Since we knew every time we had been together because we had a long-distance relationship, we traced the dates back to a time when I had taken the morning after pill. I was ALWAYS paranoid about getting pregnant and I knew I wasn’t taking my birth control like I should be, so there were times when — if I was feeling super paranoid — I would take the morning after pill. The time I got pregnant was one of those times.
Most people don’t know this, but if you take Plan B — also known as the morning after pill — after the fetus has already attached itself to the uterine wall, it won’t do anything. You’ll still be pregnant. So, basically, in that 12-hour window after I had sex, the sperm met my ovary and latched onto my uterus, making me get pregnant. I took the morning after pill about 12 hours after intercourse, so it was already too late by then.
