Day 2 of placebo pills (normally begin period on day 3) when during sex the condom slipped off took Plan B and still got period on time.whats wrong?

Nothing is wrong!: Good news! Nothing is wrong! If you are taking birth-control pills and haven't missed any days, you are unlikely to get pregnant even without a condom. Also, since your period started on time, you are not pregnant. Your body is doing what its supposed to do during the placebo pills. Your back-up plan didn't work but your primary contraception method is still functioning. Best wishes! ...Read more

Took plan b 5 weeks ago, and still no period, just a tiny bit of spotting for two days the day my period was due, pregnancy test is negative?

Tests are accurate: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, vaginal spotting, or medications. A test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened) or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a negative result may be due to testing too early such as less than 2 weeks after conception. ...Read more

I took the Plan B pill three weeks ago and then started what seemed a period two weeks ago, i'm still bleeding very heavyly. What's going on?

Check preg test: First step is to check a pregnancy test and confirm that Plan B worked. If positive you will need to see your doctor right away. If negative then schedule a routine visit to discuss more effective birth control and options that would help with menstrual cycle control. The first period after Plan B is often a little off. Many patients take Ibuprofen to help with cramping and to cut down bleeding. ...Read more

No and yes: No because morning after pills use an absurd amount of synthetic hormones and chemicals to knock you uterus into not getting pregnant, your period is being prolonged for that reason. Extra hormones mean longer bleeding. Though why you took plan B while menstruating I cannot say. You cannot get pregnant while you are bleeding. It doesn't work. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap. ...Read more

Took Plan B & started bleeding a week later it was not her period cuz it only lasted 2 days. Is this abnormal, she still has not gotten her period.

Took Plan B & started bleeding a week later it was not her period cuz it only lasted 2 days. Is this abnormal, she still has not gotten her period.

Typical with Plan B: Plan b essentially disrupts the normal menstrual cycle by blocking or delaying ovulation. That it is how it works and why it is so different than a medical abortion. Irregular bleeding after taking Plan B is not rare. Always check a pregnancy test after using Plan B and see a doctor to start a better form of birth control. You need a better plan than this. ...Read more

Took plan b 2 wks before expected period & bled after 5 days. Is a neg. preg. test still accurate if taken on the day of previously expected period?

Took plan b 2 wks before expected period & bled after 5 days. Is a neg. preg. test still accurate if taken on the day of previously expected period?

Can retest in 1 week: Today's home pregnancy tests are very accurate, but if done too early, a negative result may be due to testing too soon. A correctly done urine test will give a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (when conception might have happened) or 1 week after missing a period. A woman can repeat the test if she did the first test too early, such as less than two weeks after conception. ...Read more

I recently took a Plan B pill, and my period is supposed to be next week. Will my period still be next week, or will Plan B interfer with my period?

It might interfere: Anyone having intercourse without birth control or condoms may get pregnant. If intercourse was within 72 hours you consider taking plan b. Plan b is a high dose of birth control to disrupt the hormonal patterns to delay or prevent ovulation. Abnormal bleeding after is common. Cycles may be late, early or on time. Check preg test in 10 days. ...Read more
