Okay so like I messed up and took plan b last wknd because the condom broke and I wanted to be sure that I wasnt pregnant and haven't received my period but I know that it takes time to get it but the condom broke again and I took another plan b yesterday. And I'm just freaking out. How long untill I receive my period!?
It could be months. You've taken a huge overdose of hormones. You're not meant to take Plan B more than once in any 1 monthly cycle. Apart from it being less reliable than regular hormonal birth control, it's such a big dose of artificial hormone for your body to handle. One dose can mess your body up for weeks. 2 doses have not had any studies done on them, for the long term side effects. It's just a case of waiting & seeing what happens. You are likely to get no proper period for a long time, & may get some spotting or bleeding before that. You are also likely to get some hormonal side effects, such as those you'd get with PMS, a period, or a pregnancy.
Take some time to read up on the correct use of condoms. They are tested extensively so that they do not just break during use. Not unless you're using them incorrectly. Putting them on properly (leaving space at the teat but not allowing air to get into it) & removing them as soon as he ejaculates is vital to stopping them from breaking or sliding off.
