Me and my boyfriend had sex for the first time three days ago. It was a mistake in that we were both intoxicated. He couldn't get hard because he was drunk so he didn't ejacualte and he used a condom. Still, I was very worried the next day. I spent the whole next day freaking out wondering I I was pregnant so I went and bought plan b to be extra safe. I took plan b a little less than 48 hours after we had sex. The day after I took plan b I started bleeding and it seems like I am on my period. I was expecting it to come around this time of the month. However my stomach has been kinda hurting me and I don't know if it is because I am nervous or if it is something else. Is this all normal? what is the likeliness I am pregnant?
He used a condom. Unless the condom slipped off inside you, or burst, or pre-ejaculate/pre-cum got into your vagina, then you weren't going to become pregnant.
The symptoms you are getting are from the massive dose of hormone you've just put into your body! You can't put such a huge dose of that into your body, & not expect to get side effects. This is why Plan b is only used as emergency contraception. It can really mess your periods up for a while. It can cause bleeding, & then your period is likely to be late. It can also give lots of other hormonal symptoms, such as those experienced with a period or when pregnant. It's just a case of waiting for things to settle down again, & your period may be irregular for a couple of months.
If the sex you had had was unprotected (had he not used the condom), then Plan B works by delaying your ovulation. It's thought it might also work in other ways, but they are not guaranteed by the Manufacturer.
If taken within 12 hours, Plan B is said to be around 90% effective. At the latest point it could be taken, which is 72 hours after unprotected sex, it is said to be around 75% effective.
Hope that helps.
