i had unprotected sex but took plan b the day after, and got a shorter period after that, and then got another period a couple weeks later, but i have been having a lot of stomach cramps lately and feel really bloated. i took 2 pregnancy tests and they were both negative but is there still a chance that i could be pregnant or am i just being paranoid?

No Anon,

You period will come when it's ready. I know it's a real pain to wait but hang in there!

Hi Anon

Thanks for your post - I know this can be a very scary time for a woman.

It is highly unlikely that you are pregnant, Anon. Plan B is very effective (about 92%) and you had bleeding from the Plan B which is a common side effect. But after this you got your regular period again.

Some of your symptoms could be due to PMS or even nerves and stress about being pregnant.

But additionally, you have had two negative pregnancy tests.

These negative tests as well as having a proper period after Plan B indicate that you are not pregnant and that stress is more likely to be the culprit.

Obviously we cannot guarantee anyone that they are/are not pregnant but I feel pretty confident is saying that your odds of being pregnant are about a low as you can get.

Has this information helped you?
