I took Plan B in the 40hrs. I'm expecting my period next week, no spotting occure., can Plan B effect when my period cycle starts?
Yes it will: Anyone having intercourse without birth control or condoms may get pregnant. If intercourse was within 72 hours you consider taking plan b. Ella (ulipristal acetate) is another brand that can be used up to 5 days after unprotected intercourse. Plan b is a high dose of birth control to disrupt the hormonal patterns to delay or prevent ovulation. Abnormal bleeding after is common. Check preg test in 10 days. ...Read more
I had received a depo shot 9 days ago, and had unprotected sex on the 9th day. So I took a plan b. Will the plan b effect the depo shot?
Protection from what: It turns out that regular Depo-Provera shots every 3mo is very effective at preventing pregnancy. It's not 100% effective but as close as we can get if you get shot in timely manner. So Plan B emergency contraception isn't necessary nor will it affect Depo-Provera. But no hormonal birth control protects against sexually transmitted diseases/infections. That's why condom use is still necessary, too ...Read more
I had 2 incidents where I had to take plan b. They happened in dec and jan. Can Plan B effect my period this month? I've been on bc for 2 1/2 months
BC + Plan B?: If you are already on birth control pills, then I assume you missed a pill or two, and that's why you took plan b? Yes, Plan B can affect your periods, but that is less likely if you are on birth control pills already. If you miss a period, or your period doesn't seem right, then take a home pregnancy test to be safe. They are accurate 14 days after intercourse. Good luck! ...Read more
Maybe: If you took Plan B while on your regular birth control pills, it's possible that it will have no effect on your period. But usually we do see an effect on subsequent natural-cycle periods after emergency contraception. It can make them come early, late, or just make them different. I'd play it by ear, but take a pregnancy test if you don't have a normal period. ...Read more

Yes, it can change: Yes, Plan B can cause some irregular bleeding after use. A neg preg test taken 2 weeks after unprotected sex should be positive if you are pregnant. If you have two tests neg., that's reassuring it thru were taken 2 weeks after sex. PlanB is very effective as emergency BC, and most effective eithin the 1st 24hrs after sex. You should be just fine. Keep track of your cycles. ...Read more
