Worried about my period

Before I explain my situation, Please do not judge, I know it was dangerous and I know I need to stop, which I am intending to do so... but here goes. So my boyfriend and I had unprotected sex on May 6th, got my normal period on the 10th of May that lasted till the 14th. I had unprotected sex again on the 19th of May, he did not ejaculate in me but we had done it alot that day so we went to get the Plan B one step pill on the 20th, approximately 24 hours after. and I had experienced, based on research, "break through bleeding" which I heard is a side effect of the pill, on the 26th of May through the 31st. It definitely was not a normal period. The consistency looked different, much more dry and brown at times. I believed it wasn't normal because I had already had my period for the month of May. I believed my normal period for the month of June would be expected, but I had unprotected sex on the 4th of June however he did not ejaculate in me and the only thing I am afraid of is the pre-ejaculatory fluid. But it really only lasted about 2 minutes... I usually receive my period on the 9th, 10th, 11th, or 12th. It is now june 13th, 12 am. I'm afraid and I know I am stupid, I can't afford a child, and I'm literally drowning in guilt, stress, and anxiety. I am planning on taking a pregnancy test in the morning... What do you believe is going on with my body.... Do you think my period is late due to the emergency contraception pill? Did I already receive my period for the month of June when I had thought I had "break through bleeding"? Should I wait a couple more days to see if I will come?...

Please help.

I don't have a great answer to your question but I would definitely recommend using condoms or another form of contraception like the pill from here on out. If you are worried about money it is the cheapest way to prevent pregnancy, as well as STDs. Try talking to your partner to see if he is willing to buy the condoms. Try not to stres too much and good luck with your situation!

I took a pregnancy test, came out negative. Should I take another in a couple of days or a week to make sure?

Go from your last period date. You should take into account that plan B basically forces you to have another period, so it's likely that your body is going thorough a sort of reset. This is coming from my own personal experience, when my partner (at that time) and I experienced a condom break. I would still do the second pregnancy test to be certain, but try not to stress over it. Stress alone can cause delays in your cycle. I hope this helps.

Been there - Wait longer and take another test.. had weird period like that myself... "pulling out" is NOT an effective method, trust me.. and adoption is a GREAT thing should it work out that you are preggers!

Hi Anon!

Thanks for your post!

What may be going on is cycle interruption due to the use of emergency contraception.

However, if your period is late or due now, you need to take a pregnancy test.There is no point speculating as nobody can tell you if you're pregnant - only a test.
