Had sex on the 16th. Took Plan B on 18th. Took pregnancy test 29th(negative). She started to bleed (spotting). Is she ok? She usually ha heavy periods
Likely, yes: Better would have been to take Plan B on the 16th, but hindsight is 20/20 isn't it! if pregnancy test on 29th was negative, likely she's not pregnant. Spotting can sometimes be a sign of early pregnancy, so she should take another test in 4-6 days to make sure not pregnant. Or maybe full period will come in the meantime.

Can a girl be pregnant if she has had a period twice? She has had her period twice in the past two months on during the times she was supposed to have her period, and they were heavy periods.
Having : Having normal, regular periods makes pregnancy unlikely, but not impossible. If there is any doubt, you might as well check with a test. As doctors, anytime a fertile, sexually active woman has an abnormally light or missed period, the first thing we do is rule out pregnancy. You can either take another home pregnancy test as long as it has been 5- 6 weeks since your last normal period, or you can go see your doctor and they can test you. A home pregnancy test is 97% accurate if taken a week or more after the missed period, so another negative test would help confirm that you are not pregnant. A blood test can tell if you are pregnant as soon as 7 days after conception and a doctor's urine pregnancy test can tell if you are pregnant around when you next period should come. ...Read more

Unprotected sex risk: There is always a chance that having unprotected sex with or without ejaculating, with or without Plan B, and with or without 6 and 12 day periods can result in pregnancy. That's the only thing anyone can GUARANTEE about the natural order of men mating with women. All the rest is a crapshoot and just depends on how much risk you're willing to take for either your or someone else's pleasure. ...Read more

Maybe: If you didn't prevent pregnancy, you may be pregnant. You can take a home pregnancy test, do it about one week after the period was supposed to come.

I been on trinessa bcp for a month now. During green pills I've had very heavy periods for 6 days. Usually change tampon every 2 3 hrs. Is this normal?
A little heavy: That's quite a bit of bleeding while on a birth control pill. You may try mononessa or another "monophasic" pill. This means that the dose of hormone in the pills does not change throughout the month. It stays consistent until the green pills, when your period is to arrive. Right now you are on a triphasic pill, which your body doesn't seem to do well with. Speak to your doctor about changing. ...Read more
