Hey guys. So I've been on this site numerous times after taking plan b reading stories to console myself. My s/o and I had unprotected sex on April 7th and he came inside of me. The incident was around 12 am and I took plan b later that day around 8 am. One week later on the 14th i bled from taking the plan b. It lasted 5 days like my regular periods which are usually 5 - 7 days. My period wasn't due until the 24th however. I wasn't bothered much as i told myself it was the plan b working. My next period after the plan b bleed was due the 13th of May, 30 days later. The 13th arrived and my period did not come. This was now 5 weeks and one day after the unprotected sex, we used protection every day since then. I was a little worried so my s/o bought me a test which when used was negative. The 17th came, no period. The 21st came, no period. Then finally of the 24th of May my period came, almost 11 days late. I had taken two more tests before it came. The time before my period came i was worried sick I was so convinced I was pregnant and even tho my s/o assured me he would support our child 100% i am not ready for children and even tho i am pro-choice i would not have an abortion myself. I had many symptoms including: nausea, nipple soreness, lots of vaginal discharge, abdominal cramping and diarrhea. I am honestly usually not so careless and have learned my lesson. Before persons say you should just take regular birth control i have. It gave me severe pelvic pain and made sex very painful. It also caused my sex drive to be extremely low. It was almost 3 years since I had been sexually active and had never enjoyed sex, not once. Then i found out it was the birth control pills. I had lost my virginity and still felt like a virgin in some ways due to the problems the pill caused for me because i still didn't feel the joy of sex or have any urge to do it. My s/o stuck with me through it all however and would always reassure me and let me know i didn't have to do it so he could feel pleasure but i didn't want him to miss out on sex because of me and i also wanted to try to see if one day it would feel better and i would understand why people like it. I cried so many times cuz i would try and then it would be painful and we would stop and sleep. I felt sad because couldn't connect to him in that way. I even experienced pelvic pain just doing regular stuff around my house. I had all sorts of blood tests done for stds which were all negative, and a pelvic ultrasound as well but it turns out it was the bc pills all along. This is not to discourage people from taking bc as i believe people should. Just find the form that is good for you as things react with people differently.
