    Lightbulb I took Plan B, but i didn't exactly take it RIGHT. HELP!

    okay so my boyfriend and i had a slip up i guess you could say ( i dont really like that term ), i'm not on birth control but were normally way more careful , anywho.. i just got off my aunt flow like 2 days before we did it.. and he had completely got off in me ( TMI, sorry ) .. soo we decided to get the plan b one step pill.. well i'm terrrrrible at swallowing a pill soo we cut it in half .. well while doing so.. we dropped and lost a half... i took the other half tho that we did have.... how effective.. if any at all do you think this would be and what do you think my chances are of getting pregnant ?


    p.s. i took it within like 16/17 hours after having intercourse !

    I'm no expert but I'd say ur chances are pretty good that the plan b was useless. I'd have gone back and bought it again.

    I'm not sure how effective it would have been. But if you had just gotten off your period just 2 days before, you were not likely ovulating. So your chance of pregnancy should be slim.

    I would agree that likely right now you would not be ovulating, but that's a risk you have to be comfortable with taking... you can't be 100% sure you weren't ovulating, and taking only half of the pill is pretty risky! To be on the safe side, I would go back to the pharmacy and explain what happened, see what they recommend.
