Hi, I forgot to take my second plan B pill, now it's been three days after I took my first pill.

Should I take the second pill now??

Am I going to get pregnant?! I'm so stress out because of this!!!! Please help!!!:(

Dear Francesxu,

Plan B loses it's effectiveness after 72 hours. If you would like to take your second pill now, you can. However, be aware that it will not be as effective as if you had taken it correctly. 

If your next period is late by more than one week, please take a pregnancy test.

Good Luck,
