Unfortunatelly, I am ashamed to say that I had an abortion this march. Since, my boyfriend and I have started using protection. I had my period two weeks ago. The next day after my period was over I had sex with my boyfriend and the condom broke. That same day I bought Next Choice and took the pill at night and accidently took the second pill 14 hours later. A week later goes by and I got my period again. (I only went without my period for a week). While I've been on my "second period" which has been going on for 5 days now I've have felt nausea and not that much appetite. One thing that scares me is that when I was pregnant before and had the abortion being only 3 weeks pregnant, I remember having nausea but it would mostly be throwing up clear phlegm. And no I wasn't nor am sick and just this morning I did the same thing. Could I be pregnant again, even if though I currently have my period (It's just as heavy as my normal period would be)? I appreciate your answers and please please please, I don't want to hear negative [nor positive (if any)] comments about my decision due to abortion. Thank you.

Dear Anonymous1234,

What you are experiencing sound like side effects of Plan B. These include: 

Changes in your period, nausea, lower abdominal pain, fatigue, headache, dizziness, and breast tenderness. After taking Plan B® One-Step, women should be informed that their next period may be heavier or lighter, earlier or later. In a clinical trial, the majority of women, 95%, had their menstrual period at the expected time or within ±7 days. 5 Patients should be advised that if their period is more than one week late, they may be pregnant. If your patient experiences severe abdominal pain, she may have an ectopic pregnancy and should seek immediate medical attention.

Hope this helps,
