Hi. I just wanted to share my situation and see if there were other women out there who may be going through the same thing.
I took Plan B One-Step about six weeks ago after an unprotected incident. I say incident because it was just really brief unprotected penetration that lasted <30 seconds. I panicked as my period tracker indicated that I was in my "fertile window" and due to ovulate soon. I purchased the pill and took it the following morning about 17/18 hours later. I was hesitant to take it, given its many side effects, but had worked myself up to go through with it just in case. I was fine after taking it, no symptoms. I was an absolute emotional MESS though. My anxiety was out of control and I ended up losing about 13 lbs throughout the experience. I was depressed and constantly upset. And this was from a situation that was already unlikely to cause pregnancy to begin with.
Anyway, I started experiencing some PMS type symptoms just over a week after ingesting the pill--slight cramps and hot flashes. The cramps were strange for me. They were concentrated in my pelvic region and felt like my pelvis was on fire. Normally I have just back cramps. My period ended up starting on June 7--two days earlier than I was anticipating--and was a totally normal period. I experienced heavier clotting than normal, but it was otherwise a completely regular period for me. Lasted 5 days, started out light and got progressively heavier, then ended lightly. Mind you, I was experiencing SEVERE anxiety during this time. There was one day I had to call in to work because I couldn't even get out of bed from depression. It took another week after my period had ended for the anxiety to calm down. I went on with the rest of my month as usual. Perfectly happy that I had gotten through that experience and ready to move on with life and make better choices about my health and sex life.
My boyfriend and I have not had sex since this incident, which occurred on Memorial Day 2015. Therefore, it has been six weeks since this all went down. My period tracker said I was due to start back on my period again July 4--estimating a normal 28 day cycle, which is typically normal for me. However, here I am on day 33 after my post Plan B period and I have no sign of it. No PMS, no spotting, nothing. I have two negative pregnancy tests that were taken on days 30 and 31 using First Response. At this point, I'd be considered 8 weeks pregnant and that should show up on a urine test. I have no symptoms of pregnancy either aside from a missed 2nd period. I'm really frustrated. That time was really dark for me and the amount of anxiety I experienced was so beyond unhealthy. I am really trying not to worry myself too much at this point, as it is still highly unlikely that I am pregnant. Last night I began experiencing sore breasts. Nothing too insane, but just slightly tender and heavier feeling. I noticed my cervical fluids were thick and white/cloudy in color. I think that is normal, as I have noticed it before. I just want to know if anyone else has had an experience similar to this one. Normal period after Plan B One-Step and the next one was late to the party or a no-show?
