    Not if you've already ovulated, then it's up to mother nature.  Tracking ovulation on an app is of marginal value.

    Plan B delays ovulation (up to 95% of the time) but if you have already ovulated when you take the Plan B it's too late.Your app can't to tell you exactly when ovulation will happen - it's just calculating, based on the dates that you put into it, an estimated "fertile" time.

    APPS predict ovulation based on PAST PATTERNS.

    Your ACTUAL ovulation for this cycle COULD be earlier or later than what that APP is predicting.

    Using a condom is a better choice than relying on plan B.  If the condom broke and plan B is your only option, it is certainly better than doing nothing at all.  Plan B MIGHT still prevent pregnancy if ovulation hasn't actually happened yet this cycle.  

    If you google "how does plan B work" - you will get this information:  Plan B One-Step works like other birth control pills to prevent pregnancy. The drug acts primarily by stopping the release of an egg from the ovary. It may prevent a sperm from fertilizing the egg. If fertilization does occur, Plan B One-Step may prevent a fertilized egg from attaching to the womb.

    So, even though the main goal of plan B is stopping ovulation, if ovulation has happened, it might prevent the egg from becoming fertilized or it might prevent the egg from attaching.  So, taking plan B even if it is during ovulation is still better than doing nothing at all.

    Your app doesn't know. It doesn't know the minute, hour, or day it happens. It GUESSES.

    It's not like flipping an OFF switch. Hormones work when they work. If they work.
