I had unprotected sex the day before I got my period, but I still want to take the Plan B just in case. I am on the pill, but I am slightly worried about pregnancy. If I take Plan B, what will happen with my menstrual cycle? Will I still have my period this week or will the Plan B disrupt it?
If you are on the Pill, you do NOT NEED Plan B!!! Not only is Plan b not needed (you DO NOT ovulate while you are taking birth control pills), it can really mess up your cycle and will expose you to a large blast of hormones. All Plan b does is give you hormones to delay ovulation for a few days. If you are on the Pill, the Pill suppresses ovulation anyway so you do not need something to delay ovulation since you are already taking a pill to keep you from ovulating! Plan b is not a magic potion to prevent all pregnancy-it is not even as effective as regular birth control pills! Regular birth control pills are about 98-99.9% effective so there is absolutely no need for Plan b if you are taking your birth control pill properly.
