As i have said, i had period approximately 2 weeks earlier before my expected period, and a week after i took plan b pills (6 days after intercourse). When exactly can i expect my period to come? And do i still have the chance of being pregnant?

I took a pregnancy test yesterday, and it is 3 weeks more since the incident. It is negative, but i am not sure about the accuracy if i do it now, because its nearing the time when i get my period.

Hi tifaky,

Cramping is a common side effect from taking the pill. If you need an answer, you did not follow the recommended usage of the pill and therefore, I think there is a possibility. If you are experiencing cramping, this could also mean pre-menstrual. Don't get too upset until you know for sure.

Just wanted to know whether the chance of being pregnant is big, cuz i already have a minor period and i dont know when to expect for the next period.

Hi tifaky,

You will have to wait until you miss a period to be certain. Since you already had bleeding, wait again to see if you miss a period, or take a pregnancy test to see what the results are...this may give you a piece of mind.

Keep us posted.

Hi tifaky,

Thank you again for your question. You must understand that taking Plan B will cause irregularity for at least two months or to cycles. If you took the pill within 24 hours (as you mentioned before), you should be fine that you are "not pregnant". If you are having a period, this is a good sign.

I hope this helps.
