hi my boyfriend and I had unprotected sex Saturday morning between 5-6am he pulled out and he's more than certain he didn't ejaculate in me. however I am extremely terrified because after the fact I found out I was ovulating the day of. I've been reading all types of articles stating how thse emergency pills aren't as effective during ovulation. it is now Tuesday night and I feel very mild cramps in my lower stomach. it doesn't hurt at all but I can definitely feel something. I'm not really discharging & if info it's a little bit and it's pretty thin. I haven't yet experience nausea or headaches or spotting which is why I am even more scared. my last period started July 27 and I know I shouldn't be expecting my next one soon. I am hoping it comes earlier than late if it comes at all. I just would really appreciate facts about whether this pill is going to work since I took it about 28-30 hours after the sex and I was ovulating. someone help me please! I am desperate and begging!

Hello Anonymous,

Thank you for posting. I realize desperation is setting in but unfortunately, there is nothing that you can do at this point but wait for your period. Even though your next one isn't due until the end of august, you may have a change in your period due to the Plan B you took. 

If your period is more than one week late, please take a pregnancy test. 

Good Luck,
