Hello Anonymous,

Though your menstrual cycles have been irregular since August, you have gotten a period each month and therefore you are not pregnant.

Some women experience changes in their menstrual cycle as a result of taking Plan B. Stress, such as worrying that you might be pregnant, can cause your period to be delayed.

Now that you are sexually active, you need to start using birth control. Condoms, as you know. can break and are not 100% effective in preventing pregnancy. Learn more by visiting the EmpowHER Sexual Health 101 resource page.
