So I had my period from the 12-17 then had unprotected sex on 18 19 20 then took plan b pill on the 21st then had sex on the 22nd and 24th and started my period again today the 27th what can this mean ?
All the second period means is that the plan b screwed up your system. If you're not pregnant after such irresponsible behavior, you're the luckiest girl in the world. You didn't take the plan b correctly. You had sex after you took the pill, and that isn't the way you do it. Why don't you get on a birth control pill so you avoid all this?
Plan b can sometimes make you bleed. this is no assurance that you are not pregnant however. Plan b works best when taken within 36 hours of a sexual episode. If you have already gotten pregnant before you took it, it wont terminate that pregnancy though. This is why it is important to take it right away. Plan b is not meant to be birth control. You return to fertility quite quickly after a dose so it doesnt protect for sex done after you have taken it so dont think since you took Plan b that you were "good" for a few days. It doesnt work that way. You will be lucky if you escape from this without becoming pregnant. Plan b can really mess up your cycle making it very irregular and it can also give you symptoms like nausea, cramping, breast tenderness, bloating etc. so there is no peace of mind for a while. At this point, you can only wait it out and see. If your period is late next month you can do a pregnancy test.
Dont do one now because it is too early to tell and you would just be wasting money. If your test is negative, wait another couple of weeks and do another one with the mornings first void (pee) as this has the strongest concentration of HCG-the hormone the test looks for in the urine that is only secreted by a pregnant woman. If that test is negative, you can pretty much figure that Plan b has messed you up and you are not pregnant. If you are going to be sexually active, you need to be responsible and protect yourself! Use birth control! Condoms are available all over the place-insist your partner use one. Once you regulate out, you can look into getting on the pill or other hormonal birth control. Plan b is not always effective so dont think to yourself that you can have unprotected sex now and take Plan b later! Use birth control BEFORE sex, not after! It is much safer and a LOT less nerve wracking.
