So me and my boyfriend had sex on monday april 8. The condom broke and he went fully inside. We got plan b one step 20 min after. Ive been feeling really nauseous and just kinda sickly. I ended my period on april 1 and typically have a 34 day cycle. I read that plan b doesn't work if ovulating. Im not sure if I was or not. Im really worried....

Hi Anon,

There's no way of knowing if you are pregnant.  A home pregnancy test or getting your period will be the only way to know for sure.

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  If you took your pills as instructed, your chances of pregnancy to occur are less.  Most women after taking an emergency pill will experience changes on their next period.  Such as a heavier or lighter, earlier or later period.  You will need to wait until your next period and if you feel concerned take a home pregnancy test.

Can you be a little more specfic? Like what are my chances of not getting pregnant? I've had some nausea. Could that be from the pill working?
