So 2 days later I bought Plan B . It's been 5 days and we had sex again and the condom broke again! But I started bleeding that same . I believe this is my period coming early? I'm not sure if to take plan b again since I just started my period? Any advice ?
Plan B is for emergencies, as it's a huge dose of hormone for your body, & is not as reliable as regular hormonal birth control.
As you waited 2 days before taking it, there will be a slightly higher chance of pregnancy than if you'd taken it within the first 12 hours. It's therefore possible that the blood you are experiencing is implantation bleeding from pregnancy. Alternatively, it could just be the Plan B. You're not going to know until you miss the start of your next period & can do a pregnancy test.
Plan B can mess your cycle up for a while, so it's hard to predict how much you'll bleed or when.
What you could do is have an IUD/Coil fitted, instead of another Plan B. A doctor can do this for you, within 5 days of unprotected sex.
It's worth reading up on correct condom use, as there are ways to stop them breaking.
If you decide to take another Plan B, you could find that you get lots of hormonal symptoms. It's up to you. You're not covered by the last Plan B for this session of unprotected sex. You might also want to get checked out for STDs.
