Dear ruined,

I feel (very much so) your pain. 84 hours is a long time to wait to take the Plan B pill. The longer you wait to take it, the lower the probability that the pill will decrease your chances of having the egg get fertilized. Ideally, you want to take the pill asap after noticing a condom had an “accident.” When was your last period? When did you have sex? Now, having said all of that, keep in mind that it’s very common to miss your next period after taking the Plan B pill. The high dosage of hormones in the Plan B pill messes up your system and can cause you to skip your next period and even make the period after that delayed (or sometimes skipped too).

Good luck,



  1. Did you ever get your period? I’m going through the same thing and I’m super worried
