So what happen was I had unprotective sex today-- took the Plan B pill 30/40 mins later without eating... What I forgot is that I'm taking Diane Birth Control... So I don't know what exactly will happen since I'm new to the idea of sex. So the question is, will the birth control and plan b work or not? I need help.
If you were on regular birth control for enough time not to need extra protection, & not late or missed any pills, then it wasn't unprotected sex. It was unprotected against STDs (sexually transmitted diseases), but not pregnancy. Unless you were on an antibiotic or other drug that interferes with your pill, or had vomited or had severe diarrhea within 2 hours of taking your regular pills.
By taking Plan B, you are likely to get hormonal symptoms, as it is a huge dose of hormone. They could be symptoms that you'd experience with a period or a pregnancy. Some of those could be bleeding or spotting, nausea, fatigue, cramping, bad back etc.
You may find that you don't get your normal period for a month or even 2. As you are already on the regular birth control, & have added more hormones, it's difficult to say how your body will react (everyone is different), but don't be surprised if you don't get your period, even if you have some bleeding before it's due. It can take a while for your body to get back to normal. You can do a pregnancy test from the day it's due, if you don't get it.
There's always a chance of pregnancy, even with birth control & emergency birth control. It's far less likely, & I'm sure you've nothing to worry about, although you might want to get yourself checked out for STDs, as many diseases can have no symptoms for months or even years. A person may not know they've got one, & you may not know for a long time, neither.
For your information, in case you need it in the future, there is another method of emergency birth control. You can have an IUD/Coil fitted by a doctor, within 5 days of unprotected sex. Some people choose that as well as Plan B, if they were not on regular birth control.
