We were using a condom, and after he finished he pulled out, well the condom slipped off and so when I went to grab it, I freaked myself out and thought some of it leaked, so half an hour after having sex I took plan B. That was July 1st, and I'm suppose to have my period July 3rd, today. I keep track of my cycle constantly and closely cause I'm not on the pill anymore. I usually can feel when I get ready to start, like bloating, and I'll have one day where everything irritates me and that was yesterday... And I haven't started yet. We had sex last week, but everything was a-okay, nothing happened then. I'm trying not stress myself out, because I know that can delay a period too. I took plan B last year for the first time when I was on the pill a couple days before my period and I was late by a day. I guess I'm just worrying myself more than I should...
How long does it take to get your period when you take plan B?

I think it really does depend on your body and if at one point you took birth control because I took plan b. However, I didnt get my period for two months almost three and i have irregular periods and also had stopped taking birth control months before
my incident happen.
Well my girl finally got her period after a month, and the plan A should be to use a condom. I am proud to say that i can continue creasing cheeks with protection and i will not be a daddy, just hers.
SO many of us have been there so I want to leave a review to ease some of the panic people will inevitably go through. This stuff works. Had protected sex but the condom broke, took the pill within an hour. The pill made me nauseous slightly which freaked me out but please don't panic if it happens to you as it's normal with a dose of hormones that big! Two days post-pill I started getting pain in my side as if I was ovulating and it continued for 3 days. Got nervous and saw my doc, but she explained that as the pill delays ovulation it can cause pain bc its creating a push on pull on your body. Body wants to release an egg, pill wont let it. My period was due on the 3rd but came on the 10th (longest week of my life). My next period came on the 4th so it in a way caught up to where it should have been. I was not pregnant, thank goodness, but the entire time I stressed myself out beyond comprehension worrying. Stress can also delay a period so trust in the science. You'll be fine if you follow the instructions :)
From my experience, I got my period a week later than my expected period. Thank you God. I also read other forums and same happened to them. Plan B can cause your period to be late... It is normal. I did 3 pregnancy tests and it came out negative. I am gonna do one again tomorrow to make sure.
I had sex on July 8th. I took plan B 3 hours later... I started having a somewhat normal period 1 week later... I had unprotected sex again on July 17th (I know... -_- stupid mistake)... I have been praying for my period to come. My expected period is suppose to be on August 1st... My period came on August 13th... so happy... so please be patient and wait.. it will come... also, please do not have unprotected sex... not good. Learned my lesson.
Plan b can certainly mess up your cycle. You took the Plan b in good time so close to the sexual activity-it should work for you. Try not to worry and stress. Plan b can make you irregular for some time. If you dont have a period by August, do a pregnancy test. Continue to protect yourself with condoms as you have been. If you are thinking that you will be more sexually active, perhaps it is time to think about getting back on the pill (unless you had to stop taking it because you werent doing well on it)? Another thing to consider, if you prefer to stick with condoms, is spermicidal foam or gel along with the condom. The spermicide will help kill sperm in the event of a slip or break of a condom. Hope everything turns out ok for you (and I'm thinking it will be ok)!
