I am on my sugar pills. I start monday and usually get my period by wednesday. I had sex with a condom on the monday because my period didnt come yet. He thought some might have gotten inside of me so i took the plan B on the tuesday about 12 hours after sex but a day before my period was suppose to come. Its now late friday night and no sign of my period. I have been on birth control for about 2 years and im extremly good with taking it. So the pharmacist said that between the plan b, being on my sugar pills and my good habits of taking my pill im fine. But the thought of not getting my period scares me. Is my period just not coming this month? And when im suppose to start my borth conrol on monday (its friday night now ) do i just take it and wait till my next period?
Start your pills again exactly as you would have if you hadn't used Plan B.
You didn't need Plan B if you were on time with your pills for the 7 days before your sugar pills week.
Between all the artificial hormone in your regular birth control, & the huge dose of it you've just put into your body in the Plan B, you may find your periods don't happen for a couple of months, & you might even get irregular bleeding when you're not supposed to. It's going to take time to get your body back to normal.
You also need to do some research on how your body works. Most women ovulate half way between their period & their next period. Roughly around day 14. Your body can save the sperm for up to 7 days before that day, & keep it for when you begin to ovulate.
By the time you get to the week of your period/sugar pills, your body is no where near ovulation/fertility. Look up natural family planning. It'll show you how to monitor your body's signs to know what it's doing at any one time.
I am assuming that as your period didn't start as normal, that you had done a pregnancy test.
