I take birth control almost religiously however I accidentally missed almost 4 pills in a row at the beginning of the month of pills. Last night I had unprotected sex (I had taken bc that morning and hadn't missed since the 4 I missed the beginning of the month) and my boyfriend came inside me. Our drugstores were closed so I had to wait until this morning to go buy Plan B but took my bc on my way out this morning out of routine. Is taking Plan B ineffective because I already took my BC after having sex? What is the percentage of plan B's effectiveness at this point?
Plan b is most effective No it will be work as long as its taken within 72 hrs, and the sooner the better. Stay in your pill schedule too. What pill are you on? If its the standard ones you have to take 21 pills before you take the placebos. You're probably ok with this incident if you took 7 active pills before you had sex.
