We had protected sex on March 3rd when the condom broke unknowingly and my boyfriend came inside. When I took plan B, it was just 3 days before my period was supposed to be due. I am now a couple days late. I’m normally never late so it’s kind of freaking me out. Will my period eventually come? How long will planB mess up my period? Also: this happened long after ovulation/my fertile window obviously
As you say your period is always on time, you did not need Plan B. You are not fertile 3 days before your period. You can only become pregnant during your fertile window, &, as you say, you were past that time.
It's common to get a late period after taking Plan B. It's a huge dose of artificial hormone for your body to deal with. Your next period may be late, by days, weeks or even sometimes months.
It can take some women months to get regular periods back again, too.
There's also no way of knowing what is a genuine period, & what is just from the Plan B, in terms of your next bleed.
You may also experience any hormonal symptoms that you might get with a period or pregnancy, or other hormonal change in your body.
A condom breaking could have exposed you to any STD (sexually transmitted disease) that is present, so you might both want to get tested. Some can be carried by virgins. Some even without symptoms, for some time.
