Brief Answer: DETAILS ARE GIVEN BELOW. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for writing to us. Following are my comments: Plan B (Levonorgestrel containing emergency contraceptive pill) is the main cause of withdrawal bleeding from 17th to 21st January. It is quite common and natural phenomena. Most women get this type of bleeding after taking the pill. Sore breast with hard and sensitive nipple is due to effect of Plan B itself as side effect. Wear tight breast support and avoid too much handling, drink more water and avoid mental stress. It is too early for blood work and the test is INVALID. You must undergo one home pregnancy test soon after missed period and repeat the test after 1 week to clear doubt. Hope, I have answered your query. Kindly, close the discussion if you don't have any other query. Wish your good health and take care yourself.

Brief Answer: EXTREMELY RARE CHANCE OF PREGNANCY. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for query. First or all, you did sex on SAFE PERIOD (12th January) according to your period date and additionally took Plan B which gives more than 95% protection against unwanted pregnancy when it is taken within first 24 hrs. Here, your chance of pregnancy is EXTREMELY RARE or NIL. So, you wouldn't be worried about that. Hope, I have clear your doubt. Practice safe sex in future. Regards, Dr Soumen
