Not on BC..I had unprotected sex on May 29, 2012..he pulled out and I immediately (within an hour) went to Walgreens and bought the Plan b pill. My usual period is around the 10th of the month and I am very regular. I started bleeding about 5 days after I took the plan b pill and it lasted about 10 days. It is now July 16 and I haven't had my period yet and I am freaking out!! Should I be worried about getting pregnant?? Is it normal to be late?? Will my period come soon? Please Help!!

Hi cardzgurl,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Some of the side effects of plan B can be changes in your next period, such as heavier or lighter, shorter or longer. If you are concerned, you might want to take a HPT.

I remember using plan b before and had a similar experience. It messed my periods up for about a month. For peace of mind you could always purchase a pregnancy test and take it. Alhough I can't guarantee you're not pregnant, Plan B does mess with your cycle. So give yourself a break and if you're feeling that anxious about it go get yourself a test and make yourself feel better.
I hope this helps and good luck
