I finished my period on march 24th and had sex on march 25th in the morning and took an ec within the 72 hours. over the next week had protected sex twice. On april third i experienced bright red blood which then turned more into a brownish red. This brownish red lasted from the 3-10 and then turned into bright red in the mornings (enough to fill my toilet) and then not too much in the afternoons. This lasted till about the 14th. The weekI I was supposed to get my period for april (around the 16th) I tested with hpt and they came back negative. I bleed again from may 10-14. Now my June period is around a week late according to my tracking apps. Im not on bc. I took another hpg which says negative. I feel like ive been experiencing cramps since before my expected period date and my breasts have been feeling tender but that feeling is going away. I have not had sex since before the initial bleeding after the ec. I know that the bleeding is what is supposed to reassure me that ec worked and I am not pregnant but this late period (even though I have not had sex this cycle) and various things I have read online have me going crazy

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Thank you for coming to us with your period concern.

Changes in the menstrual cycle are a side effect of Plan B. Your next period could start earlier or later than expected. However, this should last only one cycle.

Please call and speak with your gynecologist about this. Keep us updated.
