I know the plan b pill is effective, and I've taken it several times in the past few months, ( about 7 times and I know I'm not supposed to because it damages and messes with your cycles) but I recently got into panic mode because I had an incident, even though it was protected sex, I still don't know if I should buy it just to be on the safe side . Me and my bf had sex yesterday 3 times with a condom. The first time it was normal sex. The second also, the third time we were going at it, but the condom got dry so we switched it out for another one. As soon as he was putting on the condom he put it on backwards, but only the tip of the penis touched it and put it on correctly..I got scared but continued anyways..and also I saw some type of gunk on his leg before we did it the last time. I don't know if it was the lube or him or me, but I started to panic. Could I be pregnant? Should I take the plan b pill just in case? How can the plan b pill still affect me now? Could I probably be safe since I've taken it so many times already?

Seven times in a few months is a lot of use of Plan B, especially for your wallet. It also isn't as effective as other methods, so how about we talk about other methods for you which are more effective, less costly and have less of an impact on your body?
Are you saying, with the condom, that with one of the times it was put on backwards, then instead of tossing that one and taking out a new one, your partner flipped that one over and put it on? If so, then no, that's not proper use of a condom and that condom may have been less effective.
As well, if you're asking if Plan B gives you protection from pregnancy when you're not actually taking it, no, it does not.
