Scared, age 18, asks,
Hey!, Okay. My last period ended around May 14. A couple days later (May 19) my boyfriend and I had sex and the condom broke, but something happened to where he pulled out before he came (or at least that’s what he claims). Just to make sure though we took a Plan B pill 20 minutes later. But I am now two weeks late from my normal period! I took two tests and both came out negative, but I’m honestly freaking out and I don’t know what to do. I’m going to take another test tomorrow morning, but I keep hearing that the pill could make me miss it altogether? I just need advice on where I should go from here. Please tell me all you can! Thank you!
You should be fine. I wouldn’t be too worried, if I was you. Ovulation probably took place for you around May 24 or so (I’m basing this on an average 28 day cycle, assuming your May period started around the 10th and assuming your next period should have started around June 7 ). Having sex on May 19 could let the sperm inside your body live as long as 5 days (there would be a chance that some sperm might still be swimming around, still able to fertilize an egg by the 24th, but there wouldn’t be much). Taking Plan B right away would make the probability for the little bit of sperm left inside you very slim for you to become pregnant. I’ll take the side of the 2 negative pregnancy tests you took and go negative also. And, yes, Plan B frequently causes periods to be late or fully skipped. You should be back to your normal cycle when your next period comes.
Best of luck!
