Nam sodales mi vitae dolor ullamcorper et vulputate enim accumsan. Morbi orci magna, tincidunt vitae molestie nec, molestie at mi. Nulla nulla lorem, suscipit in posuere in, interdum non magna.

I had intercourse but the condom slipped off when he pulled out. I am on birth control and I don’t think any got inside me. But I took the 1st emergency contraceptive pill no later than 5 hours after intercourse but I took the 2nd pill 17 hours later. Is it still effective? Will I become pregnant?

The two pill version of Plan B instructs the user to take 1 pill within 72 hours of unprotected sex and the second pill 12 hours later. Since both pills are identical (levonorgestrel 0.75 mg), it doesn’t matter which one you take first. If you took the second pill 17 hours after the first pill, it should still be effective. In addition, you state that you are on birth control as well which, if taken correctly, is effective at preventing pregnancy.

If you don’t have any withdrawal bleeding at the end of your birth control cycle, you should consider taking a pregnancy test.
