Hi so about two weeks ago me and my bf had intercourse and well we were gonna use the pull out method but of course it didnt go as planned. Less then 15 min we went to go buy a plan b . Im not going to lie this is the second time taking it but , the first time i bled about a day later like a regular period maybe because he didnt ejaculate in me the first time but we panicked. Anyways back then i weighed about the same or more to what i weigh now. So back to story i drank the pill and i was expecting to bleed but nothing at all no symptoms until a few days ago my breast hurt alot and cramps but no bleeding no nausea. I did have diarrhea a few headaches. Also one more thingy i forgot, the day i took my second pill whih is about two weeks ago i was taking yeast infection medications. Its about two weeks later after the intercourse im really desperate right now im scared i dont know what to do i know what i did wasnt the correct thing but please dont judge i just need help. Also the reason why i said i weight 185 pounds is because i read plan b doesnt work for girls over 176 pounds please help !
If you are over a BMI (Body Mass Index) of 26, then you should ask for a different emergency pill, called EllaOne. Plan B 'may' work for you if you are over that BMI, but it's not recommended you rely on that.
The symptoms that you get when you take Plan B, depend where you are in your monthly cycle when you take it. This is why sometimes you bleed, sometimes you don't, sometimes you feel sick or tired, sometimes you don't etc.
A recent study by Human Fertility has shown that sperm can be present in pre-ejaculatory fluid (pre-cum), even when the guy has urinated since his last ejaculation. Therefore you can get pregnant from using the withdrawal/pull-out method, even if he doesn't ejaculate/cum. I'd suggest getting yourself onto some form of regular birth control ASAP.
You can do a pregnancy test if you don't get your period when you expect to. Plan B can delay your actual period, so at least doing a test, you'll know which is causing it, if you are late.
How long ago did you take the last Plan B (the one before this one)? I ask because I can better advise you as to what symptoms you might experience.
Nerei; The best thing for now because the plan b does work different each time depending where you are in your cycle and after taking it you are almost always late on your next period etc and you can get next to none or a ton of side effects but it's been this long now I would just too ease your mind and make sure all went well is take a pregnancy test before you do anything and just find out. from what you are saying, I do not think you are. But for sure I would think it over and use a different type of birth control then the pullout method to many get pregnant just from the pre-com if it is close to that time..good luck.And if still in dought, see your doctor. and you can double check tell the doctor all of this and come up with a better birth control
Important:###### Lois am I reading this right. I read where if you use morning urine it is more accurate than when the old ones you had to wait almost a month. Chuck.
