    Pregnancy Symptoms After Period?

    *I am simply asking for advice on these symptoms. I understand the responsibility of being sexually active... *

    A couple weeks ago my boyfriend and I had unprotected sex. I understand this was stupid, moving on...

    I took Plan B 33 hours after sex. I was expecting my period 5 days later. My period was 5 days late, and I was nauseous, but these are obviously possible side effects of taking Plan B. I took a pregnancy test just in case, and it came back negative.

    I finally got my period and everything seemed normal. A day after my period ended, I had a horrible migraine-like headache and cramping. I rarely get cramps and headaches while I'm on my period, and never experience this after it's over. The past couple days the cramping and headaches have continued, along with a little bit of discharge, and nausea. I've also been waking up with horrible leg cramps in the middle of the night, and have a dull ache in my lower back.

    Could these symptoms still be related to taking Plan B, or could I possibly be pregnant even though I had my period? I appreciate any help. Thanks girls!

    I think you should schedule an appt. Cramping and migraines could mean that you could have developed a clot or something. So go have a professional check it out. Could be nothing, but I'd rather be safe than sorry.

    Plan B is just a super duper dose of Birth Control. I'm not a doctor, but I'm fairly sure you can still be pregnant even if you have your period. Plan B stops the egg from attaching itself to the lining in your uterus-it won't terminate a pregnancy in the works. Again, this is just from what I understand. So, I'd go get that new preggers test that measures from within weeks of conception. Especially if your boobs are super sore.

    And I am curious as to why you aren't on the pill to begin with? (not judging, don't care just curious cuz so easy)

    99% chance that everything is attributed to the Plan B. Everyone I know who has taken it has had later periods and messed up ones (longer, shorter, heavier, lighter, etc). Take another pregnancy test and if it's negative then discuss with your Dr what other possibilities are for the headaches etc. If it's positive you're a very rare occurrence,
