  • Plan B and it’s effects

    I was raped and took plan b the day which was April 27th at the clinic and I had a normal period April 14-19and when I took the pill and started bleeding the next day which was April 28th and when I started bleeding I bled from April 28th to May 14th and I have not had a period or any type of bleeding since could pregnant you be a possibility because I was ovulating the time of the rape and my boyfriend keeps saying my breast are getting bigger and I’m having bad mood swings and I don’t even realize/notice it has this happened to anyone else?

  • Welcome to WH! I'm sorry that you were raped. Best wishes on dealing with it.

    As far as I know, Plan B is a large dose of a specific hormone that interferes with egg release and possibly fertilization It is not 100% effective or even 99%. A large dose of a hormone can cause bleeding and an altered cycle that may take a while to correct. I would think a home pregnancy test will give a better answer. They are generally right but could also be wrong.

    Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot?
