... again the same day just a few hours later am I protected? or should I take plan B again? :/
Plan b is not birth control. Using it like this is trying to treat it like birth control. You return to fertility fairly quickly after taking Plan b. Every woman is different as to how quickly fertility returns. Making one mistake happens, but why would you want to have unprotected sex again? Plan b doesnt always work, you know? It is meant as an emergency contraceptive like as in if a condom breaks. It is not intended for use as a form of contraception. Too many girls figure "Oh well, I can go ahead and have unprotected sex then I'll just take Plan b, so it is ok to have unprotected sex this once (or twice or three times)" These girls will end up finding themselves pregnant!! If you become pregnant before you take Plan b, it doesnt terminate that pregnancy. Plan b also really messes up your cycle. It is a high dose of hormones. Taking such high doses too many times, too close together can lead to bad side effects. You need to talk to a health care provider and get yourself some kind of reliable birth control like the Pill, or Depo Provera etc. Either that or use condoms and foam. It is irresponsible to continue to have unprotected sex.
