Am I Pregnant?

I took plan B on February after unprotected sex. Ever since then my periods were shorter than they used to be. However, this month, July, I was 4 days late...and when I got it, it only lasted for 2 days (heavy and bad cramps on the first day) I've been having pregnancy symptoms: nausea, tired, headache, lower back pain...etc. I always feel nauseated after I eat. I had sex early this month but it was protected and we checked and found everything was fine, nothing's broken.

I had my appendix removed in June also. Would it be the cause or is it possible that I am pregnant?

Hello TinyMinnie,

Welcome to the EmpowHER community. Thank you for coming to us with your concern that you might be pregnant, inspite of having a period.

Was February the first time you ever took an emergency contraceptive?

It is possible that a hormonal imbalance or upset occurred. I suggest this because ever since taking the pill, your periods have been irregular.

Contact and speak with your gynecologist about this. Blood tests to check hormone levels may be suggested.

Keep in touch,

Yes Feb was the first time I ever took it. My following periods were shorter but on the same day I normally got my periods before taking Plan B. But I was late this month. Today is the third day of my period and I am only spotting. So pregnancy is not possible?
Does hormone imbalance cause those symptoms too?

Hi TinyMinnie,

Yes. A hormonal imbalance can cause periods to be late or early and flow to be lighter or heavier than normal.
