Customer Question

I am on birth control but often times forget to take it, so i take it in the morning. i was just starting my period and had sex. The condom broke so within an hour went and got Plan B. I no longer have my period. Should I be more worried about pregnancy or getting my period regular again?

Thanks for the information

You should not worry about the pregnancy as the unprotected sex or incidence of breakage of condom occurred in the safe period during which there is no ovulation so you need to relax. The slight delay in the normal regularity of menstruation can be normal or could be due to effect of plan B and you will have regular periods soon.

Good luck
