... within 24hours but since sperm can live inside me for a few days would my sugar pills protect me still or should i keep taking plan B for a few days?? I really dont want to get pregnant
I think you are confused on what your birth control pills and plan b actually do. As long as you had been taking your birth control pill correctly you were protected and did not need to take a plan B pill. All plan B does is delay ovulation and on hormonal birth control you don't ovulate. You took a huge dose of hormones by taking the plan B when you didn't need to. Do not take anymore! The plan B will mess up your cycle you could have bleeding when it's not expected and experience all sorts of other side effects such as a late period, cramps, sore breasts. Just keep taking your birth control pills no matter what. And no more plan B pills!
You don't ovulate on the pill, so plan B does nothing but screw up your cycle. I wish you girls would understand what your pills do. You are protected all the time, not just when you are taking active pills.
