Are we ok? Shouldn't she have ovulated already?

User Profile
Me and my girlfriend had sex today. We used a condom but it broke. I ejaculated in her. As soon as it happened I went to the pharmacy and bought her Plan B One Step. She took it. She last had her period around Feb. 13th-15th. Are we ok? Shouldn't she have ovulated already?

Welcome to e health forum.

Considering her last LMP was around 13-15th of February, and her cycles are regular (say 28 day cycle), her period should be due anytime after 12 th March.

Ovulation and hence risk of conception is high when you have unprotected intercourse between the 12th to 16th day of the menstrual cycle. Sex outside this period is safe and does not result in pregnancy.

Based on your history, you had sex in this safe period and hence there is no risk of pregnancy.

But since she has taken the plan-B, at the time when her periods were due, she might have slight change in her cycles (it may be delayed slightly) or she may bleed abnormally (change of color or amount of bleeding).

This would be normal side effect and there would be no need for you to be worried, thinking this could be due to possible pregnancy.

But for the next time, please remember to practice safe sex and consult your doctor for possible prescription of regular birth control pills.

I hope this helps.
