My boyfriend and I had sex two nights ago and the condom ripped so I said I would get the Plan B pill and we had sex again earlier today and the condom ripped again. If I take the Plan B Pill today will it still work?
Sounds to me like you guys dont know how to use condoms! Condoms should not be tearing this easily unless you arent using them properly. Are the condoms old? Has he had them in his wallet for a while? If so, this can cause latex to break down and tear more easily so he should get rid of them and get some new ones. When applying a condom, about a quarter to a half inch should be left hanging off the tip of the penis to act as a reservoir for the semen (cum) . If he is pulling the condom on so the end is smooth over the penis and not leaving this reservoir, it will tear. You also never want to use any oil based lubricants like vaseline or baby oil because oil breaks down latex and will make it tear and disintegrate. It is okay to use KY Jelly or water based lubes. As much as I hate to say this, as I am NOT a fan of Plan b, you should probably take another dose. 2 doses so very close together is going to really mess up your cycle and it could give you some unpleasant side effects (bloating, cramping, breast tenderness, nausea etc) and you can pretty much expect your periods to be really screwed up for a few months. Plan b is less effective in subsequent doses when you take it close together but you have no other option since a dose doesnt "cover" you for days. As far as where the male ejaculates (or cums) once penetration with a naked penis occurs, there is a chance for pregnancy whether he ejaculates or not so "pulling out" before ejaculating doesnt work to protect you from pregnancy. I would advise you to see a gynecologist or visit the local family planning clinic and get yourself on some reliable birth control like the Pill, Nuva Ring, an IUD or an implant like Nexplanon or Implanon. The way you are going, you are going to wind up in trouble quickly!
