Me and my husband had sex on Jan. 5 early morning around 4am. Took plan b on Jan. 8 around 2pm. Then on Jan 11th we had sex again and once again he ejaculated inside me. I bleed on Jan. 12th through the 18th. I was due for a period on Jan. 26th it's now Feb 7th and still nothing. Please don't talk about getting on birth control. Because that's not an option for me. I bleed non stop each time we tried birth control. We are hoping we are. We decided we wanted a baby after the possibility of me being pregnant. My appetite has changed a lot. I really don't eat anything anymore but "safe foods" my friend calls it. Stuff that doesn't make me feel like I'm going to puke and that's like once a day. Mild cramping and nausea here and there and headaches a little more
You took plan B more than 72 hrs after unprotected sex, so it was outside the time in which it would be helpful. You'd need one of the other methods of emergency contraception, when leaving it that late. Either an IUD or the pill Ulipristal Acetate.
As you've had significant bleeding, it is unlikely you're pregnant, & more likely to be experiencing side effects from the Plan B artificial hormone.
It's not impossible, but unlikely.
Your menstrual cycle is likely to take a few weeks to get back to normal.
