SO on feb. 6 i had sex and it was unprotected and my boyfriend didnt pull out, so the next day i took Plan b! and im hoping it worked , but now i've noticed that i didnt get my period at all this month and the last time i got my period was sometime in January. sadly i dont remember when. but we had sex again a few more times but this time we did use condoms all those other times. but lately i've been having cramps and i got a really bad cold and i have been feeling sick. im still waiting for my period to hit, but this month of febuary is about to end and im scared im pregnant. Does this mean anything ? :(
It is hard to say. Plan b doesnt always work and the high dose of hormones can mess up your periods and make you feel sick. Feb is a short month and if you had a period very late in Jan, it is possible you wont have one until March. At this point, you could take a home pregnancy test, just so you know, or you could wait until the first week or two in March and if no period by then, you definitely want to test. If you dodged the bullet this time, you might want to see your Dr, Planned Parenthood or a county clinic about a better birth control method. There is nothing wrong with condoms but it is best to use a spermicidal foam along with them in case of breakage or slippage. If you use condoms, your partner should NEVER be inside you without one! Men leak sperm even when they are not ejaculating (and that is why withdrawal is a poor method, along with the fact that is very difficult for a lot of guys to predict and control, even with their best efforts) My little brother is here today because of slipping it in before putting on a condom, according to my mother!! There are many, many choices for birth control available, and many at low, or no cost for women who are uninsured. There is really no reason in this day and age not to be on birth control unless it is a religion thing (which I personally think is kind of silly as I'm of the feeling that God would understand not wanting to bring a child into the world that you cannot feed and care for. To me, that is a bigger sin, but that is just my personal opinion. I know some people feel very strongly about this matter. I figure if you have used condoms before you dont have a problem with using birth control) So, maybe do a home test, just for peace of mind, then do some research and go see your Dr for better birth control.
