If I took a plan B pill 12 hrs after sex and haven't had spotting/side effects does this mean sperm didn't get inside me? (4 days following the pill)
No: plan B is only 59 - 94% effective at preventing pregnancies. This can be affected by the woman's weight, where u r in your menstrual cycle, and if u have unprotected sex afterwards. I don't think there is a way by symptoms to tell if it worked (until u start 2 get symptoms of pregnancy, that is). The safest thing 2 do is 2 use a condom every single time and be on a 2nd form of BC such as the pill ...Read more

I was on birth control pills but I stopped taking them cause they gave me bad side effects now when my period come my stom hurt and I just be spotting?
Ocp effects: One of the beneficial effects of bcps is that they make periods less painful for almost all users of them. They artificially regulate a woman's menstrual cycles. Now that you are off of them, the menses have reverted to their 'normal' (in your case - more painful) state. Just spotting may reflect lower estrogen production by your body naturally, but a sono and some labs would help to rule out probs. ...Read more
