Me and my gf had protected sex yesterday and when i was pulling out after i cummed, it slipped of and was left inside her. We dont believe it came off before then. To be on the safe side, we bought plan b and she took it this morning. How much of a risk did we have?

Plan B or some birth control pills used specifically can reduce the risk of pregnancy by 75 - 89%: 7 out of every 8 women who would have become pregnant will not by using EC
(From Birth Control Bingo!, specifically Emergency Contraception (Plan B or the Morning-After-Pill).

The exact percentage depends on where in her cycle she was. She can take a pregnancy test 10-14 days after the risk to be sure. Or, if she misses a period - but know that taking EC can mess with your cycle quite a bit.

That actually indicates that her period is a bit irregular, not regular, since there aren't the same number of days in each month.

She should still take a pregnancy test 10-14 days after the risk just to be sure.
