Plan b

Patient: If you take plan b and then 2 hrs later have sex can you still get preganat?

 

 

Doctor: I understand your doubt about Plan B. After 2 hours of taking the pill, there would be no effect of the pill yet and you could probably increase the chances of pregnancy if a sperm fertilizes an egg. I hope I could clear your doubt, I would suggest you to use barrier methods such as male or female condoms.

Guest: I took plan b 3 hrs after unprotected sex. I ovulated 2 days ago. Will the pill still work? If i had already ovulated, the pill cannot delay it. Please explain.
