Is pregnancy possible while on birth control pills?

I’m on the birth control pill however I hadn’t been taking it at close times last month so last weekend I had unprotected sex and took plan b the next morning. They told me to be abstinent for seven days even though I’m still on the pill or to make sure to used a condom. Yesterday was day 6 after taking the pill and I had sex last night but the condom broke. Should I be concerned and can I take plan b again once one week apart from the last time I took it?

I think you should consider properly using a contraceptive method and not using Plan B pills more than once a month.

If you don’t use estroprogestative contraceptives properly, you chances of being pregnant increase.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
