I took Plan B during my ovulation

I am going to be very specific about my story so bare with me guys. So I had my period from May 15-20 and on May 29 the guy i'm seeing and I had sex and he came inside me by accident.. And I am not on any birth control. He bought the plan b for me and i took it right away within 24 hrs. I checked my menstrual cycle app and it says that on the 29 it was my ovulation day. I am really paranoid right now. Anyways, last week i had light cramps for 3 days. It comes and goes and this week or starting today my breasts have been sore and my boobs are usually sore a week before my period arrives. I am guessing this is one of the side effects of the plan b but i am not sure yet. I am going take the pregnancy test on june 13 to make sure i am not pregnant. Can someone please give me an advice or reassure me that i am not because i am so paranoid. background story, when i was with my x last year i took the plan many times because i wasn't on birth control. He didn't cm inside me but i am paranoid so i would take to make sure i won't get pregnant. We used condom before but after awhile we stopped using it. The last time i took the plan b was around jan 2016 and i took the plan b again on may 29. I am afraid it won't be as effective because i've taken it so many times before :/ please help me.

Hello pmones00,

Welcome to the EmpowHER community. I am glad you reached out to us with your concern of possibly being pregnant.

Over use of any emergency contraceptive can make it less effective. This pill is intended as the name implies for use in an emergency situation, such as a broken condom. You should not be using it as birth control.

pmones00, if you are not ready to become pregnant but are sexually active, why not see a gynecologist and start using birth control on a regular basis? There are many options from pills to patches, IUD to injections.

Plan B prevents pregnancy by preventing ovulation. It is most effective when taken as soon as possible and within 72 hours of unprotected intercourse.

Wait to test. If you have not had any vaginal bleeding within three weeks of taking the pill, then test. For the most accurate result, test in the morning. Use the urine when you first get up.

pmomes00, please consider scheduling an appointment with a gynecologist. A physical exam, any necessary blood tests to check your hormone levels, and a prescription for birth control will help with your feelings of paranoia of becoming pregnant.
