My boyfriend and I had unprotected sex several times on May 19th sometime in between noon and 2pm. He claims he did not ejaculate in me but just to be sure because of the risk of pre-ejaculatory we talked and decided that we will be getting the morning after pill (plan B) Sunday morning. Will the pill be affective still by then? What are the chances of me being pregnant AFTER taking the pill?

I also have taken the Plan b once last month because of a condom mishap. Although I had no side effects and got my period on time which does mean I was safe from last time correct?

and I would like to know if because of the pill, would I have increased mood swings?

Hi Anonymous,

Plan B is effective when taken within 72 hours after unprotected sex. 

When used as directed, Plan B One-Step® is safe and effective. Side effects may include changes in your period, nausea, lower abdominal pain, fatigue, headache, dizziness, and breast tenderness. Some women may have changes in their period, a heavier or lighter next period, or a period that is early or late. If your period is more than a week late, you may be pregnant. If you have severe abdominal pain, you may have an ectopic pregnancy, and should get immediate medical attention.

Mood Swings are not listed as a side effect.


Hope this answers your questions,
