plan b, late/missed period

well. i took Plan B twice in one month (mid-June), within a little more than a week apart. I started my last period July 3-July 8. I haven't had my August cycle yet so i'm starting to worry. I've read it may cause the cycle to be 2 weeks late at most, but still worried because i took it twice in one month. Can someone give me some answers or weight lifted off of me, something?! Thank you!:)

Okay, so my story is a little complicated...

I got my last period on July 21st, and it lasted 7 days, I wasn't aware that if a woman's period is 7 or 8 days long that she ovulates about 5 days after her period. So me and my boyfriend had unprotected sex 5 days after my period which was Tuesday August 2nd, and again the following day. I took plan B that Friday (August 5th) 2 hours before the 72 hour time limit. But then we had unprotected sex again this past Wednesday (August 10th)

I was wondering if his sperm fertilized my egg before I took the plan B pill on Friday whether I the pill would have failed or not. And if the pill did work what my chances are of getting pregnant from having unprotected sex this past Wednesday.

Anyone with with information or experience, please help me, it would be much appreciated!

If the test came out negative then the chances of you being pregnant are very slim. Especially if you are just scared because of the precum. Precum doesn't actually contain sperm needed to fertilize the egg. But anyway, when I took plan b before, my period was much shorter than usual. It affects women's cycles in different ways. Unless you had unprotected sex again after taking the first plan b pill, I wouldn't worry about it.

My girlfriend finally got her period a few days. It was a little over a week late. If you're still waiting for your period, try to relax! It will come eventually! Best of luck to everyone!

So My Story Is That Me And My Boyfriend Had Sex Like A Little Over A Week After My Period Had Ended On June 29th And While We Were Having Sex He Pulled Out And We Saw Some White Stuff But He Said He Didn't Cum. We kept On Having Sex, I Took The Plan B Pill On July 2. I Got My Period Like Around The 22nd Of July, My Period Usually Comes On The 17th But Now Its August 17th And I'm Feel Nausea, And Pains In My Stomach, Could I Be Pregnant? I'm Only 18 And I Really Can't Deal With This Right Now.

Like an idiot I had unprotected sex and we used the withdrawal method. My last period was on July 11 and the sex happened on August 7. so i knew my period would be coming soon. I took a generic form of Plan B on the last day of the 72 hours and I am now 9 days late for my period. I am freaking out and do not know what to do. If anyone can help me i would really appreciate it.

Just wanted to share my experience with plan b. I had sex on 26th of June and the condom broke! I Realized that I was right around the time of ovulation and flipped out. Rushed out and took the pill 5 hours after and the next pill 12 hours after that. I felt tired for about two days and my breast hurt horribly. Got my period two days earlier and everything was normal. The following month I was almost two weeks late. Called the doctor around 8 days late and was told to take a test just to make sure but that It is very comman and the company should really included that on their possible side effects. I hope this helps people who are looking for some reassurance! good luck!

Hey Guys i have read many of your post and i would like to say a few things. I was in the same position as many of you. I took plan B after having sex with my BF and my period was 11 days LATE. I was spotting and had some of the same symptoms as if i was pregnant. I was freaking OUT and I can tell some are you as well. TAKE IT EASY. TIME WILL TELL YOU. The more you stress the more delayed you period will get. I even herd that you may even skip a month due to plan b. So don't worry !
