Hi, there are alot of things going on right now. I finally got the nerve to talk to my boyfriend about all the things that took place before with the EC and not using protection during sex. I'm so happy that things have gotten better b/t us, b/c I know that I love him with all my heart. We also talked about what we would do if I did get pregnant, and he said that things would be fine even though thats the last thing we both want right now, maybe in the future. Well I went home for the weekend to see him & my family. Well I ended up spending the night with him again and we had sex but we used protect and i'm getting on birth control this week. Well I had sex Monday night (we were on fall break) and afterwards I went to the bathroom, and I was bleeding, I thought I had just started my period since I haven't had it for almost 3 weeks (due to the EC (PLAN B) that I took before b/c of the pregnancy scare. Well I had morning sickness the next day and I was bleeding horribly, enough to scare me. SO either it's a very heavy period or something is wrong. This is only like second time we've really had sex, the first time I was just very paranoid and thought I could be pregnant b/c we weren't smart about it since we didn't use protection. This time we did, and now i'm just in alot of pain and i'm guessing it's my period? Could it be something more...thank you. I'm just really worried.

Does the bleeding look like a period to you? Since you took EC twice, it'd be hard to predict when you might get your next period, so this might well be it. If you're concerned that you're bleeding too heavily, do give your gyn a call.

Hi. I had a previous post that I types about 3 weeks ago, this is another post. I probly shouldn't have made a new post, but it was a new problem. I only took the EC once and that was 3 weeks ago b/c we didn't use protection and it was our first time having sex, b/c I was a virgin. It scared me though b/c it was so random and we didn't take the proper pre-cautions, so the next day I went to get Plan B (3 weeks ago). We had sex again this week (Monday night) and right after we had sex is when I started bleeding. So I didn't know if that was normal b/c it wasn't my first time, we had sex one time prior. I'm thinking it was just my period, and it scared me. So hopefully it isn't anything serious? =/

Oh, I'm sorry, I got you mixed up with another user. My advice still stands, though: Since you took EC, it's hard to predict when your next period will start. So if what you are experiencing now looks like a period, it probably is one. If it seems to be heavier than you're used to and you're worried, check in with your doctor.
