Customer Question

The first day of my last period was June 20. I had unprotected sex on June 27,took a plan b on June 30. Then, I had unprotected sex again on July 4th. The very next day I started bleeding and I continued to bleed for about 5 days. Was that a very early period or was that bleeding from Plan B?! It is now July 25 and I have been very queasy (especially from certain smells,my breasts are very sore (especially after i eat)I'm having more discharge than normal, and I'm extremely tired. I took a pregnancy test and it was negative. Is it too early to tell? Could I still be pregnant?

This is Dr. Bonilla.

I understand your concerns. The bleeding you had is likely from plan B. Your pregnancy test is accurate and is very unlikely for you to be pregnant. The symptoms you have now are most likely from hormonal irregularities after using plan B. The symptoms will gradually resolve in the next couple of weeks. If you have further bleeding or your symptoms do not improve you should see your PCP or OBGYN. Let me know if you have other questions.

In fact it could have been implantation bleeding since you again had sex on July 4 without taking plan B again.

You need a blood pregnancy test.

Home tests are accurate when your period is again due, but that might have been disrupted.

Take a home test again.

In addition, call your doctor.

Bleeding at this point can not be assumed to be from plan B.

It can be, but any hormone disruption can do this.

So can a period.

So can thyroid disease, liver or kidney problems, stress, weight loss or gain, etc.

Not simply a question and answer internet situation.
