Question: AWOL Period

 jordyred85 - Tue Mar 25, 2008 6:49 am

My last period was on the 3rd of Feb 2008. During this time my Boyfriend and i had sexual intercourse in which the condom broke. As a precaution i took the "morning after" pill the following day, no later then 12 hours after the incident. My period is now well overdue. I have taken 2 home pregnancy tests, both of which were negative. Im not under any stress nor am i taking any medications that may have interferred with my cycle. Im beginning to worry! Please help! :(

User avatar Hello,
Most likely your period has been affected by the plan B with is a high dose of hormone. Chances are you will get back on track in a few months and are not pregnant since you took it as prescribed. No guarantees, but most likely this is the case.

Best wishes.
