Plan B, please need help

Posted by ememem23 @ememem23, Apr 10, 2018

I had my last normal period March 14th, my periods vary between 25-31 days and I get them every month. I had unprotected sex for 5 minutes long before the man ejaculated on the 24th. I took plan B an hour after the incident had happened. I then began having heavy bleeding for 3 days on the 30th. Today is April 10th and I am expecting my period to start tomorrow, but I am not having any PMS signs and I was wondering if the bleeding I had on the 30th was my period for the month or should I expect my period to start back up again soon?

Hello, @ememem23. Welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. Sounds like a puzzle, indeed. So, it sounds like you took Plan B following intercourse on the 24th, then experienced heaving bleeding more than 10 days before when you'd expect your period to start, for a time span of 3 days, and the question is whether that earlier than your expected menstruation time was your period, or if it's still coming.

I'm tagging some members here who have had experience with irregularity with menstrual periods, like @skylarfox @kas1792 @nash2011 @swilliams55.

Has anything happened with your menstruation since you first posted here? Have you by any chance spoken to your doctor to get their input on this question?

Hi, @ememem23 — just wanted to circle back to you and see how things are going.

Here is some information from Mayo Clinic that may be helpful:
https://mayocl.in/2vCiS14, on emergency contraception
https://mayocl.in/2FcOXMJ, on the "morning after" pill

How has it gone with your period?

Hi! My partner and I engaged in unprotected coitus this Monday that passed and within 12 hours, I took plan b as a precaution. My period was due June 28, but so far It has not come yet. I have two questions: does plan b work if you have already ovulated? I already took since in my cycle it was a low change of pregnancy since ovulation occurred and two, when should I take a pregnancy test??

@harm1223, welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. You'll notice that I moved your message to a discussion on this same topic. I did this so you can meet @ememem23 and see the information that moderator, Lisa shared with her.

According to this article, "You should wait to take a pregnancy test until the week after your missed period for the most accurate result."
