I had sex last friday, the guy used a condom and i had just started my birthcontrol. He made me take Plan B, but I didn't get my period. I stopped the pill the following thursday.Is there anyway I could have gotten pregnant from him?

Hi there,

We ask all users asking about pregnancy risk to read this first:

Keep in mind that one of the side effects of Plan B is that it can create irregular periods, so people who take it often find that their period does not come when they are expecting it.

Also, Archie, just want to make sure you know that no-one should be "making" you take emergency contraception - like anything else with your body, that choice is entirely yours. Was taking EC something that you wanted to do, or did you feel pushed into it? If anything that happened with this guy, or anything he did, doesn't feel quite ok to you, we'd be very happy to talk about that with you.

As you started and stopped taking the pill so close together, do you have any concerns about the pill or contraception that you'd like to talk about, or do you need any information?

The kyriarchy usually assumes that I am the kind of woman of whom it would approve. I have a peculiar kind of fun showing it just how much I am not.
