My partner and I were having sex and the first time we were having sex my condom fell off when I took my penis out to adjust myself and it fell on the floor ( I did not go back in unprotected) then a few minutes later we had sex again this time my condom broke while I was taking my penis out . Both times I did NOT ejaculate in or around her at all. After these incidents she took a plan b pill to be safe about 30-45 minutes after these incidents happened( we took the pill after the second incident ) Her last period was June 30 and we had these incidents on July 10 and she said she doesn't start to ovulate until July 13 so I'm stressing about whether the plan b will protect us fully until then or should she take a second one to be safe? The plan b says it will last for 3 days but semen stays in the vagina for up to 5 days and maybe longer. So should we take another one? Please help as soon as possible before its too late !
You need to hold the base of the condom when you withdraw, to prevent it sliding off.
Do an internet search on correct condom use, as there are ways to stop them breaking.
Plan B doesn't 'last for 3 days', there's a 3 day window in which you can take it for it to be effective, & it's more effective the sooner the woman takes it.
It works by delaying the woman's ovulation. This gives time for the sperm to leave the woman's body. Some people think that Plan B works in additional ways, but this is not claimed by the Manufacturer (you can go to the Plan B website).
Taking a second dose of Plan B has been shown to be no more effective than taking one. It will just mess up the woman's body (hormonally) even more than one dose can.
It's possible that after one dose your partner will get lots of hormonal symptoms, such as those she'd get with a period or pregnancy. She may bleed within a week of taking the Drug, but not always.
Her period is possible going to be late by a week or two. You can do a pregnancy test if it doesn't start on time, to ensure it is just the Plan B.
If you want another method of emergency contraception, as a double precaution, your partner can have an IUD/Coil fitted by a doctor within 5 days of the unprotected sex. It can also remain in place as regular contraception.
