Emergency contraception dilemma! Help!

February 27th, 2011

Ok, so I am married and have a baby that is almost 7 months. I am not planning on getting pregnant for at least another six months so I had been on birth control pills. Well, my last pill (placebo) ended Sat. 7/26. I had my period on Wed. 7/23. I had unprotected sex Sunday, Monday, and Wed of this week. I just was not thinking and got caught up in the heat of the moment and we are not used to condoms because we are married and use only the pill. I did not pick up new birth control pills last weekend because we did not have enough money and we had a wedding to go to. I decided to get the emergency contraception pill today and then i read up on it after i took the first pill and i feel terrible because it says it can prevent a fertilized egg from implanting in the uterus. I do not want to kill my baby if im pregnant!!!!!!! Should I not take the other pill? And if I don’t do you think that a fertilized egg might be ok? Or do i have to take the pill in order not to mess up my body? I have no idea when i could of ovulated or will ovulate?! I just know that 7/27 would have been day 5 in my cycle, monday would have been day 6, and wed would have been day 8. I’m just really upset and confused. Somebody please help me. I am going to use condoms the rest of the month and then start a new pack of birth control pills if im not pregnant obviously. Nice answers only please because this is a very sensitive issue to me and I love my husband and do not want to stop a life we created together from surviving,

    Until the fertilized egg attaches to the uterus and begins to “feed” for lack of better words, it is not a baby.

    The Plan B doesn’t kick the baby out once it has attached, but rather thickens the lining of the uterus so the egg can’t.
    Please, if you don’t want another baby yet take it!

    that is what the emergency pill is for, a abortion in a bottle. you shouldn’t have anything to worry about because you should start to ovulate about 14 days after your period starts. just don’t take the other pill.

    i thinking if you dont want to get pregnant you should take the other pill. You need to take to a doctor about the fertilized egg surviving after already taking one of the pills only he or she would know.
