condom broke and took plan b and hour later. i had my period a week early.. with cramping alot. i just now read that plan b doesnt work if your over 165 pounds? im 220. and my early period could be a sign of pregnancy? i need to know if my weight affected it and if im pregnant..
Bleeding is NOT a sign of pregnancy. What you had was break thru bleeding from the plan b. I've never heard of weight being a problem. Not for plan B. I just went thru their web site to see if there was anything about it, but didn't find anything. You can call them and ask. Their info line is 1-800-330-1271. Let us all know what they say please.
It is not that it is ineffective, they just did no trials on women who weighed over 165-170 so they dont know if it is as effective in heavier women as it is in their thinner counterparts. Many of the hormonal birth control methods were not tested in heavier women and some of them have been shown to be a little less effective in heavier women, not ineffective-just a little less effective bit it is really unknown how much less effective. The best way to prevent pregnancy is to protect yourself BEFORE sex, not after. You should always use spermicide with condoms to help kill sperm in the event of breakage. As Kaismama point out, bleeding is NOT a sign of pregnancy!! "Implantation bleeding" is very rare and it is only very light blood tinged spotting for perhaps a few hours only, if even that. Most women do not have "implantation bleeding" anyway.
