Comment:
Took it slightly before 24 hours after brief contact, probably pre-ejaculatory but not full on ejaculatory. Still, very stupid and just as terrified. Took the pill, period came six days later. Took pregnancy test, came out negative. Period came for second time, officially, not pregnant. Side note: NextChoice worked just as well after a very scary life-threatening situation.

My boyfriend and I had unprotected sex because the condom really irritated me and although he pulled out, I was still paranoid about anything lingering in there, you know? So after scrummaging money together I was about to take Plan B about 24 hours after. It's a week later exactly and I got my period (which is odd because I wasn't due to get it until 2 weeks later) but who cares? i'm ... Show Full Comment

The same day-ish, we had intercourse that morning. So it might've been ten to twenty hours at the most, I got the pill and I took it. Every seemed sort of fine, when all of a sudden a week later ( ... Show Full Comment

Got the Plan B less than 24 hours after having unprotected sex. Look for an online coupon, I found one for $10 off, came out to $42 (I would have bought a generic brand but that was all sold out, lots of "oopsies" the night before I guess). I had had just ended my period about 4 days prior to having unprotected sex I don't know if I was fertile but I wasn't taking any chances. I ... Show Full Comment
