Emergency contraceptive

Can you masturbate right after you take a plan b?

There is no connection between masturbation and Plan B

The same day of my deposit shot I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend,the following day I drank essence of life to clean away the sperm that can be stored in my womb,does my body still have injection contained in it

If this was your first drop shot then you most likely were not protected against pregnancy . 

 If you have been getting regular depo shots and your shot was on time then you are protected against pregnany. 

Do not depend on essence of life to prevent pregnancy. 

I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend but he did not come inside me can I be pregnant

Yes, the pulling out method is not an effective method of birth control and you can get pregnant.   

You may want to use ECP , the emergency contraception pill to prevent pregnancy. 

Contact your primary care provider or Corner Health or see if you are eligible to get it directly from your pharmacy. 

The pill (plan B) is effective within 5 days of unprotected sex. The sooner it is taken the more effective it is at preventing unplanned pregnancy.  

I had sex we used a condom and he pulled out and I took a plan b. What are the chances of me getting pregnant? My period is supposed to come this week or the next.

In order for a pregnancy to happen a sperm needs to come in contact with an egg. 

You used multiple ways to prevent that, so there is very little chance you are pregnant. 

Please schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or at Corner Health Center to find a type of birth control that is right for you.

Corner Health Center is doing televisits and phone visits during the Covid Crisis.  

If he Precummed in me should I buy a plan b pill?

Yes.  The pill is efffective for 5 days following unprotected sex, though the effectiveness is less on day 5 

If i have unprotected sex and idk if he precummed in me but i do know he didnt cum in me and then i took a plan b (just in case he precum in me)48hours or maybe a couple hours less than that whats my risk of pregnancy

Research shows that if Plan B is taken 25-48 hours after sex, the effectiveness at preventing pregnancy is about  85 percent.  That means that if 100 people took the pill between 25 and 48 hours then approx 85 will not get pregnant and approx 15 will.  

Am I pregnant? Here’s a timeline of what I have been experiencing, I keep track of all this in my period tracking app. I don't take birth control, and I do not have symptoms of STDs. No burning, itching, or smells. We depend on the pull out method, I scheduled an appointment at the end of this week to wait it out..I just hope someone else can relate??? AUGUST 3rd- intimate (unprotected) AUGUST 4th- I took a plan B AUGUST 6th- intimate (unprotected) AUGUST 6th- that night after sex my period came on AUGUST 6th-11th- PERIOD AUGUST 12th- intimate (unprotected) AUGUST 15th- intimate (unprotected) AUGUST 17th- I woke up with pink blood spot, it then got darker during the day, it turned brown, now it is a red spot—literally. I panicked because I had period 5 days ago! I’ve been on google for hours... We were probably intimate between the 12th and 15th...I'm just anxious, it will be my first pregnancy. I am 20 years old so I am having mixed emotions....any clue on what I should do?

In order for a pregnancy to occur a sperm needs to come in contact with an egg.  It is difficult to know when you ovulate (release an egg) unless you are tracking it.  Most women ovulate sometime between days 11 and 17.  (Day 1 is the first day of your period).

When you take Plan B it can adjust your hormone schedule and make your periods irregular. 

So it is difficult to know why you have had irregular spotting.

Come in for your scheduled appointment. 

Also you may want to discuss reliable methods of birth control including the LARC's (Long-Acting Reversable Contraceptives) to prevent this anxiety in the future. 

I took two emergency contraceptive pills, one on the 12th and another one on 13th of May and today is the 20th. I still haven't got a period but I feel a little bit cramp there and hurt on breasts. When will my period come? Is it same for 7 days after emergency as it taken 1 emergency as well?

The question is when was your last period?  Using emergency contraception can change your cycle.  If your period is 2 weeks late then you should make an appointment  for a pregnancy test.
