I used Plan B a day or so ago. How soon should I get on some type of birth control?

As soon as possible! The morning-after pill can help prevent pregnancy within five days after you have unprotected intercourse, but it won’t prevent pregnancy for any sex you may have after taking the pills. So it’s important to start using a regular form of birth control right away. Our MyMethod widget can help you figure out what birth control method is right for you.
