I took a Plan B two days before I had

Patient: I took a Plan B two days before I had sex ,that still works?

 

 

Doctor: Hello,Thanks for the query to ATD,The plan-b which is an emergency contraceptive pill, ideally works when taken within 72 hrs of last intercourse. So if you have taken it 2 days prior of intercourse, it should still be effective in preventing a conception and you should expect a withdrawal bleed in next 5-6 days.I hope I have answered your query in detail,Regards
