Okay, so last month I was a day late to get my period. This month I was supposed to get my period this past Sunday (Oct 24th 2010) and today's wednesday ( Oct 27th 2010) and I still havent gotten my period, yet. Its not normal for me to be late until last and this month happened. Today, I went to the pharmacy with my bf and got Plan B, so i took it. The reason I went to buy Plan B is to see if i get my period on time this week, still and my sister in law said it will help me to get my period. My bf and I always use protection all the time. My question is, will i get my period this week/month, still?

Hi Anonymous,

If you are already pregnant and take Plan B, the pill will not affect the pregnancy so if you are pregnant, a pregnancy test will still report as positive. When you take Plan B, you will more then likely have irregular periods for the next couple months which is very common. So be prepared for that possibility as well.

I hope this helps.
Keep us posted.

Will still affect my period by taking that pill on the week that i was supposed to get my period? What i am trying to say is am I starting a different cycle here after taking it and i wontt get my period because i took plan b? Its weird because all this week, ive been feeling like I am about to start to get my period, but I am not. I feel those symptoms when I am about to get my period but nothing comes out. its like a flood. Also, since i was supposed to get my period this past sunday and if i take a pregnancy test on tuesday after taking plan b this week, will the pregnacy test could say "negative"?

Anon - We are unable to tell you when your period will come. Plan B is an emergency contraceptive and not a product used to induce periods. You may experience side effects including:
* period that is longer in duration
* period that begins a week early
* period that begins a week late
* breakthrough bleeding
* nausea
* vomiting
