I had my period around July 12, me and my boyfriend has had protected sex about four times since that period but the last time the condom broke on August 7th and I took the plan b pill in 24 hours, I started spotting on August 11th and it was only for a couple days and really light. It's the 24th and still haven't had a regular period. Was that my period and I should have a regular one next month? Or what I need help?

Wait until my period is due next month and then take a Pregnancy test? And okay so are you saying that the little bit of blood was my period?

Hi XxxOoo,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  Many women experience changes in their next period after taking an emergency pill, such as a longer or shorter, lighter or heavier period.  You might want to wait until your period is due and take a home pregnancy test.
