So, I took Plan B and almost a week later i bleed heavy for about 4days. A few days after that the tender breast kicked in. Now, a few weeks that I am suppose to have my period I was cramping. I am extremely bloated, buy i just spotted for 3days but I am still bloated. Could I have still gotten pregnant. I took the Plan B a few hrs before the 72hr time frame
You could. Plan B is not as effective as regular hormonal birth control. It's simply worth a try in the event of an emergency.
Plan B works by delaying your ovulation until the sperm leaves your body. If you're already ovulating then it can't do that, & you'd need one of the other 2 methods of emergency contraception.
It's also more effective the sooner you take it. It may work nearer the 72 hrs, but it's less likely than if you take it immediately.
A pregnancy test is the only way to know.
