I took plan B on July 23rd (about 72 hours late), got my period the next weekend around July 28th and had a light period for a few days (it seemed sorter than usual). Then just recently started bleeding again around August 4th. At first it was just kind of spotty, until last night when it got much heavier. I've also been having some strange abdominal pains that seem different from cramps. Do you know what the cause could be? Is this a sign of miscarriage? Or could it be related to plan B? Thanks

No, Plan b wont terminate a pregnancy if it has already occured before you take the drug. It is likely just the Plan b screwing up your system. Plan b is a large dose of hormones and can screw up your cycle for months after you take it. You can expect all kinds of weird irregularities. Things should straighten out in a few months and you will become regular again.

So what ever happen in your situation "katblack500"??? My girlfriend is going through EXACTLY the same symptoms and we are worried. We just want a bit of reassurance so let me know what resulted in your case. Did it go away after a few more months. Were you pregnant? Or was it just still side effects from the Plan B pill. Please respond. I know the usual answer to go to the doctor and she is. She has an appointment in a few weeks but we just want to know what happen with you for now.
I added you as a friend so I could ask you about this. Can you add me back?

I had an incident and This was previous December 28, 2013. It was 1:00 in the morning and I decided to have unprotected sex with my boyfriend. We had been using the pull out method ( I know very careless ) and this time he got a little too excited and ejaculated inside of me. I was really scared and so that same afternoon on the 28th around 2:00 p.m, I went and got the plan b pill. My period was due on the 1st of January and I thought I was pregnant because it didn't come right away. I had all off the symptoms I would experience when my period would come, but it never came I stressed myself out and cried for days and FINALLY JANUARY 5, 2014 , aunt flow paid me a visit and im so very happy. Ladies DO NOT stress yourself out. Give it time.If it's more than a week late please go and take a pregnancy test to be sure. But , the pill worked for me. Just pray and dont let the mistakes happen again, learn from them.
