So I have my period on the 12-19th and on the 20th me and my boyfriend had sex and our condom broke, luckily he had plan b in case and i took that immediately. So i took Plan B 10 min after the condom broke after we had sex. 5 days later i get a heavy flow of period, which I am hoping was my period. It wasn't a brownish reddish blood, but it was bright red and there was a lot of blood. After this early period ended, I've had sex countless times after and never broke the condom and only came outside if he didn't use a condom. I'm wondering if I'll receive my period around the 12-19th again like my old period, will i be getting it later, or am i going to miss this month completely?
It's impossible to say as everyone is different.
You can also become pregnant from pre-cum. He doesn't have to ejaculate inside of your vagina. Sexually transmitted diseases are also a risk as soon as his genitals come into contact with yours. He or you can carry an STD without symptoms, but still pass it to each other.
In the case where you took Plan B, you should have been in time to delay your ovulation, but do a pregnancy test to be sure.
Plan B works by delaying your ovulation until the sperm leaves your body. If you're already ovulating then it can't do that. You'd need one of the other methods of emergency contraception; either the other emergency pill called Ulipristal Acetate or to have an IUD fitted by a doctor.
If your periods are always regular then you will likely ovulate somewhere around days 12-17 of your cycle (day 1 is the first day of your period). Your cervical mucus changes in consistency up to 1 week before, in order to save any sperm that enters your vagina, ready for ovulation.
If you are not pregnant, then you cannot rely on that estimate, until your periods become regular again.
If your periods are irregular, then it's impossible to know when you ovulate. Not unless you monitor your fertility signs each day.
Plan B is not as effective as regular hormonal birth control. It's simply worth a try in an emergency. Better than leaving it to chance.
