is it normal to get your period VERY early after taking the morning after pill?

Me and my boyfriend were having sex when the condom broke, we didn't notice it and he finished inside me. I went and got the morning after pill right away. I experienced terrible nauseous, and the next day i thought i started spotting a bit. It didnt stop and now it has turned so heavy so i am assuming it is my normal period. However i am not due to get mine for about 2 and a half more weeks. I am wondering if this is normal, if it really is my period, and if this will mean my cycle will be messed up or not. I wanted to go on the pill but now i am wondering if that too could only mess with my body more.

( I have used the morning after pill once before, and i experienced none of this, everything was normal.)

Okay I had unprotected sex on July 3rd, 5days after my period. I took the plan B the morning of July 4th. On Monday July 10th I got what I thought looked my my period but it only lasted 2 days. I wasnt supposed to start my period for another 15 days. Is there any way I can be pregnant?

I had an unprotected sex last June 17 and i took ecp three days after it but after a few hours of taking it, i had an unprotected sex again but I didn't drink ecp. On June 23, yes, i had an unprotected sex again but tjis time, i only waited for a few minutes before drinking ecp. But for those three unprotected sex, im sure that he didn't ejaculate inside me because i saw him ejaculate right in front of me. On june 28, i had a red discharge and it continued for three days. The flow is medium. Is there any chance that i might be pregnant?

same situation- it sucked. 2 days after taking a crappy cvs brand plan b, i began spotting which turned into a full-on period that lasted a week, then another week of spotting; and now after havibg just gotten over the spotting, i am getting my regular period (which occurs normally the last week pf month).

i read online that plan b induces bleeding ("breakthrough blood" or something like that) but the bleeding is not your period, it is the lining.

I had sex with my boyfriend for the first time, a week from today. It was not protected. And while he didn't ejaculate inside of me, I went out and bought an emergency contraceptive. I took it right away. We had sex again on Thursday but a condom was used. I didn't take the pill after that. Since taking the pill, I had some discharge and spotting at first but yesterday it's as if I started my period like 9 days early? Is this because of the pill! Am I pregnant! I'm so worried and confused right now.

i had unprotected sex on May 5th, but he didn't come inside of me and two days later i took the plan b pill. It's now May 13th and i'm bleeding heavily, however my period ended on May 6th. Could my period be this early, when i usually start around the 28th/ end of the month? I'm very concerned and i hope i'm not pregnant. Could i be?

Hello, I had unprotected sex 2 days after my period and wasn't due to ovulate yet, 3 days later I took a after pill and about a day or 2 had what seemed like spotting but it was brown, a few days later idk why I took 2 more offbrand morning pills together and a few days after that I started bleeding a few days before my expected next period I've taken a test it was negative I even called a doctor's office and spoke with them they say it should be accurate, I just need to know for peace of mind how badly I've hurt myself doing this.
