When I just got off my period last month my boyfriend and I had sex before I took my regular birth control; he came inside me. I took the plan b one step 12 hours later. I have yet to have a period I am 12 days late but the tests say negative. Has anyone else had a severely late period after taking the plan b one step?
If you are on birth control pills or Nuva Ring, you are still protected even during your period week when you are taking inactive pills or the ring is out so it is not necessary to take Plan b if you have sex during this time. Plan b can make you very irregular for months after taking it.
I take tri-sprintec i have taken this pill for 5 years now. Usually after i stop taking the pill i bleed two days after since im so used to the hormones. But now im going on 2 weeks with out a period! Also i dont take the last week of pills since the doctor told me i really didnt have to and those were sugar pills. I am also not taking birth control at the moment just in case i am.
