I took plan b and got my period, but this month I haven't gotten it when I usually would is the plan b delaying my period? When can I take a preg test

Home pregnancy test: Take a home pregnancy test if 1) you engage in unprotected sex AND 2) your period is late. Plan B & other forms/brands of emergency contraception can throw off timing of your menses. Be sure to use some form of birth control each & every time - condoms can also decrease risk of sexually transmitted diseases. ...Read more

Cycle is 29 days. I took plan b last day of period, spotted 2 days after for 5 days. My period is 2 days late. When can I take a preg test?

Now: if your period is 2 days late, you can do a pregnancy test now and repeat it in 3-5 days to be sure. Now would be a good time to look into starting a more reliable method of contraception so you spare yourself this worry in the future. Best wishes. ...Read more

7 days after period: The earliest you could take your pregnancy test with accurate results would be about 7 days after the beginning of your period. So if your period started on Jan 28th you could take the pregnancy test on Feb 7 and/or Feb 8 for the best results. Of course if you have your period anytime now and the 7th of Feb a pregnancy test would not be necessary. ...Read more

Had protected sex on Monday (3 days ago). Period was supposed to start Monday. Period 3 days late now. Will Plan B still work? When to take preg test?

Had protected sex on Monday (3 days ago). Period was supposed to start Monday. Period 3 days late now. Will Plan B still work? When to take preg test?

Protected sex?: Protected sex means no pregnancy worries. But if still very worried, one can call her doctor today to see if Ella (ulipristal acetate) (a different pill) is available, or if one can get an IUD placed today. With an IUD, one can stop worrying about Plan B in the future. A urine pregnancy test, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred) or 1 week after missing a period. ...Read more

I took preg test , said I wasn't preg. Had safe sex, but my period is late . But I did take a Plan B test yesterday after unsafe sex?

I took preg test , said I wasn't preg. Had safe sex, but my period is late . But I did take a Plan B test yesterday after unsafe sex?

Test or pill ?: How late is your period? Some variation in cycle length is normal. If you took the plan B within 24 hours after the unsafe sex it will be 95% effective but you can expect it to upset your period. Sounds like you need to start a more reliable method of safe sex and use condoms to decrease the risk of STDs. When in doubt repeat the pregnancy test. Good luck. ...Read more
