Plan b one step 6 days after

Patient

Q: I had unprotected sex 6 days ago (Tuesday around 3:45pm) and I just took plan b one step. Will it still be effective?

Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thanks for the query
Plan B is only effective when taken within 72 hours of the last sexual intercourse, the efficacy comes down further and pregnancy chances increase. In your case, it has been 6 days, hence it will not prevent a pregnancy.Kindly do a pregnancy test in case you miss the next cycle and see a gynecologist for further help.Kindly do not attempt termination on your own as it has untoward complications
Hope this helped
Regards
