I had protected sex with my bf and we used a condom. We both checked to make sure it was secure and that there was no leakage. All was well. However, I am a very parenoid individual so I took plan b 22 hours later. I'm also taking ovulation tests.

I wasn't ovulating at the time. However, on Monday, I tested with high fertility. And today on Wednesday I'm at peak fertility so I'm about to ovulate in the next 2-3 days. So I took another Plan b pill this morning at 11:30. I was just wondering what my chancestors are of conceiving which I'm doing everything I can to avoid. Granted I have not had sex or even seen my bf since Saturday. Any comments and suggestion's would be helpful. And I am not on a regularge birth control yet but am being put on it in my next appointment comin up this week.

Hello Anon

Thank you for writing!

You are really overdoing the birth control! Do you understand how it all works? There is no need to take EC once and definitely not twice, after protected sex. While it's good to be cautious, you are overdosing on hormones. Paranoia will not help you to avoid pregnancy, it will just disrupt your body.
There is no pregnancy risk, you need to trust condoms that are 98% + reliable and no risk at all with no tears or leaks.

Due to overdosing on hormones, you may have irregular bleeding or a late period. Stop taking anything (other than condoms) until you get on regular birth control. Read the paperwork that came with EC to learn more about it.
