My last period was on December 9 and ended on the 14. I had unprotected sex on Dec. 23 on the day of my ovulation and I wasn't sure if my boyfriend cmd inside me. After having sex a few hours that day I was feeling nausea and my stomach was hurting. Three days later I had brown discharge for two days straight and it was light. On the 26th I took plan B (within 72 hours) and this was my first time taking plan B. On January 4-5 all of a sudden I had a really sharp pain in my stomach and feeling really nauseous . On the 6th that's when I started my period but I had brown discharge instead of my period. The discharge last three days then the last to days it was light redred, then ended on the 11th. Throughout those six's days my stomach hurted so bad, craving but then again loss of appreciate, headaches, body aches, had a running and stuffy nose, mood swings, had got acne out of no where. Til today nothing has changed.

Hi, Anon.

Thanks for reaching out to us.

Taken within 72 hours after unprotected sex, Plan B can reduce the risk of pregnancy by up to 89%. Taken within 24 hours, it is about 95% effective. Side effects include nausea, lower abdominal pain, fatigue, headache, dizziness and breast tenderness. There may or may not be spotting or bleeding. Some women may have changes in their period, a heavier or lighter next period, or a period that is early or late. If you took the pills within 72 hours (and before you ovulated) it should have worked. You will know that you did not become pregnant once you have bleeding or your next period, (which you say you had). If you doubt this, the only way to be sure is to take a home pregnancy test.
