scared 17 yr old writes,
Ok so may 30th- june 4th was my last period.me and my guy friend had sex june 6, but he pulled out before he came but he did have precum.I was such a wreck,I took the plan b pill an hour later and follwed through with the second pill. my period usually comes towards the end of the month, causing it to be for the next month. my breasts are slightly sore, I feel slight cramps, but that’s it. two days ago I took a pregnancy test and it came out negative … my period chart predicts it should come june 27- july 2… I know i have 5more days, but I’m very worried … could I be pregnant or am I just worrying too much?
Dear Scared 17 yr old,
I wouldn’t be too worried if I were you. First, you had sex during a time when few ever get pregnant (so close to your period ending), and, if it was only precum, then your odds are even slimmer for getting pregnant. Secondly, you took Plan B right away, which gives you a very low probability for becoming pregnant. The soreness in your breasts and slight cramps may very well be a side effect of taking the Plan B (keep in mind that Plan B is a very high dose of the drug found in regular daily birth control pills), though it could also be caused by something else (including just your regular ovulation & cycle).
I also wouldn’t be surprised if your period comes later than expected, is irregular, or you skip it completely. Assuming you don’t take any more Plan B pills over the next month, your next period (the one that would start later in July) should come as expected. However, just to be safe, if your June 27 period doesn’t come, I would recommend taking a home pregnancy test around July 2. Be sure to take the test using your concentrated urine first thing in the morning. Please keep us posted!
