My period had ended on the 1st of July and I had unprotected sex on the 2nd. No ejaculation but I took plan b one step within 36 hours of intercourse. There was withdrawal bleeding after a week. On the 22nd of July I had unprotected sex and he came inside me. I took postinor 2 within 6-8 hours of intercourse and according to the pharmacist the second tablet is supposed to be taken 10 hours later which I did. It's been a week since my period is due, on the 28th of July. It hasn't come yet. Around a week late. Not sure if I should get a pregnancy test done or if Its just due to the pills. Having nausea and diarrhea and stomach cramps.

Just posting this since I went to forums like this when I was in this situation! Took the morning after pill twice in one month; took the first pill and got the “fake” period a couple days later then took another pill a few days after that and also got the fake period again. My period was late, took 3 pregnancy tests (one every week) all negative. Period finally came and was about 30 days late so I basically missed one whole period! Morning after pills really do f up your menstrual cycle, so don’t worry if your period doesn’t come. I would take a pregnancy test just in case though and if that comes up negative then it is most likely right you will just have to wait for your period to come!

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER.

There was no need to take Plan B since your period ended on July 1 and you would not have been ovulating on July 2.

You should never take an emergency contraceptive more than once in a one month menstrual cycle. The pill prevents pregnancy by preventing ovulation.

You have upset the hormonal balance that regulates your menstrual cycle.

You can speak with your gynecologist o just wait it out.
