Plan B

My bf and I got intimate on 14 december 2014 and he rubbed his penis around my vagina and not inside it. But just for precaution I took Plan B after 28 hours. I had blood spotting (very less) on 30 december 2014 till 2 Jan 2015. My first day of last period was on 6 December 2014 so my periods were due on 3 jan 2015. I am confused if it was light period or just blood spotting? Also How can I be sure if Plan B has worked?

Hello, and thank you for sharing your question with the community.  I'd love to give you some information on the subject.

Pregnancy can only occur if the male partner ejaculates into your vagina during intercourse.  Plan B is 95% effective when taken approximately 24 hours following this event.  You took it only a few hours after 24 hours, therefore the effectiveness would not have been much less than 95%.  Since your boyfriend did not ejaculate into your vagina and you took Plan B, it will not be possible for you to get pregnant from that event.

Your period is most likely irregular from other causes such as hormonal imbalances, stress, too little sleep, or medication to name a few.  

The best way of confirming whether or not you are pregnant is to take a pregnancy test.  If you really want to be certain that is always an option.

If your period continues to be irregular and you are not pregnant, however, I suggest that you see your doctor to find out what could be causing it.

I hope this helps.  Let us know if you have any more questions.
