On the 1st and 3rd my boyfriend and I didn't have penetrative sex, and were careful about our genitals touching. On the 2nd I took the plan b generic and only had sore breasts from it. I'm due for my period in four days, and I know the next day pill can change your period. Today I started getting cramps, and have brown/red discharge that I usually get at the end of my period. It only coming out once and a while, not like my usual red flow that is heavy the first two days. It also seems to have clumps-but I'm not sure if they're endometrium or blood. My question is does the generic Plan B a. Cause a lighter period. b. Cause the period blood to change color or is it pregnancy and c. Although I took Plan B as a precaution and there was no penetration or semen, could I be pregnant?
history; What is going on right now is normal with the plan b and even what you're going through right now is more than likely from the huge amount of hormones in the plan B And is not your period yet and is know to start out kind of slimy, dark red brown etc. But you did the right thing as far as taking the plan B your boyfriend does not have to penetrate you in order for you to get pregnant. The best you can do is wait until your regular period comes and goes I believe and to a pregnancy test. But your period and cramping all the regular stuff is going to be messed up due to the plan B. And your normal period will be late in most cases. hope that will help.
Unless sperm entered your vagina, you have no chance of pregnancy.
Plan B is a huge dose of artificial hormone for your body to deal with. The chemicals can affect you for weeks or months.
You could get any hormonal symptoms that you could get with a period or pregnancy.
Plan B is not as effective as regular hormonal birth control. However, in your situation, it sounds as though it was pointless anyway.
Your symptoms will be due to the huge dose of artificial hormone.
You're just going to have to see how it affects you until your body rebalances itself.
I recommend looking up how your menstrual cycle occurs & when a woman is fertile during that cycle, as well as how pregnancy can occur. It could save you a lot of stress in future.
