Should I take Plan B Again?

I had unprotected sex then took the morning after pill 2 days later. The day after taking the pill the condom broke. I was wondering, if the pill prevents the onset of ovulation does that mean it will help prevent pregnancy in this second incident too? Or should i take the pill again ?

Hi Anon,
Are condoms the only form of birth control that you and your partner are using? Is there a reason why you are not using a form of birth control such as oral contraception?
According to the website for Plan B One Step, an emergency contraceptive that prevents pregnancy after birth control failure or unprotected sex.
Keep in mind, Plan B One-Step™ is less likely to work if:
* You have unprotected sex, or contraceptive failure again in the same menstrual cycle after taking Plan B One-Step
I don't think it prevents ovulation and I don't know if it is safe for you to repeat a dose so soon after the first pill. Please call your doctor or health care provider for more definitive advice.
