my boyfriend wasn't in me for more then 45 seconds but I took the pill 4 days later & it seemed to have worked, I took it out of paranoia and got my period 3 days later. it lasted 6 days (my cycle last like 5-6 normally so I wasn't weirded out) also went on Previfem and have been on it for almost a week. I had sex today, the 11th of October since my period ended yesterday and it hurt a lot at first, I was also really tight which isn't that normal and my boyfriend wasn't going hard at first yet i got pain and then stopped getting it when we switched positions. any help?
The Plan B would have been unlikely to do anything after 4 days. It's most effective the sooner you take it, & is only potentially effective at all if used up to 72 hrs (3 days) after unprotected sex.
EllaOne is an emergency contraceptive pill that can be taken up to 5 days (120 hrs) after unprotected sex. There is also the Coil/IUD, which can prevent pregnancy if inserted up to 5 days (120 hrs) after unprotected sex.
The painful sex is likely to be a side effect of Plan B. It's likely you could get hormonal symptoms for a week or two, as Plan B is a massive dose of hormone for your body to adjust to. Those could be symptoms like sore/leaking breasts, back ache, cramps, mood swings, spotting or brown discharge etc.
Your next period could be up to 2 weeks late, & you could get some irregular bleeding before it. All bleeding could also be heavy. That's quite common.
A tip - When the condom is about to be put on his penis, hold the tip. This prevents air getting trapped inside the condom, as you roll it down. If air gets trapped inside, it may lead to the condom bursting during intercourse.
Always hold the base of the condom on the penis as he withdraws. This prevents it accidentally slipping off inside of you.
