Hello! I'm a 27 year old and I lost my virginity on December 10.. we had unprotected sex but he pulled out .. I took plan b within an hour and a half.. but here's the thing: I had my period on December 22 and usually it's a 35 days cycle .. I'm worrying sick that I might get pregnant and I've been panicking a lot and taking pregnancy tests all negative .. plus during those two days I've been having those urges to pee and a bit of headache not that severe tho .. I dunno if it's because of the pill or bcz I'm stressing or if that I'm pregnant .. my period is due in 3 days and I just took a pregnancy test today and negative thank God!! Please advise I don't know what to do and I can't tell anyone culture forbids and my family too conservative help plz

Please i need help. I have a 28 day cycle and my last period started on the 21st of November. On the 30th of November (10th day of my cycle), i went very intimate with my fiance(no penetration and i am still a Virgin) but we were really close and he ejaculated on my stomach but i don't know not sure if some went close to my vagina. Normally i had to ovulate on the 4th of december and 6dpo i had really serious cramps on my left side. Then i had mild af cramps for three more days. at around 10dpo my right breast was really sore and my nipple tensed, then the next day it was gone. Since then i have been extremely tired, slight nausea, sweat some days at night and mild af cramps. today my period was supposed to start but Nothing. I took a preg urine test in the morning and it was negative. my vagina is dry. am i pregnant? i am totally confused

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Thank you for reaching out to our community with your concern.

How could you have had your period on December 22 when today is December 16?

Plan B can cause changes to the menstrual cycle. Your period may start in three days or it may start later. If you are late by more than five days, then test for pregnancy.

Try to relax. Please consider scheduling an appointment with a gynecologist to discuss birth control options. The withdrawal method is not reliable.

Regards,
Maryann

sorry my last period was on 22 November not December .. aren't Plan b pills effective? Will I get pregnant eventho he pulled out? I think that the day we had unprotected sex was my ovulation day that's why I'm freaking out more !! I read that if I took the pregnancy test 4-5 days before my period is due the results will still be accurate .. I'm definitely gonna start taking birth control and I need guidance on that too .. plz help is it possible I am now n the tests are wrong? The urges to pee aren't they relative to pregnancy symptoms ..

Hello Anonymous,

An emergency contraceptive, like Plan B, is effective if taken before ovulation and within 72 hours of unprotected intercourse.

The withdrawal or pull out method is not 100% effective.

Plan B can cause changes in the menstrual cycle. Your next period could start earlier or later than expected.

The recommendation is to test for pregnancy if you have not had any bleeding within three weeks of taking the pill.

An early response pregnancy test is accurate. But, if you took Plan B, because of the side effect of menstrual cycle changes, it might not be as effective.

Regards,
Maryann
