“My boyfriend and I had unprotected sex the day after my period ended. I am on birth control and take my pills regularly. This month, I started my period a few days before I was supposed to and I am still on the white pill, which means it is still active. He came inside of me and I was wondering if I should get plan b? What are my chances of getting pregnant?”
A: If you are taking your birth control pills regularly and at the same time every day, your chances of getting pregnant are small. If you missed a pill or did not take it around the same time every day and had unprotected sex, plan B can be used as an emergency contraceptive. Plan B is most effective if taken up to 72 hours (3 days) after unprotected sex, but works better when taken as soon as possible. If you are still concerned that you might be pregnant, you can make an appointment at Family Planning at 440-352-0608 for a pregnancy test.
