Pregnancy & Plan B & masturabation


Q: I had unprotected sex and made him pull out but he reentered 30 minutes later, I took plan b the next morning then took care of my own needs later that evening. Could I get pregnant if he left anything behind? Bad night and not ready to be a mom, please help

Symptoms:  Period in generally irregular however I'm still not on it.

A:   Hello,
Thanks for asking the health query at ATD.
I have gone through your history and understand your concerns.
The chances of pregnancy are very low in your case as you had plan-b on time.
Plan-b is 96% effective in your case (which is almost 100%).
So do not take any stress and wait and watch for the menses.
Hopefully found useful.
Good luck.

Patient: So masturbating hours after plan b won't increase my chances? Thank you. Makes me feel a little better. Just very nervous. My BF turned out not to be the man I would want to have a child with.
Doctor: Hello dear,
Masturbation will not cause pregnancy but sexual intercourse after taking plan-b may cause pregnancy.
Hope found useful.
Good luck.
