I lost my virginity on the 7th. I took plan b not even 24 hours after sex. He used a condom. My period was supposed to come on the 13th, which it did. It only lasted 3 days, where my other periods have lasted 5-6 days. I experienced cramping and it was a bright red blood. However, 2 days after it ended, I saw a brown colored discharge. I researched and was scared to read that that can be an early pregancy sign. I'm scared to death and just want to know if I am pregnant or not. Should I take a pregnancy test?
You were very careful, you had protected sex then you used Plan B, your period came but it was light. Plan B can mess with your period sometimes, do be aware of that.
If you are truly concerned, please buy an early, home pregnancy test. I'm sure it will clear up your fears. I doubt you are pregnant, but do take a test just to allay any anxiety you have.
Best wishes to you and please come back to post what your pregnancy test reported, if you don't mind?
I'd really like to know what site you girls are seeing because rarely is any bleeding a sign of pregnancy! You are just experiencing the effects of Plan b. Between Plan b and having used a condom, your risk for pregnancy is very low! Dont worry. I do want to tell you that your next period may be late so dont panic!! This is just another effect of Plan b. Brown colored discharge is just old blood. This can occur after a period. Bright red blood for 3 days followed by brown discharge is NOT a sign of pregnancy! No worries child! Now that you are sexually active though, you should think about getting onto the Pill or some other more reliable form of birth control. Plan b is NOT a form of birth control and it only decreases your chances for pregnancy slightly. Using condoms is a great practice and I wish more girls did but they can be unreliable as the only form of birth control protection. It is better to use spermicidal jelly or foam in case of a tear or break. Tears and breaks are what make them unreliable. Please do yourself a BIG favor and see a gynecologist or a family planning clinic and get on regular birth control. Birth control pills, Nuvaring, birth control patches, implants and IUDS are 98-99.9% effective when used correctly and consistently-you cant beat that!
