I just had the Skyla put in had sex an hour later and he came inside me. I know it's not effective yet. Should I take Plan B or will it mess stuff up?
You're going to have to use one of the 3 methods of emergency contraception, if you want to try to avoid pregnancy.
Do you know if you're around the time of your ovulation?
If so, Plan B can't help & you'd need either the other emergency pill called Ulipristal Acetate or to have an IUD fitted by a doctor. Either of those things can be effective if done within 5 days/120 hours of the unprotected sex. Whereas you only have 3 days/72 hrs to use Plan B.
Both pills need to be used as soon as possible, as they become less likely to be effective, the longer you wait.
Emergency contraception isn't as effective as regular hormonal birth control. It's simply worth a try in an emergency. Better than leaving it to chance.
If you use the Ulipristal Acetate, you'll need back up barrier method birth control for the month.
