Common Questions and Answers about Delayed period plan b

period

Avatar f tn We thought about getting the Plan B right away, but didn't get the chance til Monday, 72 hours after. I was still on my period when I took Plan B. My period stopped on the 8th/9th but then I got some bleeding a day after. And on the 14th had some really heavy bleeding to the point that I had to wear a pad, like I was on my period. I forgot how long it lasted but i think light to heavy flow stopped on the 18th. Now, my cycle is about 31-33 days...
Avatar f tn had my last period june 19, had unprotected sex june 30, took plan B (morning after pill 16hrs after, i dont have my period until now, should i be worried?
Avatar m tn I took Plan b after 9hrs of unprotected sex. I was expecting my period that week. But since I took the pill I know my period would possibly be late. However since the day I took the pill I saw some blood spots on my underwear. today is my third day since I took the pill and I still see some blood spots. Does this mean I could be pregnant? If not when should I expect my period?
Avatar f tn The site also says that if you are more than a week late, or have not had a period within 3 weeks of taking plan b that you could be pregnant. They are also very clear about the effectiveness in women who are overweight. They warn that plan B is less effective in women that weigh 165+ lbs. and is NOT effective in women weighing 176+ lbs. If your weight is above 165 lbs there is a chance that the medication might not have been able to work for you.
Avatar f tn I'm assuming the P2 pills are like Plan B? If so, then no wonder you're having issues with your period. As it states in the package instructions that came with the pills, you should expect an impact on your bleeding cycle when you take it. Since you've taken it twice in a short amount of time, you've thrown off your normal menstrual cycle and it's going to take a while to get back on track. You should not be using Plan B as birth control.
Avatar m tn Yes there's always a chance of pregnancy if you're having unprotected sex, however if you had sex a day before your period, it's very unlikely, if you mean by contraceptive pill you mean plan B, it can cause very irregular cycles and symptoms, so wait 2 weeks from the unprotected sex and take a HPT it should be positive by then. If you're not trying to get pregnant you need to use some form of BC, Plan B is very bad for your cycles/reproductive system and shouldn't be used as BC. Good luck!
Avatar f tn Hi I had unprotected sex a month ago. Took plan b 9hours later and got my period five days after. I'm waiting for my second period but I'm very nervous and I know its going to be delayed. However I feel bubbles in my stomach constantly and idk if its nerves or if I could actually be pregnant:( What do you all think?
Avatar f tn 30 pm, putting me at 69 hrs post sex. I'm not sure if the pill is working or not. I havent really had any symptoms. Its been 10 days since i took the pill. Hopefully my cycle starts soon though... Anyone gotten pregnant off the pill even with taking it within 72hrs? I don't know when to expect my next cycle as I'm sure its thrown off now. Thanks.

Avatar f tn days 5 to 11 says is fertile and the ovulation date was the 11...I had sex on the 10 and took the plan b pill 11...when should I get my period if I took the pill???
Avatar f tn I had unprotected sex the 10 and took the plan b pill the 11...I havent got my perios again or any changes with the pill..should I be worry??
Avatar f tn I got pregnant off the plan B pill, you need to be careful and use protection because it's not reliable and even then there is still a chance, I was on the mini pill, used a condom (it broke) and took the plan b and here I am 22 weeks pregnant
Avatar n tn Hi there, Yes! Absolutely. Plan B does affect your period for at least one if not two or three cycles. Plan B is a hefty dose of hormones taken to shock the system (how pregnancy is prevented) so needless to say, those same hormones are going to affect how your cycle. Use good protection because you don't know when you may ovulate.
Avatar f tn I don´t feel the sympthoms of getting my period soon so i guess it´s delayed due to plan B. Did my cycle started again on 1 march, when I had my bleeding for 2 days? If so then I would have had an ovulation around 14 march, but I didn´t feel like having an ovulation at all. Instead I have side effects of this pill like a bloated stomach, light cramps, headaches, mood swings. So I think I did not have any ovulation, but when will it start again?
Avatar n tn I was worried this might cause me to get pregnant (Plan B could have delayed my ovulation to around then). However, I then got my period on Oct 17. It lasted about 5 days. 2 heavy days, 3 days light/spotting. What I found really strange was, after my period ended I had some light spotting on oct 26/27 and my PMS symptoms never went away. I still have tender breasts, cramping, headaches, mood swings etc. Also, my lower abdomin seems swollen/enlarged.
Avatar f tn Yes, plan b can cause unexpected bleeding or delay the next period. You might wanted to google "plan b delayed period" and read through the stories. The official word from the manufacturer is that it can delay it a little and cause some spotting, but the word from users is that they experience MUCH more variability/much later periods/much more bleeding than the manufacturer says. Best wishes.
Avatar f tn The spotting could be a delayed side effect of the Plan B or it could be pregnancy spotting. I would wait for your period and if it's late by even a day, take a test.
Avatar n tn a change in menstrual periods is an important side effect of Plan B pill. With Plan B, the periods should be delayed. The periods should come within 7 days of the expected date. If the periods are delayed by more than 7 days, then please ask your girlfriend to consult her doctor and get serum HCG done. I hope it helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional doubts. Kind regards.
Avatar m tn Probably from the Plan B. Unless your condoms broke you shouldn't have used it - it's not meant to be used that way and should NEVER be used habitually. (in fact you're not supposed to use it more than 2x a year) If you're concerned about pregnancy do NOT let him touch you without having protection on.
Avatar m tn Hi there! Plan B is highly effective in preventing a pregnancy if taken within the recommended time. This may be followed by bleeding, following which the initial few periods may be early or delayed. This is an expected effect and should not be anything to worry about. Hope this helps. Take care!
Avatar f tn My bf and i had unprotected sex 3 times within a 7 hour period and i took plan b around the 30 hour mark of the first sexual encounter. I have been getting weird symptoms ever since i took the pill. I have had period like cramps, discharge and some stomach pains. My period is somewhat irregular so i'm not sure when my period might start so it is stressing me out. Has anyone had these type symptoms before? What are the chances that i am pregnant?
Avatar f tn I took plan b feb 12 it stoped my period then a couple days later I got it again for only 3_4 days. Its march 28 and I havent gotten my period this month. How long does plan be affect your cycle? Is this normal? Or should I be worried. ? Obviously im to young to be haveing sexual intercourse if im being way to paranoid. Im 17. Please help!
Avatar f tn Now the spotting has gone away and there have been no signs of my actual period. I'm just wondering if this is a normal result after taking the Plan B emergency contraceptive and if this has happened to anyone else in the past... I don't know if my period is late because of the pill or because of pregnancy and it's really starting to scare and stress me out. I know that one day late is a little early to be worrying but my period is usually very punctual.
Avatar n tn So now, It has been 66 days since my contraceptive failure and about 63 days since the start of my period(or bleeding- if not my period.) after taking the emergency contraceptive pill. I have enough stress in my life right now because we are trying to sell our home, raising two kids etc, I don't need anymore! I'm seriously thinking about having my tubes tied If I'm not pregnant, cause I don't want to go through this again. Am I pregnant or not?
1354136 tn?1331878917 Hello board, I was just wondering when is the earliest I can take a pregnancy test after taking Plan B? My period is due to arrive on Nov. 28th, and I took Plan B on Nov. 9. When is the soonest I can take a test? Do I wait til I miss my period or is there a certain amount of time? Thanks!

Avatar f tn (Your next ovulation will most likely occur on Wednesday, Jun-16-2010. Your fertile days are between Sunday, Jun-13-2010 and Friday, Jun-18-2010.) I took a Plan B pill this morning within 12 hours of intercourse. I know they say Plan B is effective in preventing ovulation, but what if you are ovulating? How does it work then, and is it still effective? Has anyone else dealt with this?
