Ok I had my period on June 19
It ended on June 24
I had protected sex with my boyfriend used a condom but it broke on June 24
That night, a half hour later June 24 I took plan b
I started to bleed again on June 28th
I looked it up online and talked to friends and everyone said that bleeding was normal that it was a reaction to taking plan b. I don't know if that was actually my period again or not.
Do I count 28 days from the first day I had my period June 19? Or the second day June 28th?

I don't understand why I'm getting my period late, I took plan b a half hour after the condom broke, we both were so freaked we ran out and got it!
Could my menstrual cycle be messed up now from taking plan b? I've never taken any form of birth control or plan b before!
I'm freaking out and I'm too scared to take a pregnancy test, I will next week if I don't get it by then!

Let me know your advice!

It is important to read the information that comes with your medication (Plan B), as it answers all of your questions (and, would help you not worry).

- Yes, Plan B can change your menstrual cycle slightly, and your period may be delayed (usually by just a week; some women report 2 weeks)
- Yes, Plan B can cause breakthrough bleeding (bleeding in-between your period), so the bleeding you experienced after taking Plan B would not be another period, but would be breakthrough bleeding
- If your period does not begin in the next week or two, take a home pregnancy test to rule out pregnancy, or call your doctor

That is great that you were using a condom, and you may want to read more about how to use a condom so you can prevent this from happening again in the future: Help! The condom broke during sex. Tips on preventing "wardrobe malfunctions".
