I am not on any birth control and I had sex with my boyfriend and he came inside of me, unplanned. So the next night I took the pill, the day after we had sex again and he did it again! Would the pill still affect anything after? I kind of started my period on the planned day, had cramping I'm on "day 4" but the last two days of my period it has only been spotting if any bleeding, which is not normal for my cycle. Could I be pregnant or is this normal after taking "take action"?
Plan B would not protect you against pregnancy, for any unprotected sex that occurred after taking it. That's certainly the official line, anyway.
An old thread, but I'll reply in case anyone else finds it useful.
It is normal to get all sorts of hormonal symptoms for a couple of weeks after using Plan B. It is a huge dose of hormone for your body to handle/process, & should only be used in total emergency.
It depends where you are in your cycle as to what symptoms you experience after taking Plan B. Sometimes you'll bleed, sometimes you won't. It is common that your next period will come up to a week or two late, & that before that, you might get irregular bleeding, which may even be heavy. or could be just a brown discharge or spotting.
You may feel very hormonal for a couple of weeks after using Plan B. It's a massive dose of hormone for your body to take, & therefore it should be used as little as possible. You may experience side effects such as sore breasts, bleeding, back ache, cramping, bloating, mood swings, depression etc.
