Question: My girlfriend and I have sex the other night and we were unprotected at first and didn't last No more than a minute. I can tell when I evaluated and she can tell also when I wear a condom and we both think I didn't ejaculate in her but when I pulled out to put a condom on, within seconds I was flabby and that scares us, I did cum a hour beforehand (not in her) and didn't go to the bath room afterwards. After I got flabby I got in my car and bought a plan b pill and she took it within the hour after intercourse, after all things together, what is the chance she will become pregnant. She has very irregular cycles so she has No idea when she ovulates.

Brief Answer:
Rare chances of pregnancy.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
In your case the chances of pregnancy are rare as there was no ejaculation inside and she has taken the I-pill within an hour. The chances of pregnancy in this way are less than 2%. It is best to wait for her next periods. The periods can be delayed by a few days due to the side effect of the pill. Please do not worry.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.

How long does the plan b pill work for, I hear 3 days and 5 days, I know sperm can live for up to 5 days so if the pill wears off after 3 what do we need to do about the remaining days while the sperm Still lives

Brief Answer:
No need to take anything.

Detailed Answer:
Hello.
Thanks for writing again.
The pill will stop or delay the ovulation. The life span of sperm does not affect the efficacy of the pill. There is no need to take anything extra for the rest of 2 days. It works for unprotected intercourse within last 72 hours.
Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.

I had unprotected intercourse with my boyfriend on May 18, '13 (May 10 - start of my period) which is may last day of regular menstruation. No ejaculation happened inside me and my bf confirmed that. I'm getting paranoid cause I'm not yet ready to get pregnant so i researched some contraceptives and Nordette is the only available here in our country. So I took nordette 21(4 pills) and another 4 pills after 12 hrs, within 72 hrs after our intercourse. After 4-5 days (May 24), I got a withdrawal bleeding which happened for 4 days. I haven't got my period yet (June 9 or 10, '13) and I'm two weeks delay now. I haven't take a PT yet. Is there a chance that I'm pregnant? How long does Nordette can delay a period? Please reply to my question 'coz it will really help me to stay calm and not to worry. Thank you.

Hi, I m on birth control and I had unprotected sex two days ago. I have missed one (two at the most) days, but remembered immediately and took it. The pill I am on allows you to do this and take your next pill as you normally would without having to use backup birth control. I am now having a brown discharge and would like to know what you think this means and if I should take the morning after pill. Thanks.
