I had sex while on my period and I took the plan pill right

This answer was rated:

I had sex while on my period and I took the plan b pill right away within 24 hours of having unprotected sex. I am now getting like brown period like stains on my underwear, and at one time it was thick and brown like feces.. Is there a chance that I am pregnant or what is that?
Dr. Pfeiffer :

hello

Dr. Pfeiffer :

how long ago did this happen

JACUSTOMER-d7kgifdu- :

On December 1st, 2012

JACUSTOMER-d7kgifdu- :

and I took the Plan B pill on Sunday not even 12 hours after it had happened.

Dr. Pfeiffer :

ok...what day of your period was it and how many days do your periods usually last?

JACUSTOMER-d7kgifdu- :

My periods usually last about a week and it was on its 3rd day I think.

Dr. Pfeiffer :

ok. is there an odor at all or just the dark discharge?

JACUSTOMER-d7kgifdu- :

I don't think there is an odor no..

Dr. Pfeiffer :

and...just to be sure, your period started on time and as expected when this happened

JACUSTOMER-d7kgifdu- :

yes.

Dr. Pfeiffer :

ok.

Dr. Pfeiffer :

you have essentially no chance of being pregnant.

JACUSTOMER-d7kgifdu- :

really?

JACUSTOMER-d7kgifdu- :

So what is this then?

Dr. Pfeiffer :

the discharge you are having is old blood....it turns dark as it breaks down.

JACUSTOMER-d7kgifdu- :

Is it just another period or like

JACUSTOMER-d7kgifdu- :

ohhh okay. Yeah cause it's really dark.

Dr. Pfeiffer :

well....it's due to the progesterone in the plan b

JACUSTOMER-d7kgifdu- :

Okay, do you know when it would be done its whole ordeal by?

Dr. Pfeiffer :

yep....so anytime a woman takes a large dose of hormones you can see changes in bleeding.

Dr. Pfeiffer :

usually it takes a cycle or two for things to get back to normal

Dr. Pfeiffer :

sometimes up to 3 cycle when the pill is taken in the middle of the cycle

JACUSTOMER-d7kgifdu- :

so I will have to deal with this excess blood for a whole cycle?

Dr. Pfeiffer :

but, since it was taken on your period...you will likely stop bleeding in a few day, but may experience spotting for the next few weeks.

Dr. Pfeiffer :

make sense?

Dr. Pfeiffer :

you still there?

JACUSTOMER-d7kgifdu- :

yes

JACUSTOMER-d7kgifdu- :

sorry, I didn't see your answer cause it wasn't scrolled down all the way haha

Dr. Pfeiffer :

ok..

JACUSTOMER-d7kgifdu- :

alright so ther is no chance that I am pregnant then

Dr. Pfeiffer :

so does that make sense to you?

JACUSTOMER-d7kgifdu- :

*there

Dr. Pfeiffer :

extremely small...like winning the lottery type odds.

JACUSTOMER-d7kgifdu- :

okay. Thank you very much!

Dr. Pfeiffer :

sure.

Dr. Pfeiffer :

take care

JACUSTOMER-d7kgifdu- :

You too!

Dr. Pfeiffer :

thanks

Dr. Pfeiffer :

thank you
