in one of my last posts, i posted that i had unprotected sex with my boyfriend who came inside of me on accident. i had been on birth control for 9 days, so i took plan B just in case. i was wondering what my chance of being pregnant was......and right now, i have one more regular pill left before i start to take the placebo pills. the unprotected sex was 7 days ago tomorrow and i'm extremely scared to get a pregnancy test (even though it hasn't been long enough, has it?) because i'm so petrified it will be positive. Even if i hadn't had unprotected sex, i still would be too scared to take a test....is there anyone that can help me with this?

If you took plan B within 120 hours of your risk, the chances that you are pregnant are slim to none.

But if you are still worried, you can get an accurate result from a pregnancy test 10-14 days after your risk.

okay. yeah i took Plan B the very next day (pretty close to 22 hours after it happened) though i completely forgot to mention that I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend two days prior and he didnt ejaculate inside of me. (it was day 7 of me being on my birth control) and i hadn't read anything about birth control not being effective for some people until after the first 30 days or so. Still, when i took plan B it was before the Five days were up....so is there a big chance of me being pregnant? sorry if I post too many questions.

oh. i just remembered, i'm almost 100% i had already ovulated this month (because i had minor cramping for a day about mid-cycle like i usually do) plus i was supposed to get my period before i started taking birth control (and had an immediate-start for my birth control). my body was up and ready to have a period until i took birth control, which pushed back my period. (i dont know if this helps any)

Well the answer is still pretty much the same.

As Joey already stated EC is effective up to 120 hours after your risk so if you took it in that time range, you're fine and your risk of pregnancy is slim to none. EC is pretty effective. Also, as Joey already said, you can take a pregnancy test once it's been 10-14 days after your risk.

You've had a STIs risk from that unprotected sex as well so if you and your partner haven't both been tested twice 6 months apart before you had that risk or haven't both remain monogamous since have, this might be a good idea to schedule an appointment to get tested.

Scared, I don't actually see this as related to this topic, about birth control pills.

And I did tell you, in a previous thread of yours, the answer to that question, very clearly. So, please do us a favor and have a look at your previous questions and our answers, okay? We serve a lot of people in a day, and we do so for free, so one important ways users can help us is to be sure to pay attention to the answers we give and not keep asking the same question. If an answer is unclear, you can ask us to explain in a different way in your same thread.

Too, you can also call the doctor/clinic who IS getting paid and who is available for you when it comes to these questions, if our answers don't suffice, or you want a second opinion. Thanks!

(While we prefer if our users who have already started a thread also reply in their own threads if they wish to supply additional information, we do suggest starting a thread of your own, for your own questions, so as to not get overlooked.)

Where did you get your Implanon inserted? Did you talk to your doctor about how the implant works and when it will be effective? Because really, that's who you should ask. That said, the implant is a hormonal method of birth control and it can take the body a while to get used to the new hormones, so we suggest using condoms as a back-up for the first cycle on a new method of hormonal bc.

[ETA: Gah. I'm so slow. Heather beat me to it.]
