I first took plan a month and a half ago. Had to take it

Customer Question

I first took plan b a month and a half ago. Had to take it again 3weeks after that. Got my period yesterday and had unprotected sex. I'm wondering if I should even take it again. Is my cycle so messed up that risk of pregnancy is low anyway? Is the plan b still "in my system" and therefore risk of pregnancy is very low? I know this is a horrible situation but now I'm just wondering what I should do, in terms of taking or not taking plan b..again? I dont want to put myself in more danger by adding more hormones to my body. But I of course don't want an unplanned pregnancy. Please help

To prevent pregnancy you need to take it again
So that is what should be done.
I would also see a doctor in person for this given the irregular periods
You need to start thinking about being more careful. Use condoms or get on some from of contraception regularly.

Am I jeopardizing my health in any way by taking it so often in a short amount of time?
