Will Plan B work?
See, this month I’ve taken Plan B twice. Both times there was no ejaculation involved since he pulled out, but I still took it since I had medium chance of pregnancy according to my period tracker app. Anyway, I took the first Plan B in one occasion and the other one, was a week later. However, I started bleeding right after taking it, and bled for 10 days. (I don’t know if this is my period or bleeding cause by two Plan B doses, but if it was my period, it came like 20 days before it usually does).
According to my period tracker app, I am ovulating today. I input the 10 days of bleeding as my period, and that changed my usual cycle to this new one. I do not have the usual discharge I would have whilst on ovulation week.
So, my question is, if I am truly ovulating today... if I take Plan B, will avoid pregnancy?
Will Plan B work on this mess?

Will Plan B work?
Plan B works by delaying your ovulation. If you're already ovulating then it can't do that. You'd need one of the other methods of emergency contraceptive. Either the other emergency pill called Ulipristal Acetate or to have an IUD fitted by a doctor.
Plan B is a huge dose of artificial hormone for your body to deal with. It's meant for total emergencies. There are no studies done to research the long term effects of such frequent use. It's unknown what you are doing to your body, & what problems you may develop later in life.
Your menstrual cycle will be all over the place at the moment, & the bleeding you've had after taking them, is unlikely to be a proper period. It's caused by the Plan B. You've no way of knowing when your ovulation will happen, & won't know for a good few months. It could be happening now... who knows.
Relying on Plan B this much, you're likely to be a mum soon. It's not as effective as regular hormonal birth control, it's simply worth a try in an emergency. Better than leaving it to chance.
Your partner doesn't need to ejaculate to get you pregnant.
