My girlfriend and I were having sex on the 26th. It's likely that her fluid got on the bed as it had a different white pasty consistency, but it is possible that there was leakage from the base of the condom. We're not sure. She started taking birth control for the first time on the 17th and she started her period on the 15th. The packaging on the birth control claims it will be effective after a week, but her doctor said a month. Would taking plan B be paranoid or logical?
Hi! If your girlfriend was my patient, I would advise her that IF she has taken her birth control pills appropriately, without missing any, she should be OK. Starting the pill with her period should have prevented her from ovulating this cycle, and so should protect her. Taking Plan B would not hurt anything, but would probably be over kill. Over kill is never wrong though, Good luck! Dr B
