubbles can cause condom breaks.)
Lubricate the outside of the condom. They also have a film clip on Planned Parenthood that shows how to use a condom properly.
