Hello, I took plan b after an accident my boyfriend and I had and got a "period" a week later. It was basically a normal flow for me, maybe a few days shorter. However, it has been a month since taking the pill, and the initial sex. I have missed my regular scheduled period (the one I was supposed to get)and I know the high dose of hormones can mess up your cycle so I am trying not to think too much of it now, but i am having terrible cramps that feel like im going to get my period but still nothing! I am bloated just like i would get my period too. I was wondering what this means or if you have any insight on this. Could it be a side effect or something else?

Really, it sounds like your period is probably on the way.

You can refer to the patient information that came with the Plan B to see what the common or possible side effects are, or consult your prescribing physician or pharmacist to check in about these concerns if you'd like.

It is advised to take a pregnancy test after using Plan B, though, if and when your regular period doesn't come as expected.
