Plan B One Step will be effective in this case?

User Profile
Today is my girlfriends last day of ovulation according to her calendar. My girlfriend and I had sex and the condom broke without us knowing. We then rushed to CVS and got Plan B One Step. It was about 30 minutes - 1 hour after it happened. Plus I was kind of pulling out when I started to ejaculate. How effective do you believe Plan B One Step will be in this case? Please just assure me that we\'re fine.. We are both so nervous..

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
If semen or pre-cum has come in contact with vagina, chances of pregnancy are possible especially if she was during her fertile days or close to her ovulation time at the time of your sexual contact/intercourse (she will be closer to ovulation time after finishing with her periods). The ECP taken should help in preventing pregnancy if she has taken it within 48 hours of unprotected intercourse (provided you were not sexually active after she has taken ECP). Wait and watch for her periods that may be delayed due to ECP use. Look out for development of any new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. She should visit her doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation and assistance if she does not get her periods within 10 days of expected period dates, or if she gets abnormal bleeding. If pregnancy gets ruled out and if you are not ready for pregnancy, but intend to remain sexually active, you should consider getting her started on suitable regular birth control measures to be protected (after her periods). She should be regular with birth control use as instructed. Avoid having unprotected sexual contact if you are not ready for pregnancy.
Take care.
