I had sex Sunday night and it went in me. I took the plan B pill about 16-17 hours later bc I had work. Should I be stressing? The pill I took is called take action.
16-17 hours is within time limits. Of course, the sooner the better but it is still within time limits. Emergency contraception is not as effective as routine birth control. It has anywhere from 80% to 95% chance of preventing pregnancy. Routine birth control like birth control pills, is about 98-99.9% effective.
