My Partner Took The Plan B Pill. How Effective Are
Its very effective
Hello and welcome to Ask A Doctor service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
Plan B taken within 72 hrs is very effective. Many studies have been done. FDA states its efficacy to prevent pregnancy as high as 80 to 85 %.
Hope this helps. Let me know if I can assist you further.
In that case its protection is low.
If egg has already released then its not very protective. In such a case inserting a copper-IUD or maybe medical termination of pregnancy are other options.
But I don't think it will be needed.
Well I will not worry much about it
I think its futile to worry at this point. We have already done the best to prevent pregnancy. The cervical mucous will become thicker and prevent entry of sperms. At most, you can ask your gynecologist to insert a copper-intrauterine device.
Even if pregnancy happens, there are other options.
Hope this helps.
