Dear Anon,

Thank you for visiting the EmpowHER community and sharing your question about your girlfriend and your situation.

I am sure that you are terrified and very worried. 

You only have a few days to prevent pregnancy after unprotected sex or birth control failure. Plan B One-Step® works better the sooner you take it. It must be taken within 72 hours (3 days) of unprotected sex.

Based on what you said, did she wait 7 days to take it? If so, then it was too late. OR did you mean the next day (Which was Thursday)? If she took it within 72 hours, then most likely she's not pregnant.

Having stomach pains after taking the pill is very common-but she could have already been pregnant if she missed the 72 hour window.

Unfortunately, you guys are just going to have to wait to see if her period comes or wait another week when a pregnancy test would be accurate. 

Did this answer your question?
