Q. Hello, I took the plan B pill at 8:00pm, from unprotected sex 2 days prior – I understand 24-72 hours is the best time to take it, however I ended up having unprotected sex at 10:00pm, 2 hours after I took the pill, do you think it would be necessary to take another one or will this pill be enough, I am on no other birth control but I don’t want to end up getting sick from taking 2 pills in 24 hours. I know everyone is different but just your best advice would be great! Thank you!
A. If it is within 2 hours that would not be necessary . If you do not want to be pregnant , contact your primary care provider or Corner Health Center to find the type of birth control that is right for you.
