My period hasn’t come in over a month…

… Could it be possible that Plan B  delayed it or am I pregnant?

One of the most common side effects of taking emergency contraception is a change in a period.  Because it contains a large dose of hormones, it can disrupt someone’s cycle.  For some people, it may jump start a full period, or light spotting, or it may delay someone’s period. This can potentially happen for a couple of cycles. It’s not harmful to the body, its just a side effect.

The only way to know if you are pregnant is to take a test at least 14 days after the sexual contact happened. You can get an accurate result then.

Lets talk a little bit about emergency contraception.  Plan B is a brand of emergency contraception.

Emergency contraception  is a hormonal emergency birth control method used to delay ovulation in the hopes of preventing pregnancy. The hormones prevent ovulation – the process when the ovaries release an egg – and thicken cervical mucus. Plan B is not an abortion pill. It will not harm or end a pregnancy; it will only work to delay ovulation to reduce the risk of a pregnancy.

People of all ages can get Emergency Contraception over-the-counter at most pharmacies. In Colorado there is no age restriction to buy Emergency Contraception. It is usually between $40-$60 at these locations.

I had sex with my boyfriend and I took Plan B the next day….

…A few days after I started bleeding, but I was bleeding less and it lasted only for 3 days. Also the color of blood was very dark. After that I didn’t bleed. Even my second period is late. What should I do? Am I pregnant?

Will a Plan B work if he ejaculated inside me?

If there was a chance that sperm came into contact with the vagina there would be a risk of pregnancy.

Taking an Emergency Contraception can help reduce the risk of pregnancy.  Someone can take an Emergency Contraception up to 5 days after the sexual contact but it is more effective the sooner it is taken.

Emergency Contraception works by delaying ovulation – the process when the ovaries release an egg – if ovulation has not already occurred. It is difficult to know whether an Emergency Contraception works for sure, since it is very hard to accurately track ovulation.

The only way someone can know if they are pregnant is to take a test at least 14 days after the most recent sexual contact. At this time, they can trust the result.

I’ve been on birth control for 6 days I use it at 7:45 every day…

…My boyfriend came in me and I’m worried that there’s a chance of me getting pregnant ?

When someone starts a new hormonal method of birth control (like the pill) they need to use a back up method (like condoms or practicing abstinence) for one week before that method will be effective.

After that first week, the hormones will be integrated into the body and can help prevent pregnancy up to 99% (even if ejaculation occurs in the vagina) when taken correctly. In order for The Pill to be taken correctly, a person needs to take the pill every day at the same time. 

Since unprotected sex occurred before the 7 days, there would be a risk of pregnancy. Emergency Contraception is an option which can be taken up to 5 days after the sexual contact occurs, but it is more effective the sooner it is taken.

Remember hormonal forms of birth control do not reduce the risk of pregnancy. Only condoms and dental dams can.
