I had unprotected sex with my partner and 12 hours later I took the plan b pills. I started feeling some side effects from it but I started bleeding days later as if I was on my period also. Is that normal ? It's been a month ever since and I've been getting so hungry and tired lately. What are the chances of still being pregnant ?

Plan b works pretty well to prevent unwanted pregnancy after unprotected sex, IF it is used properly, and it sounds like you took it well within the recommended time frame for best use. It does interrupt or change your cycle, it is a dose of hormones, and those can take a month or 2 to level back out. Some women bleed early, some skip a cycle and freak, but really you probably are ok. You can purchase pregnancy tests in single double or triple packs and if you are worried, and your period due date has already passed, take a test, to ease your mind. Best of luck, patti
