Okay so my last period was on April 14. I had unprotected sex on April 28, but he definitely pulled out. I was still worried so the next morning I took Plan B less then 12 hours after the sex. The same thing then happened on May 1. We stupidly had unprotected sex again and he pulled out again, and again I took Plan B less than 12 hours afterwards. I am now hopefully expecting my period within the next couple of days and I feel like I have some of my normal PMS symptoms, but I'm not sure. I am wondering how long Plan B could possibly delay my period considering I took it twice in one week. I'm slightly freaking out a little bit, but I feel like I may be psyching myself out and overreacting, but I would still love some helpful answers. Thanks!
Plan b can most certainly mess up your periods! If your period hasnt arrived yet, you can go ahead and take a pregnancy test. If it is negative then you can figure it is just the Plan b messing with your cycle. If you are pregnant, it will show positive by now since your period is due. If you luck out, and the test is negative, I urge you to see your local family planning clinic or your gynecologist and talk about methods of birth control and for you to get yourself on something more reliable. Also be aware that the male pulling out before ejaculating does little to nothing to prevent pregnancy so you did right by taking the Plan b but Plan b is not meant to be a birth control. Never rely on "pulling out". It does not work. Men secrete sperm all throughout the sex act and it only takes one! Just go do a home pregnancy test so that you know for certain if you have not started yet.
