Q: 

Could I be pregnant?

My last cycle was 10/20. I was supposed to start on 11/16 (according to my Ptracker app). I am now 3 days late. I had sex for the first time on 11/12 and it was unprotected (he pulled out before ejaculation which I know is not necessarily the best thing to prevent pregnancy). I am currently on birth control pills and am normally good about taking them at the right time. I missed my pill on 11/11 and doubled up the evening of 11/12. I took Plan B on the morning of 11/13. I currently have an UTI and I am not on antibiotics. Just taking Azo for now. Is it possible that I am pregnant or am I merely stressing over it? I read that Plan B can sometimes delay your cycle but I am still worried. Any advice would be appreciated.

Hello Anon,

Thanks for reaching out to EmpowHer community.
If you are on birth control and also took Plan B correctly, it's unlikely you are pregnant. To answer your the question, yes, emergency contraception can cause your periods to be irregular. Side effects may include changes in your period, nausea, lower abdominal pain, fatigue, headache, dizziness and breast tenderness. Some women may have changes in their period, a heavier or lighter next period, or a period that is early or late.
