Am I pregnant? Or is it a spike in blood sugar?

Hello, three weeks ago I took the Plan B One Step pill 4 days after a little scare. I tried to wash out a little bit of semen in my mouth by swishing around water, remembering I had some on my finger, I stuck it in and swished it around then swallowed. A few minutes after that, I mindlessly touched myself directly due to an itch. I thought nothing of it, but it kept bugging me so I eventually took the pill just to be safe. My period came as scheduled, a little heavier than normal though. I had cramps and a bit of spotting a few days later. However, the past two days I have been extremely fatigued, and have noticed a slight increase in urination despite drinking the normal amount of water I do. Could this be elevated blood sugar due to the pill or early signs of pregnancy? This is my first time taking an emergency contraceptive and I am not on birth control

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for seeking our help with your concerns.

You are not pregnant , therefore, fatigue and increased urination are not early signs of pregnancy. Nor does Plan B One Step cause these symptoms.
Having your period confirms you are not pregnant.

Taking the pill was not necessary and taken too late to be effective even if there was a risk for conceiving. From your post, I am assuming there was no vaginal penetration with ejaculation. I doubt any semen remained on your finger.

The heavier than normal flow and spotting a few days later were both caused by taking the pill.

Please consider using some type of birth control on a regular basis. Learn the different options and choose the right one for you.
