Ok so, last month on the 19th I just got off my period and then had unprotected sex, used pullout method and just incase took plan b, and got my period a week later. Which was about 3 weeks early, which happened because I took plan b and it's a normal side affect. Now, I haven't shown any sign of early prego symptoms at all, but I've been urinating a little but more than usual. I took a prego test 22 days after sex, it came out negative. My question is, when should I expect to get my next period since that pill is very strong and can mess you up?

Hey Bri,

I'm not sure. I'm guessing that if your cycle has been effected by the plan b then it would effect you in a unique way which wouldn't be the same for everyone.

So perhaps you'll just have to wait and see. It may be that your cycle has shifted, or it may be that this one was an anomaly.

Sorry not to have an exact answer!

Or could I still be prego? The preg test turns out my friend bought it from doller tree.Ugh. But I followed the directive ions, and I've had no implantation bleeding.

Hi Bri, if you're not comfortable with the test you took I can only recommend you try a different one. But I couldn't really say much about the accuracy of the test based on the shop it was bought for.

If the box says FDA approved and provides information to check that, even googling the manufacturer to know it's legit would be enough for me. An unreliable pregnancy test would be a very reckless thing for any shop to sell.

Yeah it seems to be legit, I've read it's accurate and I hope it is Setting aside the fact of the pregnancy year, it doesn't seem as ifI am? I don't think there's any way I can go but another one. But getting my period next is my main worry.

It's hard to know when you will get your next period, simply because everybody reacts differently to the pill, and there is simply no way any of us here could tell you when either. Your best bet is smply to take care of your body--eat well, exercise, get enough sleep, and your body will do the rest in terms of getting itself regulated again. That is simply the nature of emergency contraceptives, and if you aren't comfortable with dealing with the consequences of taking it, consider it an admonishment against engaging in the same risks in the future until you are.

This is not a question we can or will answer for you. you need to make your own decisions on that based on the information we've given you and the discussions we've already had with you.

That is, we've already given you the information you need to figure this out for yourself. [Smile]
