OKAY, so my last period was november 6th to nomvember 11th. according to my period log, i was fertile from the 12-24 and i ovulated on the 20th. on that saturday, 24th, i had sex, and the condom broke...the male claims he didnt finish and he stopped when it broke. but males lie, and the next day i took next step. first pill at like 3 and the second pill at 1:30 am. only thing is, this is my first time taking it. first time was in march, second in july, third in september and then now. will it still work? and i have been begging my parents to let me get on birth control but they wont allow me. how great are my chances? please help..

HI curiousgeorgex3,

Emergency contraception doesn't decrease in effectiveness the more often it's taken. So, it has just as much of a chance of working as it did the first time you took it.

This article has information on success rates for emergency contraception:

Emergency Contraception (Plan B or the Morning-After-Pill)

It's always a good idea to take a pregnancy test after taking emergency contraception to ensure that it did do what you wanted it to. Pregnancy tests are accurate 14 or more days after a pregnancy risk, or when a period is late.

Know too that emergency contraception can throw off the menstrual cycles for a few months after it is taken, so you may get your period sooner or later than expected.

There's really no way to predict what your chances are of being pregnant.

Only a test can say whether you are or aren't. It's too soon to test right now, though.

You mentioned above that your parents are resistant to you gettin gbirth control pills or other methods your doctor would need to prescribe. It sounds as if you've had to take emergency contraception a lot. Has this been because the condom has broken other times? Do you want to talk about what your birth control options could be?

I also just want to add a quick note about something else in the first post of this thread. You mentioned that males lie. We work very hard here at Scarleteen to make this a safe space for everyone, and this includes avoiding blanket negative or derogatory statements about any group of people as a whole.


So, we ask people not to make sweeping generalizations like that, or, if they really feel the need to do so, to word such statements in terms of their own experience. So, it may very well be that you've experienced that males lie, but not all of us have, so that statement is necessarily more about your own experience than a statement of fact. See what I mean?

So, again, just a reminder that all sorts of people are reading these forums and we need them to be a safe spot for everyone.

[Just realized I read the "they" who are resistant to birth control as guys, not the parents. My bad! Still, I'd say the following applies...]

curiousgeorge--

If you still don't trust someone's intentions/words, I think you might want to reconsider what you're going to do with them, as sex is one of those things where one little lie can make a whole lot of trouble. (Granted, as Robin said, not all guys lie when it comes to sex. In fact, I'd bet money that most of them don't!)

So, if you don't trust what a partner is saying, then you are within your rights to (and probably should) tell them, "I'm not going to do this with you."
