I had sex Friday and Saturday with my boyfriend. I am not on any type of birth control. We did use protection every time and the condom stayed in tact. I started to experience breast Saturday night. Sunday morning I went to Walgreens and bought Plan B one step just to be cautious. I'm still experiencing breast pain and now I have a white goey discharge coming out. Could this mean I'm pregnant or am I experiencing similar pregnancy symptoms from the Plan B.
The breast pain can be a normal hormonal symptom. It depends what your hormones were doing at the weekend, though, really. If you were around ovulation or not far from your period, then it would be common to get breast tenderness (or other hormonal symptoms). If not, then you might want to check with your Doctor, for other possible causes. Was it both breasts? Is that normal for you?
As far as Plan B, it's a huge dose of hormone for your body to handle, which is why it should only be used in real emergencies.
You wouldn't have breast pain or discharge from having unprotected sex a couple of days ago & becoming pregnant. The hormone levels wouldn't be high enough.
Even if an STD was possible, it would be unlikely to cause breast pain within a couple of days.
More cervical mucus tends to happen around the time of ovulation, & just before your period. The same goes for breast pain. You were likely to be around the time of one of those, & therefore the hormone levels were high. By taking the Plan B, you've thrown even more hormone into the mix, & are likely to experience more hormonal symptoms. They could last up to a couple of weeks.
It depends where in your cycle you were when you took Plan B, & every woman reacts differently to the drug, but you are likely to either get heavy bleeding, spotting, light bleeding or brown/pink discharge, before your period is due, & then you actual period is likely to be a week or 2 late. It could be heavier or lighter, or just the same
Some women don't get the bleeding after using Plan B, but have to wait a couple of weeks for their period.
Other hormonal symptoms may include anything that you'd normally expect with a period or with pregnancy, so from cramps & bloating to spots, back ache, mood swings/depression, & sore or leaky breasts.
Day 1 of your period is the first day of your cycle. Most (but not all) women tend to ovulate around day 14 of their cycle (so are most commonly fertile between days 12/17), as a guide. You can learn how to follow your fertility by looking on the internet for natural family planning. Even when on contraception, it can be good to learn the signs of your body. I do it to monitor my ovulation & period (taking my temperature, knowing the different cervical mucus you get at different parts of your cycle etc).
