I had unprotected sex (very stupid I know) on the 7th of this month, a day before my period was supposed to start. The next day(when my period was supposed to start) about 14 hours after the unprotected sex i took the plan b pill. My period did not start that day, and it is now five days later and I have still not gotten my period. I have been stressing out a lot lately and i know that can cause it to be late along with the plan b pill. i know if I don't get it within a weeks time I should take a home pregnancy test(which are considered the most accurate?) Any help to any of this would be much appreciated!
It is probably the Plan b throwing off your cycle. Plan b is pretty notorious for delaying ones period and may make you irregular for several months. If you just had sex on the 7th of Feb then it is too early to do a pregnancy test. You need to wait at least a month. If you don't have a period by mid-March then you should test. More than likely you are fine. you took Plan b in good time to prevent pregnancy. If you are going to be sexually active, you should get yourself on the Pill or something as reliable. There are a lot of good options out there. Plan b isn't birth control and should not be used as birth control. Too many girls tend to think "OK, I can go ahead and have unprotected sex now and then I can just take a morning after pill (Plan b or one of those) and everything will be ok" Why put yourself through this kind of anxiety. It is much better to take daily hormones to prevent pregnancy than take a huge blast of hormones like Plan b. The time to think about contraception is before sex-it is much better to prevent pregnancy in the first place rather than try to avoid pregnancy after sex. Any OTC pregnancy test should be accurate enough but you need to wait at least another month. Taking it in one week is too early and wont be accurate to detect a pregnancy that may have occurred on the 7th.
This same thing is happening to me right now, did you end up getting your period later?? If so how much later. I am usually very regular I am freaking out.
