Ask a Gynecologist and Get Answers to Your Ob-Gyn Questions ASAP
Hello, I am Dr Owen, I am a Board Certified Ob/Gyn Medical Doctor and I want to help you.
Let me read your question....
can you tell me how many days PRIOR to your expected period did you have sex?
wait....my expected period or the one I have now (which was unexpected)?
Well I do Not think you are pregnant for a couple of reasons
You took the plan B and this will cause you to bleed on average about 2 to 8 days after you take the plan B
Plus you were expecting your period - so the combination of the two tells me you were not going to ovulate so hence I don't think you will be pregnant.
To confirm you are not pregnant - do a Pregnancy test 14 days after the last day you had unprotected sex
I hope this helps
If you have more questions, please ask
Actually I do....
What are you other questions - I'm here
I wasn't expecting my period for another 10 days. The period I have now was completely unexpected which I think was because of Plan B
Okay - you misunderstood my question -
yes I did
but if you read my answer too, I said when you take Plan B - you will bleed 2 to 8 days after taking this
its easier to do dates
this is called Progesterone withdrawal bleeding
Yes, I understand that.
So there is still no possible way for me to be pregnant?
whether I was 10 days out from starting my expected period or not
Well there is a possiblity, but very Low chance
ok so I still need to take a pregnancy test next week just to be sure
and so let me explain a little bit
Normally you would ovulate 14 days PRIOR to your next start date of your next period
so Unlikely you would have gotten pregnant even if you did not take plan B
Plan B just helped you to bleed earlier, and then also lessened the chance of getting pregnant
So I would still suggest a pregnancy test (heck ALL ob/gyn's recommend pregnancy tests - it is what we do)
and, more than likely you are NOT pregnant
I hope that helps
That is very true, I haven't been to an ob/gyn in a couple years ( I know it's bad, but currently I don't have health insurance, but will soon now that I am married to my husband who has benefits at work)
It helps greatly, just needed to ease my mind a little bit.
I wish you well
