So, I am very furious and feel as if plan B "mis markets" the true effectiveness of their birth control. They say that only 1 in 100 women will get pregnant on plan b if taken within 72 hours.
Based on their marketing scheme, one assumes that if they have sex on any one day during the middle of their menstrual cycle, the chance of getting pregnant is 1 in 100. WRONG. So if you have sex during ovulation, you assume you are generally ok. right? WRONG
There is something they do NOT tell you, and I believe they do not tell you because it would prevent consumers from buying their product.
It is NOT effective if you have sex within the 12-24 hour window of ovulation.
me and my ex had break-up sex, I busted inside her (stupid i know, the ONLY time i've ever done that).
She took plan B immediately afterwards, as we were both terrified. I watched her take it and waited three hours with her to see if she puked it up. We took the second dose two. We were told to rest easy, as the chance of her being pregnant was less than 1 out of 100 (since we took it right away). We were considering taking another form of birth control called "ELLA" that also prevents implantation, HAD WE KNOWN that plan B does not work on the day of ovulation.
2 weeks later - positive pregnancy result. We read the MD information on Plan B and in turns out it is NOT effective on the day of ovulation (for example if you have unprotected sex within 12-24 hours if her releasing her egg). It prevents ovulation and in only rare cases prevents implantation.
if we had KNOWN this, we would have taken another form of birth control to prevent the implantation.
in b4 "its all ur fault for busting inside"
in b4 "she trapped you"

I knew a dude who use to bust in this chick all the time who wasn't on any birth control, and she never got pregnant.

However, it's good to know the details of how Plan B works. For that, I'm sure we're all grateful we learned something today. Thanks for that.
Good luck (I mean it) with your future OP."The Way Out Is Through"

I have been saying this literally for years. Did anybody listen? Of course not!
There is no drug that can prevent implantation of a fertilized egg. You can use Mifeprex to terminate a pregnancy after implantation has occurred, and that sounds like the best choice for you in this case. Ella, IUDs and a few other forms of birth control are speculated to prevent implantation, but that is not proven.
Honestly I'd bet the reason why Plan B marketing doesn't come right out and talk about the difference between stopping ovulation and implantation is that most people don't care. You probably didn't before this accident, and judging by the fact that I've been ignored every single time I've said it, most others don't either.
Bottom line: Educate yourself on the nature and function of the drugs you take. It never hurts to have a functional understanding of biology and anatomy.

And IUD doesn't take effect right away either.... not sure how long she had hers before it all happened.
Plus you being 19 i'm REALLY surprised she found a doctor who would give her an IUD. Took me 3 doctors before I found one that would give me one since i've never had kids. :scratches head:
I've had good luck so far! lol was WELL worth the pain to get it in there...
Sucks about the plan B though... I never did understand how girls could let the dude cum inside knowing there is 0 form of bc..
