My boyfriend and i had sex three nights in a row. I took Plan B on the 4th day but then we had sex again that same night.. I dont know if i could possibly have a chance at being pregnant. My last period was two weeks ago. Would Plan B still work even though we had sex the same night i took it? I really need some insight because i cant wait any longer to see if i get my period or not!
Plan B is only effective if used within 72 hours of unprotected sex, so by taking it on the 4th day, you were not covered against the 1st unprotected sex incident.
If outside of 72 hours, another pill, called EllaOne can be used, or you can have a Coli/IUD fitted. Both of these can be done up to 120 hours (5 days) after unprotected sex.
With Plan B, it is most effective if taken within 12 hours (95), & becomes less effective as time goes on, across the 3 days.
So you could have become pregnant from the 1st day you had unprotected sex, & the Manufacturer's guidelines state that you are not covered against pregnancy for any episodes of unprotected sex that occur after you have taken the drug.
As your last period was 2 weeks ago, you are likely to be at your most fertile time of the month.
All in all... yes, you could be pregnant.
If you have been lucky & are not Plan B can make your next period come a couple of weeks late, & may make you spot or bleed before hand.
It seems you are giving conception a pretty decent go. I can see why you might like some insight but why can you you not wait until you get your period or not? You are going to probably have a delayed period due to the plan B but a home pregnancy test will probably have to wait until you have missed your period by at least a week, maybe two.
I would personally like some further insight from the girls: kaismama or LousArk whom I have a lot of respect for.
Good luck :-)
