What is dosage of birth control pills after unprotected intercourse?

I am taking POPs and I know you can t be more than 3 hours late. I take my pill everyday at 11pm. Yesterday, Friday, I had unprotected sex at around 10 am. He did not ejaculate inside but some got on my thighs, not sure how close to my vagina, and we had sex again about 20 minutes later. Friday night I took my pill almost exactly 3 hours late, around 1:58am this morning. Do I need to take plan B? I know it says you need backup for the next 48 hours but I had sex before being late.

Hello dear
Understand your concern
Do not worry.
According to your questions, you are on the regular birth control pill.
As you took just after 3 hour delay from your routine, this not affect the contraception effect.
If you are on the regular birth control pill then no matter your partner ejaculated in or out the vagina, you are fully protective.
Birth control pill is very effective in preventing the pregnancy around 99 percent.
So no need of Plan B pill.
Dose of birth control pill to prevent the pregnancy as emergency contraception: 4 tablet as early as possible or with in 72 hour after sex and another 4 tablet after 12 hours.
But as you are on regular birth contraceptive pill, no need of above doe, just take your regular pill.
Hope this may help you
Best regards
Dr. Sagar
