Took plan b during ovulation now I have tender swollen breasts, hungry, emotional, tired, increased discharge and bloated. Did it fail?

Took plan b during ovulation now I have tender swollen breasts, hungry, emotional, tired, increased discharge and bloated. Did it fail?

Hard to guess: Plan B works regardless of ovulation, or broken condoms, or ejaculations into vaginas. Plan B can alter the menstrual bleeding for the cycle in which Plan B was taken, and sometimes the next cycle too, so there may be some irregular spotting. One should be sure to check a home pregnancy test about 3 weeks after sex, because Plan B works most of the time, but not all the time. ...Read more

I have sore, swollen breasts. Veins poping out all the time, aereola larger than normal. No change during periods. C?

I have sore, swollen breasts. Veins poping out all the time, aereola larger than normal. No change during periods. C?

Normal finding: I am amazed about how often I have women ask me about the veins on their breast. Occasionally they are spider veins but mostly they are blue veins. These are almost always normal findings and normal variations of chest veins. They tend to be more pronounced in fair skinned females. Your symptoms may be normal, genetic, hormonal or even related to pregnancy. See your Ob or Vein Specialist. ...Read more

Ekg done 2 days ago ovulation about to begin having rib pain I guess from breast swelling how accurate is an ekg?

Not at all: In EKG should still be accurate. If there is a significant amount of tissue (for example if someone is obese or has very significant swelling), then the lead conduction will be reduced, but the overall picture should not change. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Some: Some women do get cramping and swelling of breasts in-between periods. You are exactly right, it could be ovulation, but ovulation usually does occur just once in most women. Hormone swings for other reasons can cause these symptoms as well however. ...Read more

Sex: July 13, period: July 16 (shorter by 2-3 days). it is August 7th now. I have swollen breasts and 2 negative preg tests. Can I be prego still?

Doubtful!: Although we never say never in medicine it would be very unlikely. First, the timing of sex and the period favors no pregnancy. Secondly, home pregnancy tests are very accurate today. The fact that you have had 2 negative tests is very predictive. If no pregnancy is wanted use protection. Good luck and take care. ...Read more

Unclear question: If you had sex since your last period and you miss your period by 4-5 days, do a home pregnancy test. If the result is negative repeat the test 4-5 days later unless you get a period by then. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully.
If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.
Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Can I be pregnant: It is now july 4th. If you have not had your period yet, then it is time to test. I would hope for you that you are not pregnant given your age. If you have no access to health care please contact planned parenthood. They can test you, give you your exam for your first prenatal visit. They can also teach you about periods and how to prevent pregnancy. At 19 you should know the basics of menses. ...Read more
