Brief Answer:
It doesn't work during ovulation

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear welcome to Ask a doctor's service.
I read your query and here is my advice.
Plan b will not work during or after ovulation.
If ovulation started plan B pill will not stop it, it it hasn't started yet it will delay it .
That's why we recommend it to be taken as soon as possible after intercourse.
If you were around ovulation and took it after 10 hours it probably won't work.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
