Question: Took Plan B last month got my period now this month am late?

 itsangelica - Fri Mar 05, 2010 8:04 am

Hello first thanks for opening my question I would gladly appreciate it if you help me!

I am a 19 year old female, in the month of January I used the pull out method on the 20th. My boyfriend told me he pulled out just in time but wanted to take plan B just to be on the safe side,so I took Plan B about 30 mins after (this was around 6pm). At around 5am i started to throw up, I imagine because all I ate was junk food and had no food in my stomach. I took the 2nd pill around 7am (13hours later) then i threw up about an hour and a half later. I ended up getting my period on around the 3rd of Feb. this period was a normal period with clotting and everything. This month i still haven't gotten my period, could i be pregnant?

Will appreciate a speedy reply! thankssss a million :)

User avatar Hello,
I'm sorry the answer is not as speedy as you would have liked. You didn't mention if you have continued to be sexually active without protection, which would put you at risk for pregnancy. But, plan B can affect your cycle for several months even so I suspect this is the cause. Some irregularity of periods is normal at times in a woman's life, but using emergency contraception does increase the odds for it.

Best wishes.
