Customer Question

I had sex with a friend of mine, it was unprotected and I ejaculated inside of her, not worried about STDs, we both have talked and discussed the last time we were tested. I am worried about her being pregnant tho. She told me shes on birth control but doesn't take them "religiously" and she took Plan B the day after. I have been stressing over this and reading a lot of information online, which is making it worse, so I decided to come here for your input.

I think pregnancy is highly unlikely, although it depends partly on how many days of birth control pills she has missed recently.

Plan B will prevent more than 90% of pregnancies that would otherwise have occurred. Since it's probably unlikely that a pregnancy would have occurred anyway, I don't think you have to worry.

If she missed 2-3 days of her pills in a row, that would increase the chance that she could get pregnant, but the Plan B would still prevent most pregnancies. Best wishes.

even if she missed 2-3 days of pills, Plan B would still help prevent most pregnancies? I know if she stopped taking the pills her body would go into ovulation, is there a set time period of when that would happen? Also would Plan B still work at that point?

Plan B doesn't work as well if ovulation has already occurred. However, missing 2-3 days, ovulation isn't likely, but is possible.
