My bf and I had unprotected sex right atfer I just ended my period I took plan B pills and the next day I got my period again even though I just had it 3 days earlier. But now I still haven't gotten my period. Is it possible that I'm just late?

Can anyone please help me? I'm thinking I'm just going to get my period really late. Or is it possible that I am pregnant? Answers asap please.

Mkz- you was at the 14th day mark which for most women is the day of ovulation. But you really have nothing to worry about if te condom didnt break and since you are bleeding. Plan b messes up most women's cycles so more than likely that is what caused your period to be late. If you are concerned take a home pregnancy test to rule it out. Best wishes.

I had unprotected sex Sunday morning and took plan b by 1pm the same day. I'm just now on day 14 of my cycle and I started bleeding last night some and this morning some cramping and what seems to be a period now. I was to ovulate within the next couple days. Is this normal? I never bleed in between periods. And do I count this as a period?

What ended up happening with you? Did you get your period and if so what was the date that you got your period? Thank you! :)

Correction: I'm just on day 13 of my cycle. Ovulation probably Sunday Monday or Tuesday of next week. My cycles are always very normal and the same each month. I track :)

I had my periods on 6th of December.I had sex with my bf on 20th of December, he was wearing a condom but he came on me and I took plan B just in case. 6 days later I had been bleeding a lot for 2-3 days and after that I had been bleeding and spotting too for 5-6 days.Right now I'm not bleeding or spotting at all and I don't have any PMS or pregnancy symptoms.My periods supposed to come on 3rd of January but I didn't get them until today and I'm freaking out.

It's more than likely a side effect of the ec pill that you took. I have taken it twice and both times it messed up my cycle. Plan b and the generic brands are very effective the sooner they are taken. Also keep in mine taken DURING ovulation has next to no effect. It does not terminate pregnancy . However since you are having heavy bleeding I doubt it is implantation bleeding because if it was it would be lighter. Keep calm, chances of pregnancy are next to none. I do suggest using condoms to reduce the chance of stds and pregnancy while maybe going to a health dept to get on birth control. Protect yourself and keep in mind ec pills are not to be taken regularly they are for emergencys. Best wishes.

I had unprotected sex about a week & a half ago. The boy didn't ejaculate, but we felt it would be safe to take the pill anyways the following day because he went soft shortly after pulling out. My period went from December 23rd to about the 28th. But here I am a week & a half later with cramps & heavy, period like bleeding throughout the day. Could I be pregnant?

I took the morning after pill and 5 days after I came on my period but I'm 14 days early ?

Hello Anonymous,

That is because you took an emergency contraceptive.
