Ok well I had unprotected sex on 15th August and the next day within 24 hours I took the morning after pill. Exactly a week later on the 22nd August I started bleeding and I had this for 2-3 days. I normally have my period within the first week of a month ( Dont know exact dates sorry) and I had my normal period at the beginning of auguest before the unprotected sex. Its now the 15th September and I havnt had my period again yet... Im getting seriously concerned. Ive taken 6 pregnancy tests all of which have come out negative, but for the last week to week and a half ive been getting minor cramps and aches and pains in my legs (which i normally have before i come on) but still have had no period!! Someone please help with my situation... Im so stressed about it, I cant eat, I cant sleep, its all i think about! Help Help Help!

Hello! It's extremely embarrassing for me to be writing this because I know it was completely stupid of me but at the time I thought it would be okay until I did more research so please don't be rude. My boyfriend and I had unprotected sex Thursday the 18th. He "finished" inside of me three times. (We had already decided to get the morning after pill) the next morning I went and purchased the take action pill. I had read it makes you very sick so I waited until after work to take it (11 hours) we had figured it was still in my system so we had unprotected sex 2 more times. I haven't experienced any bleeding after taking the pill. I believe my period is coming around the 28th of this month. I don't think I was ovulating during this time. If I am it's okay I'm just curious?

I had my last period around the 9th November and I was a few days late as I came on on the 6th October. However, my period is a few days late, I'm not sure if this is some weird pattern or what. It could be due to stress from University work and me and my boyfriend have had a major rough patch so I've been so upset this past week, although everything is OK now. I took a test last night for pregnancy, and to my relief it was negative.

Yesterday afternoon me and my boyfriend had unprotected sex, stupidly, but you know heat of the moment and all that jazz! Anyway, I went to the clinic this morning for the morning after pill and explained my situation. The nurse assured me the negative test should be some what accurate and my late period may well be due to the stress and upset I have gone through this past week. He said I should do a pregnancy test in 3 weeks to make sure this M.A.P has worked. He explained it's probably unlikely that I am pregnant due to having unprotected sex so near my period and I took the pill within 24 hours, however, this isn't always the case.

I'm just worried the M.A.P is going to delay my period even more and this will worry me even more and I'll be certain that I'm pregnant. Obviously, I won't know until a test is done in 3 weeks time but I'm just wondering do you think my period is just late due to stress etc. as I feel like I am going to come on, and have felt this for the past few days- tender breasts, minor back ache and very emotional. And, do you think I have a high chance of being pregnant from the incident yesterday?

Just need to put my mind at rest! Any help and advice will be appreciated. I've also received the mini pill now to take when my period comes along!

I am soo terrified. I had sex with my boyfriend on May 7 and the condom came off inside of me. We got plan b and I took it within 7hrs. I got my period on May 14 and it lasted for 5 days and was very light compared to my normal flow. Today is not July 8 and still no period. I am soo worried. I have taken 3 hpt and they are all negative.. Help please!

Hi Anon,

It's common to have a change in period when having taken Plan B. However if you skipped June and have yet to get your period since May I would give it another week and if you still haven't had it on the 14th, then you should check in with your doctor. You're not pregnant if you have 3 negative HPT's but like I said, if you don't get it by the 14th call your doctor.

All the best,
