Is pregnancy possible despite taking Plan-B after intercourse?

default
Posted on Mon, 11 May 2015
Question: Hello,
Today I had sex with my boyfriend, I am not currently on birth control because I've been dealing with slightly high testosterone levels, so my obgyn has recommended I stay off the pill. We used a condom, but it stayed inside me after he pulled out. Unfortunately, last Thursday we had unprotected sex but he pulled out before ejaculation, but I used Plan B the morning after to be safe. Right now, I am very worried and want to use Plan B again, but I am worried that it will negatively impact my body. What would you recommend?

Brief Answer:
Need to take Plan B.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thanks for your information.

According to your last period date, you involved in unprotected sex (including spillage of condom) during your fertile period in both occasions.

I suggest you to take Plan-B pill again to avoid unwanted pregnancy though frequent use of emergency pill is NOT recommended. There are no other options to prevent pregnancy in this case.

You will get withdrawal bleeding like period within 5-7 days or it may coincide with your regular period date. You should consult with your gynecologist for long term contraceptive method (like Depo shot or Norplant) or Combined hormonal pill (Cyproterone acetate and ethinyl estradiol) .

Hope, it helps for your information. Kindly, close the discussion if you don't have any other query. Good luck.
