My last period started around June 7th and lasted about 5 days. I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend towards the very last day of my period where I still had some discharge. We had unprotected sex 3 times that day within about 3 hours and each time he pulled out. About 30-60 mins afterwards I took plan b and a couple of days later on fathers day experienced bleeding kind of like a period. However my period was supposed to start today (July 5th) and it is not here yet. Could I be pregnant? Ive been really sick lately. I also had unprotected sex like 5 days ago but he pulled off the condom and pulled out.
Pulling out is NOT birth control method. If you don't want to get pregnant, stop having unprotected sex. Get on a reliable birth control. Plan B is not meant to be used as regular birth control. Its not as effective. What you're experiencing now is side effects from taking plan B, including delayed period. Its a large dose of hormones at once and it causing side effects.
Okay, what is being said here is that men leak sperm, thousands of sperm, long before they ejaculate (or cum). They cannot feel this leakage and they cannot control it either so even if he pulls out before ejaculation, you have still been exposed to sperm whether he came inside you or not! Got it? There is NO WAY POSSIBLE to be sure that you are not exposed to sperm except by wearing a condom and using spermicides from start to finish, meaning no penetration without a condom OR you can use a reliable form of hormonal birth control that will stop ovulation. Plan b only delays ovulation a few days, it wont terminate a pregnancy already in progress and if you have already ovulated, it doesnt do much of anything. This is what makes it so unreliable. Your best option to avoid pregnancy is to get on regular birth control pills, or some other form of hormonal birth control like Implanon/Nexplanon, Nuva Ring, Depo shots etc. These methods of birth control when used properly stop ovulation altogether. If you dont ovulate, you cant get pregnant no matter how much sperm you are exposed to. If you keep on the way you are, taking chances with pulling out, you will be pregnant soon! The only way to know for sure if you are pregnant is to test once you are at least a week late and with the first morning pee. If that test is negative, wait another week, if your period hasnt shown, do another, if that one is negative, it is more than likely the Plan b disrupting your cycle. It should return to normal by next month. In the meantime, contact your gynecologist or local family planning clinic to see about getting some regular birth control!
