... My boyfriend and I had sex without using protection on the 1st-3rd of this month and I took plan b before the 72 hours. On the 8th I got heavy bleeding. I'm having really bad cramps, back pain, and fatigue. Am I just having my period early even though I just had it a little over a week ago? These are just the symptoms right?
Plan B can cause lots of hormonal symptoms, such as those you'd get with a period or pregnancy, for example. That is common, although what you experience can vary each time you use Plan B. It could affect you differently another time to what it has done on this occasion.
Plan B is a huge dose of artificial hormone for your body to deal with. It's nut as reliable at preventing pregnancy as regular hormonal birth control, it's simply worth a try in the event of a birth control accident.
If you're already ovulating when you have sex, then Plan B can't do anything, & you'd need one of the other methods of emergency contraception.
It's likely your proper period could be late.
