How will she know?

My bestfriend just found out a couple of weeks ago that she is pregnant, she's worried though cause she slept unprotected with two different guys around the time she got pregnant. She had intercourse 12/9 and 12/10. And also on 12/13 with the different partner, he had a slip though so she took the emergency contraception Plan B.. but she said that 12/13 was also her highest day of ovulation. So how is she going to know who's baby it is!? Also, she said that she waited about 8hours before she took the Plan B.

  • She won't--there is no way to know without a DNA test. Tell her to be honest NOW and not to try to cover and hide things.

  • Having sex with 2 men within 3 days, there is NO way to tell which one is the father. Sperm can stay active in her body for 3 days, so it could be either. And, if she were pregnant with twins (surely hope NOT) then they could each be fathered by two different men. My brother has twins, and they were conceived 3 days apart. Of course, they were both his!

  • Plan B does not work if you are already pregnant. The Plan B pill induces a period to prevent pregnancy. If she took the pill and saw no signs of a period afterwards, she was already pregnany when she took it. Keep in mind, it takes a few days after sex for conception as the sperm takes time to swim and the eggs takes time to implant. If she took it 8 hours after sex with partner two, she was unlikely already pregnant with his child. If she was already pregnant when she took plan B, she was most likely impregnated by Partner A. Keep in mind, Plan B is not 100% effective, so this explanation is operating on the assumption that the pill would have worked if she wasn't already pregnant. Chances are it was the first guy, but only a DNA test will tell.
