Hi. I'm 17. I had my normal period and it ended on feb 7th - the next day I lost my virginity around 9 am Feb 8th. On the 9th around 1pm I took the plan B pill, I had the usual side effects I slept and had a headache the rest of the day. On the 10th, I had "usual" spotting and started a light period for 4-5 days which is normal, right ? Well it's not March 17, & I haven't had a normal period, I'm eating more than usual, lower abdomen pain occurs a lot, extremely tired and moody, breast soreness, and have to pee more than usual. I'm freaking out can't stop thinking about it plus I'm dizzy some and a bit nauseous every now and then. We used a condom and took the pill but I'm still freaking out bc it's been a month and a half. Someone please help me ?!! I can't sleep. I took 1 pregnancy test the other day and it said negative but sometimes they're wrong .. someone help me ? Is this normal to go this long without ?! Plus the pain and symptoms !

Dear idontknow,

Thank you for your post.

Emergency contraceptives are up to 95% effective when taken as prescribed within the first 24 hours, so the risk is very small. Side effects can include stomach aches, headaches, nausea and a general feeling of being unwell. Symptoms usually start 3-7 days after taking the medication and may or may not include bleeding or spotting. Not all women get symptoms. If you don’t get your next period within a week of it’s expected date a pregnancy test may be necessary although the risk is very low. It can cause your period to be early or late, have a lighter or heavier flow, so be aware of this. If you used a condom correctly (no breaks or leaks) you did not need to take ECP. It should only be used in cases of birth control failure and/or unprotected sex.
