Me and my boyfriend wanted to have sex and we keep a spare Plan B around just in case but i had ran out of my birth control and he didn't have condoms. So i took the pill before we had sex. Will the pill work the same? Or do i need to go and get another one?
Does the Plan B pill work if you take it before sex?

I haven't been taking my birth control for a few weeks due to some medical reasons. We are always careful but this time it just was the heat of the moment
The Manufacturer states that you are not covered for any sex you have once you've taken Plan B.
Plan B is not as effective as regular hormonal birth control. It's simply worth a try in an emergency. Might be better than nothing.
If you are fertile when you have sex, then Plan B may not work for you. Plan B works by delaying your ovulation until the sperm leaves your body. If you're already ovulating then it can't do that, & you'd need one of the other methods of emergency contraception.
Some think Plan B works in other ways, but the Manufacturer does not claim that. They say it's possible, but don't say it does, as it has not been proven.
In that situation I'd suggest using the other emergency pill called Ulipristal Acetate (Ella).
