Dear Anon

Thanks for your question and welcome!

Congrats on taking Plan B when you did. I didn't know they still sold the two-pill version, I thought it was narrowed down to the one-pill now.

While we can't guarantee you're not pregnant, we can assure you that getting a 'period' after taking Plan B is actually quite common. It is listed as one of the most common side effects. As long as you took them as directed, you will have to wait it out, unfortunately. Here are some very similar stories that I hope can ease your mind a little :



I hope these similar stories help you. It also helps that you had unprotected sex on day 5 of your cycle. No time is completely safe but this is one of the safer times!

I wish you the best and would love to hear an update on your cycle getting back to normal next month. An update will also help many of our readers with similar questions. Can you do that?
