so. It turns out I've been actively taking my birth control pills for about a week or so (Sun-Sat). I'm a very paranoid person in general and have dumb questions on if i should ever need plan B this early on? You see, my Bf and I had anal sex yesterday and he came inside. (very embarrassing) though, the thing that kinda concerns me is could i get pregnant from it coming out (you know with my anus being so near my vagina. Also i was laying on my back the entire time so i don't think it should have traveled to my vagina imo)? After the act i actually decided to try and take/push out all of the cm and I'm not super sure if all of it came out (i think most of it did?? haha.) I'm not sure if I should be worried about this since I'm on the pill and it's unlikely i can get pregnant from this but I'm pretty inexperienced in sex agggh. I've been a bit paranoid that during my sleep it could have spilled out into my vagina. BUT I highly doubt it because i got most of it out i think but it still worries me. So, should i take plan B for a little situation like this or should i be ok?

Hi, Anon.

Thank you for your post.

You can't get pregnant from anal sex. It's highly unlikely any semen could travel down and enter your vaginal canal. Even so, you are on birth control. Whether or not to take Plan B is up to you.
