- plan b, pain, period, ovulation, condom
So on Sept 7th (2 days before my ovulation date) condom broke and he finished inside me. I took plan b the next day, I felt like period cramping and a head ache nothing crazy. I also noticed that I didn't have any clear ovulation discharge after taking the pill either so I assume it stopped the ovulation process. 5 days later I had a little spotting and the next day I bled as if I had a full on period. It calmed down the next day and went into spotting and stop on sept 16th (total of 3 days). I was like hmmm ok could be from the pill. But now a day after that I have a pelvic pain kind of feels like it's pulling cramp and I did have constipation, I'm not sure if this is from the pill and I'm very confused, worried, and I'm stressing myself out bc all I could think about is if the pill didn't work !? Hopefully someone could help me out or give me advice
Thank you !!!
You used the wrong emergency contraceptive. Plan B works by delaying your ovulation until the sperm leaves your body. If you're already ovulating then it can't do that. By the time you took Plan B you may well have been too late to stop ovulation. You'll have to wait & see. You might have been lucky.
In that situation 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 within 5 days/120 hours of the unprotected sex.
Plan B can cause pain, but so can other things. If the pain is severe you need to get checked out by a doctor. It could be an ectopic pregnancy, where the pregnancy forms in the fallopian tube. This is unlikely, but a possibility.
From what you've said it sounds like the severe cramping that Plan B can cause.
Do a pregnancy test in a couple of weeks to be sure, regardless of any bleeding you get in the meantime. It's possible to bleed but still be pregnant.
