Plan B?!!!!!!! Did it work?
.I had unprotected sex with a guy friend of mine (May 29)..he pulled out and I immediently went to Walgreens and bought the Plan b pill and took it within an hour of the incident. I started bleeding about 8-9 days after I took the plan b pill and it lasted about 10 days (ended June 17) Should I be worried about getting pregnant?? I was supposed to start my period on July 10 and haven't yet...I've heard using Plan B can make your period late..Am I freaking out for no reason?? I called the pharmacy where I got the pill and she said that since my bleeding lasted 10 days and ended on June 17 I should give it a few days to see if I start..I am so worried..I'm terrified to take an HPT..

Hi cardzgurl, 

You might need to take a pregnancy test, just to know if you are pregnant.

Hi cardzgurl,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  Most women experience changes in their next period.  Such as a heavier or lighter, longer or shorter period.  You should wait a  few days and if you are still concerned, take a HPT.

Here are some resources for you
