So I had sex a couple of days ago and I'm on a birth control named Skyla it's a implant, but he didnt cum inside he came on the out side of my vagina but we whipe it away and then just to make sure i took plan B several hours later can I still me pregnant?
How long have you had the Skyla implant in? If it was placed within 7 days after the start (Day 1-7) of your period, you are protected right away. If Skyla was not placed in the first seven days after the start of your period, you should use back up protection, like a condom, for the first seven days after insertion. If you had Skyla in longer than seven days, there was NO need for Plan b. Skyla is MUCH more effective than Plan b anyway. The reason they tell you to use condoms with Skyla is because Skyla does not protect you from STD's. You dont need to use condoms for prevention of pregnancy, they are to protect against STD's (unless you are using them the first seven days as back up protection until the Skyla is in long enough to begin working). If Skyla was in place longer than seven days and you are checking your "strings" after each period and they are in place, then there is next to no chance for pregnancy (less than 1% chance) so much much more effective than Plan b!! Now that you have taken Plan b, it has added a lot of extra hormones that you likely didnt need so dont be surprised if your periods are very irregular or late. Plan b does this. Next time, as long as you are checking your strings for placement and all is good, you are protected from pregnancy even if he does ejaculate inside you-no need for any other form of birth control. If you are not certain if your partner is STD free, then you want to use a condom to protect you against STD's. If you know your partner is STD free and having sex ONLY with you, then you do not need condoms as you are protected from pregnancy by Skyla.
