I've been taking birth control for the past year and a couple days ago my boyfriends condom broke and he came inside of me. We then went straight to the store and bought plan b 45 mins after it happened and I took it.
Why do you girls think Plan b is some magic antipregnancy potion to stop all pregnancies??? Plan b isnt NEARLY as effective as regular birth control!! All Plan b does is delay ovulation for a few days, that is ALL it does! If a pregnancy is already in progress, it doesnt terminate the pregnancy. Guess what though? Birth control pills STOP ovulation from happening as long as you take them properly (every day at roughly the same time of day)! You DO NOT ovulate when you are on the Pill unless you screw up and miss several pills then your chances for ovulating increase because of the missed pills. So WHY would you need Plan b to delay ovulation when you DO NOT ovulate?? The ONLY time you need a condom to prevent pregnancy while on the Pill is in the first seven days of taking the Pill and anytime you miss two or more birth control pills you should use condoms as back up for seven days. Condom use any other time is for STD prevention ONLY! It is NOT necessary for contraception (preventing pregnancy)! If you were taking your birth control pill properly, you do NOT need Plan b if the condom breaks, you are already protected by your pills. Since you dont ovulate (release an egg), you cannot get pregnant no matter how many sperm are present! No egg=no baby!! Plain and simple. All Plan b will do for you is blast you with hormones you dont need. A huge blast of hormones on top of hormones that are similar that you are already getting from your birth control pill. This large blast on top of what you already take will more than likely give you increase in hormonal side effects like headache, bloating, nausea, vomiting, cramping, tender breasts etc (and what does that sound like? yes, very much like pregnancy so you are going to live terrified that you are pregnant, but you are not-it is just the high level of hormones). You can almost certainly count on your period being delayed or absent this month as a result as well so dont get excited when this happens-you are NOT pregnant. Dont do this again! It is great that you are using condoms along with the birth control pills, but if one breaks, you dont have to worry about getting pregnant. You may need to worry about exposing yourself to an STD, if you dont know your partner well, but you certainly dont need to worry about pregnancy and you certainly dont need Plan b!!! I really wish they would instruct you girls better when you are prescribed birth control pills. It is important to know how your body works and how the pills affect your body!
