I had sex and the condom ripped. My bf realized that fact and pulled out. He did not ejaculate, but is unsure if there was any pre-cum. Immidiately I went to the bathroom to pee then washed the inside of my vigina with soap. We went to the local drug store and bought 'Plan B' conception pill and I took one; this was three hours after the sex. We thought the two pills was supposed to be taken at the same time, I took the second one an hour after the first. Then later in the afternoon I found on the official website of 'Plan B' that the second pill was to be taken 12 hours after the first. Am i at risk for pregnancy because i took second pill too early??

my period's are irregular(on average they are 35days long) and I'm currently on the 24th day of my cycle.

Please please help! [Frown]

The reason Plan B pills can be taken 12 hours apart is because some women become nauseous from such a high dose of hormones if they're taken together. However, if you took them together and did not have any problems with vomiting, your pill should be just as effective as if it was taken 12 hours later.

(Just to add to StrangePudding's wonderful advice, washing your vagina out with soap is not going to do squat to prevent pregnancy, and can actually cause irritation and infection. Not something you want to deal with.)

Just for future don't want to ever try to wash out the inside of your vagina with anything. The vagina maintains a very specific balance and putting something like soap in there is not going to be good for you. It could encourage imbalances or infections. In terms of preventing pregnancy, it does absolutely nothing.

question: doesn't soap kill sperms if there was any around? (and thank you for the advice, I'm keeping in mind not to do that again)

On one's hands, sure, but not inside the vagina. Sperm travel much too fast inside the vagina for soap to have any impact, other than potentially knocking the vaginal environment out of balance and giving a woman a case of BV.
