I have been seeing a guy, we’ll call him Joe, for the past few months although we took a break during the month of December. We use pull out method as I am scared of birth control and neither of us like condoms, stupid I know. I recall on New Years Eve looking up and noticing a full moon and realizing I hadn’t gotten my period yet (I’m really bad at keeping track of it but usually its done around the full moon).
I have an OCD thing where every month I am convinced I’m pregnant, been happening since I first started getting my period at age twelve and I did not even have sex until 18. But I remember in December it felt a little more real than just an ocd pattern. On New Years Day I found out one of the guys at this party had had sex with me while I was blacked out. I immediately went and bought/took plan B and I did end up getting my period a day or two later. I then reunited with Joe, on Jan 9th and we had sex and again on the 15th.
I have generally have an incredibly small appetite, usually I forget to eat even but for the past two weeks I feel like I can’t get enough food. My coworkers who rarely see me eat have watched me sit and eat three PB&Js in a row and then ask to go to the store and get snacks. At first I was excited I had an appetite because I was starting to get underweight but now I’ve had constant headaches and I’ve never been so exhausted.
If I stay out too late I start getting incredibly panicky and cranky. And I’ve also had incredibly touchy nipples, very painful if I touch them. I took a pregnancy test that came up negative on the 30th but afterwards I realized it would have been to early for a test to be reliable. I am due for my period again in the next day or so. I have read a lot of those symptoms are also stress related but I haven’t been particularly stressed lately. I am not upset that I might be pregnant but I really don’t want it to be the guy from New Years Eve and I have had 2-3 nights of heavy drinking (with absolutely no drinking in between) in the past month and would be concerned about that having hurt any baby.
Is there still a chance of pregnancy? And is there any chance the plan b did not work? Sorry for the long question and thank you for the help!
Sorry, me again, just wanted to say that there is no option for the current year on the online pregnancy test page. If I am pregnant I would be 52 weeks along by now and should have had my baby :)

Ooops! Thanks for catching the no-current-year-option on the pregnancy test page. We’ve fixed that now :)
A couple questions for you: Do you remember when your period came in November and December? (I’m just trying to figure out when it was supposed to come in late December.) You said you took Plan B and had your period a day or two later; did that seem to be a “normal” period? Do you remember how long it lasted?
Even if nothing results from the New Years Day event, you’re playing it very risky with Joe, as the pull-out method is going to catch up with you eventually.
