Hi...I have some questions that I've been trying to get answered with no help....I got my last period on May 23rd. On the 28th, my boyfriend and I had sex and the condom broke. He was no where near ejaculating, but just to be safe we bough plan b. I took it within 24 hours. About six days later I started to have a brown discharge with some blood and cramps. That lasted for a few days...I haven't had a period since then. I'm not sure if that bleeding was considered my period because of the plan b or what. I took a pregnancy test about a week ago and it came out negative. I don't know what to think. I'm not sure if it's just the hormones in the plan b responding to my body like this since I've never taken birth control or what, but could someone please help me!

If May 28th was your last risk, it's safe to assume the last pregnancy test you took was accurate and you're not pregnant. Pregnancy tests are generally accurate 10-14 days after the last risk.

Emergency contraception can really mess w/ ones' cycle ... So you may find your periods are off for the next few cycles.

is the risk for pregnancy high from that? we had sex other times after that but we always used condoms with spermicide...none of them broke and we checked them after and there were no leaks...

Having a condom break does present a high risk of pregnancy. However, taking EC within 24 hours reduces that risk significantly. It sounds like you have a good primary method of birth control (condoms) and a solid plan if that primary method fails. [Smile]
