** Can I still get pregnant after taking PlanB?**
An_243818 posted:
I had sex with my man before and after taking PlanB.. I got nausea a day after sex and a light period a couple of days after the unprotected sex.. Can I be pregnant? Can people get pregnant after taking PlanB whether they had sex or not..?? Whats the chances that a woman does get pregnant after taking PlanB? What are the side effects of PlanB? What are the symptoms of being pregnant?

Hi Anon,

Deep breath. The only way to know if you are pregnant is with a pregnancy test. Plan B is not 100% but if taken as per the directions then it works as well as it can.
If you are still concerned take a pregnancy test.

Life is too short, so kiss slowly, laugh insanely, love truly and forgive quickly.

To add to what Chrissy said, Plan B protects you against pregnancy from sex that has already happened NOT from sex you have after taking it.

Please consider getting on regular birth control as Plan B is nowhere near as effective as it is.
There's nothing inherently dirty about sex, but if you try real hard and use your imagination you can overcome that.
