... is it a waste of money??
Hello, that is good to hear that you are protecting yourself against disease and using condoms. If it slipped off it happens however I believe that if you are having a normal full period you might be ok. The plan b makes your body have a menstruation and since you are already menstruating and shedding your uterine lining that's what menstruating is I don't think you should take the plan b it's been 4 days since you have been shedding your lining and as long as it's not a heavier than normal or less than your usual and normal period I think you are ok.
I would suggest that you do take Plan B if you want extra protection against pregnancy.
Most women Ovulate around day 14 of their cycle. Day 1 is the first day of your period.
Some are earlier, some later.
Sperm has been known to survive in a woman's body for up to 6 days. As you are possibly around the end of your period, this is a possibility. Especially if you are a woman who ovulates slightly earlier. The Plan B will hopefully delay your ovulation.
It just depends on how much you want to ensure against pregnancy, really.
A tip - When the condom is about to be put on his penis, hold the tip. This prevents air getting trapped inside the condom, as you roll it down. If air gets trapped inside, it may lead to the condom bursting during intercourse.
Always hold the base of the condom on the penis as he withdraws. This prevents it accidentally slipping off inside of you.
