I am very careful with sexual activity. I've only had sex with one guy. I was caught in a situation where I was having sex (and for some reason I was very dry-sorry for tmi) but the dryness caused the condom to break. He pulled out immediately. Did not ejaculate but possibly pre-cum wouldn't gotten in me. I peed immediately after. This happened about two days before my expected ovulation (according to my period tracker app- so give or take a few days-THE REASON WHY IM SO SCARED) The following day we went to the drug store and bought Plan b- one step pill. I took it about 13 hours after the incident. I had so symtoms till about a week ago. I started having cramps just as my period cramps feel. I'm expecting to get my period in 4 days. My breasts have also been a little sore- again a usual symptom. But the cramps seem to be more on and off than usual. I've also felt bloated all month. I've never taken plan b before and I haven't been on any type of birth control. I'm hoping this is all from the plan b and not pregnancy? Now I'm starting to feel kind of hot (maybe from nervousness) please comment. Anything will help
You've put a huge dose of emergency hormone into your body, & now you're getting a huge amount of hormonal symptoms. Simple as that.
You period is likely to be late, so expect that. It may come on time, but it is common for it to be a week or two late.
What are the odds of you being pregnant... If your BMI is 26 or less, then Plan B is thought to be 95% effective when taken within the first 12 hours after unprotected sex. After that, it decreases in reliability, until at the 72 hours point (the last point at which the Manufacturer says it can be used after unprotected sex) it is somewhere around 75% effective.
You do not flush out sperm or pre-ejaculate from your vagina by peeing! Ain't gonna happen I'm afraid.
You do need to have an appointment with a family planning clinic, nurse or doctor, to decide which method of birth control is best for you & your partner. Plan B can really mess up your body & your cycle for a month or two, & it is a huge dose of hormone for your body to handle. It is therefore not to be used on a frequent basis. Your body would be in total turmoil. Bleeding will get heavier if you use it more frequently, & periods will be totally out of sync. Plus, regular birth control is more effective at preventing pregnancy than Plan B is, when used correctly.
There's no way to know that Plan B has worked, until you either get your period, or you do a pregnancy test after your period doesn't show up.
