How long does the morning after pill cover you for?

  1. Maria143

    I had sex with my boyfriend the night yesterday. And then this morning at around 8:30am But i took morning after pill. Not the generic. But the brand name Plan B. And then had sex again after an hour at around 9:30 am he didn’t ejaculate inside. He did withdraw for all the sex we had the night and this morning. Will i still get pregnant? And will that pill still work? I was worried since we had sex after the pill and i know he didn’t ejaculate inside.

  2. Dear Maria loncheta,

    It is comm belief that, once taken, the morning-after pill allows you to continue having unprotected intercourse for some time. But this is a misconception. You should know that the effects of the morning-after pill last around 11 to 15 hours. After 18 hours, you body will have eliminated the pill and you will be no longer protected against an unwanted pregnancy.

    You say that you used the pull-out or withdrawal method, which is totally unadvisable due to the high number of risks associated. In any case, the chances for the pill to fail are low, so in principle there’s no reason for you to be concerned. It’s likely, however, that you experience a delay in your next period due to the effects of the pill.
