ask: I took Plan B and got my period a week after but I did not get it this month

My husband and I had unprotected sex once and I took plan b an hour later. I got my period a week later, but it was light and lasted 4 days when mine usually lasts a week. This month I waited and did not get it at all and this is the last day of the month. I took a pregnancy test last month even after I got my period and it read "not pregnant" I have not taken one since and me and my husband are very confused. Is there a chance I could be pregnant even after getting my period last month?

Hi Anonymous,

Thank you for your question and welcome to Empowher. You did the right thing and the after effect of irregular periods is common. You can expect to have irregular periods for approximately two cycles. You should be fine. Hope this helps.
