Hey, I'm a new member I've never done this before I'm just looking for advice outside of my family. I had unprotected sex with a guy I was seeing, he was pulling out for about two months. Last time we had unprotected sex was November 5th, then my period came November 8th for two days which is not normal then we also had sex November 14th but we did use a condom and that was the last time we had sex. following the next week I got back with my ex the father of my kids November 19th we had unprotected sex late that night around 8-9 pm . I think that was the first day of me ovulating, we also had sex November 20th and November 21st I decided to take the plan b pill that evening my period was supposed to come December and it came December 8th for only one day and I realized I was pregnant. now my question is Could the father of my child be the guy I was seeing in the beginning or could it be my ex boyfriend did the plan b pill work or it didn't. I know they say that the plan b pill works within 72 hours I'm open to advice its very confusing...

Hello and thank you for choosing EmpowHer,
I'd love to give you some input on the situation.
Since your period was only 2 days in November, this is a huge indicator that you were already pregnant by the time you took the Plan B in December. If you were not pregnant in December 21st when you took the pill, then the pill would have effectively prevented pregnancy from occurring. But since you were already pregnant since November 5th (most likely), the Plan B was did not make a difference.
I hope that helps. Let us know if you have any more questions.

Thank you for your input it really helps.. my other question would be how effective would the plan b pill work if over weight? At the time I took the pill I was 270lbs. I have researched it on the internet and some say is less effective if you're over 195 pounds some say it still works as effective. what would be your input on that? Thank you...

Being overweight can potentially cause the body not to respond to the hormones in the pill the same as if you had an average body weight. However, this depends entirely on your hormonal, and reproductive health. It is too general a statement to say that if you're overweight the pill won't work. There are too many factors to consider. I would suggest not reading into that too much, and assume that the pill worked the same for you as it would for anyone else.
