I am 17 years old and I had sex for the first time on March 10th and again on 21st and 29th but on the 29th the condom broke and I took the next choice pill right after. I didn't get my period this month I had spotting 3days after the 10th but after that I haven't gotten my period. I had it last month. I after the 29th I feel bloated and minor cramping and noutious just a little I feel like I want to go number 2 but I can't. I clean my self and I have really light spotting. I'm scared I might be pregnate but maybe I'm over reacting. Please help

Hello Anonymous,

A delay in the start of your period is a side effect of Next Choice.If you do not get your period by Monday, October 8, take a home pregnancy test.

Hi anaikari,

Thank you for your question. The answer is yes. It is very common to have irrregularity for at least two cylces after using Next Choice or Plan B. The bleeding you experienced is a good sign of not being pregnant and usually is associated with the pill. You should be fine. If you have any concerns, contact your physician.

Good luck,
