So me and my boyfriend had protected sex 12 days ago and the condom broke, he pulled out right away. I had recently been on birth control, but not for long, i stopped midway which messed up my cycle, and we had sex when (if I'm going by the new cycle) i should have ovulated. So my body was already messed up as it was, but a day and a half after that I took plan B, and everything has been fine and dandy, minus some nausea and breast tenderness LATELY. I didn't get any symptoms until a couple days after I took it, and today, I noticed some spotting. My period is technically due in 5 days so I'm kind of freaking out because I don't know if plan B didn't work and I am pregnant, or if this is a combined side effect of my stress, plan B and birth control. If anyone has any comments on this it would be super much appreciated because I cannot deal with being pregnant.

Welcome to Scarleteen.
We're short-handed right now, which is why we didn't get to your post until now.
Plan B can have an effect on hormones, and alter cycles pretty significantly for a couple of months. This can include spotting, early or late periods, and other menstrual cycle (such as tender breasts) changes.
Did the condom break before or after ejaculation?
If you are concerned about pregnancy, you can go ahead and take a pregnancy test once it has been 14 days after the risk.
Would you like to talk about future birth control options?
