Dtd late last night and the condom slipped off inside me! Are there any alternatives to the Plan B pill? AF started 2 days earlier than expected so, if I still O on cd14 as usual, I'm due to O on Sunday. Are there any alternatives to Plan B to delay O or jump start AF? I know evening primrose oil can delay O in some, I also know Vit C is also sometimes used to help with an "oops," and there's also black & blue cohosh... but I don't know the details on these, how effective they are, how much I need to take, what it will do, etc. I will take Plan B if necessary but I want to look into other options first as I'm still fixing problems that the birth control pill caused. Granted I don't have very much ewcm ever (thanks BC pill, ugh), but I'm still worried. I obviously don't have much time so I'm getting the Plan B in the morning if I don't find any good alternatives that I can feel confident enough in.

I'd be worried. You're within that fertile window, I'd say. Did he finish?
I'd probably do plan B. Also, if you have any birth control pills left over that aren't expired, you can take several of those.
Here, this chart shows the number to take, depending on which brand you use: http://ec.princeton.edu/questions/dose.html
I hate hormonal birth control too, but a few more days of it is better than an unplanned pregnancy.

I went ahead and got Plan B. Went out last night and was gone when I was supposed to take the second dose (stayed out later than planed otherwise I would have brought it with me). So I took it 14 hours later, not 12. Hoping that doesn't make a difference. I have continued with mega doses of vit C and evening primrose oil just in case - I almost always O on cd14 but O'd on cd13 once, and yesterday when I took plan B was cd13. My temps this morning were very high but I wasn't able to fall asleep until almost 7am and my normal temp time is 8am, so I ended up temping around 10am I think. Anyone know how many days it delays O by on average?
