Q: 

AM I PREGNANT?! What does this mean??

Hey,

Soo...I'm going to make the story short.

My last period was on July before all this event happened.

On August 20, unprotected sex happened. Told the guy to wear a condom but he didn't have it. So anyways, when he reached climax, he did the withdrawal method. So in the end...everything was on the female private part (starts with the V). I wiped it off and went to the washroom to urinate and took a shower. I got very paranoid, so I called Telehealth and the nurse said to get Plan B. She also said it's a slim chance that I will get pregnant.

The next day (19 hours later) I went to the store and bought Plan B. I took it once I bought it. Didn't vomit it out or anything.

On Wednesday August 25, I got my period. Well, first it was a dark brown discharge that turned into a period.. Usually my period lasts 5-7 days but this one lasted only for 3 days. I don't know if it was bleeding or period. Are they even the same thing?

On August 29th, my period or bleeding has stopped..but I have this brown discharge..and I'm guessing it's just dumping out the old blood, but I don't know.

On September 4, I went to the clinic and did a urine and blood test. The urine test said it was negative. I went to take the blood test next.

On September 14, I got the results. Ever since August 20th I stopped having sex. Here is what the results said(I SHORTEN IT):

TEST NAME: RIA HCG
RESULT: <2
ATTENTION:
REFERENCE RANGE:
UNITS: IU/L
FN LOC: 70

LEGEND:
NON-PREGNANT: <5
1ST WEEK: 5-50
2ND WEEK: 40-300
3RD WEEK: 100-1000
1ST TRIMESTER: 10000-200000
2ND TRIMESTER: 3000-50000
3RD TRIMESTER: 1000-50000

NOTE: RESULTS IN THE 2 TO 50 IU/L RANGE SHOULD BE INTERPRETED WITH CAUTION. HCG DOUBLES EVERY 2 DAYS IN EARLY PREGNANCY.

DOES THAT MEAN I'M PREGNANT? CAN SOMEONE PLEASE EXPLAIN THIS TO ME MORE CLEARLY? ARE PERIODS AND BLEEDING THE SAME THING? SHOULD I EVEN WORRY ANYMORE SINCE I GOT THE RESULTS? WHAT HAPPENS IF I DON'T GET MY PERIOD THIS MONTH?! DOES THAT MEAN I'M PREGNANT? Lately I've been pretty stressed out about this situation! PLEASE HELP ME WITH THIS. THANKS.

BTW: I LIVE IN CANADA

Hi Anonymous,
As stated, it looks from the information you provided that the test was negative for pregnancy. If you are really concerned, and can't wait for the doctor to return on Oct. 5th, do you want to go back to where you took the test, or call the clinic and ask someone to explain the results to you so you can verify for yourself what you think it says?
Let us know what you find out.

Hi Anonymous,
As you know, any time you have sex and don't use protection, you put yourself at risk for getting pregnant. Abstaining or using protection (condom, spermicide or birth control pill) are the only reliable ways to guard against unwanted pregnancy.
According to the information you have provided (assuming I'm reading it correctly):
RESULT: <2
The legend you included states that if result is less than (<) 5, you're not pregnant. Did someone not tell you the result when they gave it to you?
I understand that taking PlanB can mess up your menstrual cycle for a month or 2, so if you don't get it when expected, try to not get stressed. Stress also can mess up your menstrual cycle. Take note of when you do get it so you'll know when your cycle is back on track.
Hope this helps!
